For the Miso
Soak the Dashi for at least 30 minutes or longer in cold water, bring to boil, then remove the Kombu seaweed. If you'd like to add vegetables, add these now and cook until your desired softness. Add the rest of your ingredients and let it cook for a few more minutes, remove from the heat and add your miso*.
*There are many ways of adding the miso into your soup. Here are a few ways:
- You can have the miso in a separate bowl, dilute it with your dashi water and then pour it back into the soup.
- You can place the miso in a miso sieve and mix it into your pot.
- Simply ladle the miso into your pot and mix the paste on the ladle with a spoon or chopsticks.
*Tip: Do not let your soup boil after you have added the miso - as this will kill the miso's fermentation process.
