<BASIC MISO SOUP/ 基本の味噌汁>
＜Yield> 2 servings
<Prep time> 5 mins ( It doesn’t include time to hydrate kombu)
<Cook time> 17 mins
½ cup( 100g) , diced, carrot
1 cup ( 200g), diced , onion
4 pieces shiitake mushrooms
silken/ firm tofu (100g)
1 tbsp dried unsalted wakame seaweed
20g bonito flakes
1 ½ - 2 tbsp miso paste
2 tbsp chopped spring onion ( optional)
1; Wipe off the dust with kitchen cloth. Soak kombu in water for 1hour to overnight in the pot.
2 ; Slice onion, carrot and mushrooms into about ¼ inch thick.
3; Heat kombu (step1) at medium low temperature until it starts to simmer. When the small bubbles start to appear around the edge of the pot, take out the kombu.
4; Turn the heat to high, and when the water starts to boil, put in the bonito flakes. Turn off the heat immediately as you push in down all the bonito flakes to let them fully submerged. Let it sit for 2-3 mins to steep more flavor.
Strain the soup.
5; Add soup back into the pot and add chopped vegetables. When it's cooked, turn off the heat and add cubed tofu along with dried wakame seaweed. Dissolve miso paste. Serve it in your bowl and sprinkle some chopped spring onion.
