Healthy Miso Soup with Kale & Tofu

Kale is a real superfood - it can be a bit fibrous but it tastes good and is great for you!

Recipe By: Torajiro Kuruma (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/62)
Serves 2 Prep: 10 min

Ingredients

Kale 2 handfuls
Tofu 1/4
Water 500ml
Miso (red) 40g (3 level tbsp)
Spring onion 1/2
Dashi stock granules 2.5g

Method

1
Boil the kale for 3 minutes to soften. You normally need 400ml water per person for the soup, but I added an extra 100ml water to make 500ml total because some of it will boil off.
2
Add about 2.5g dashi stock granules. Turn the heat down to medium, it should not boil any more.
3
Add the 1cm diced tofu and warm through.
4
Add the miso through a strainer or dissolved in a ladle to prevent any lumps.
5
I used this amount of miso, 3 level tbsp, for 2 people. You could add more if you like it saltier, or reduce as you like.
6
Transfer the soup into a bowl and sprinkle with finely chopped spring onion.

Tips & Note

The miso amount depends on the manufacturer and also your own taste, so 40g for 2 people is a basic guideline. Use soft water if you can.
Vegans should use a vegetable stock cube instead of dashi.
