Recipe By: Torajiro Kuruma (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/62)
Serves 2 Prep: 7 min Cook: 5 min

Ingredients

Water (soft) 400ml
Dashi stock granules 2.5g (1/3 tbsp)
Miso (red) 40g (3 level tbsp)
Wakame seaweed (dried) 3g
Tofu 1/4
Spring onion 1/2

Method

1
Rehydrate the wakame in hot water. It's amazing how much it expands! Drain and pat dry.
2
Bring the water to the boil then turn the heat down to medium. Add the dashi stock granules and the wakame seaweed. Add the miso through a strainer or dissolved in a ladle to prevent lumps.
3
Add the 1cm diced tofu and heat on medium for 1 minute. Transfer to a soup bowl and sprinkle with finely chopped spring onions before serving.

Tips & Note

I've seen miso that includes dashi, so if you buy this, you don't need dashi stock. 40g miso for 2 people is quite a basic guideline but you can adjust according to your taste with more or less miso or water.
Vegans should use a vegetable stock cube instead of dashi.

Broccoli is a superfood, I used it with tofu in this dish. The peanut satay sauce that you can buy at a supermarket as a substitute for sesame makes it easy to prepare this dish. It's both healthy and easy to cook.
