  • In a medium-sized pot, bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the dashi granules into the pot.
  • Scoop miso paste in the sieve, then lower it into the stock. Use a spoon to stir it to dissolve and stir gently to combine. Be careful not to boil the soup as high heat can destroy the delicate flavor of miso.
  • Once the soup begins to simmer, add the tofu and wakame seaweed. Let them cook for about 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with sliced green onions, and enjoy while hot!


Miso paste varies in saltiness, so you can adjust the amount to suit your taste. Additionally, feel free to add other ingredients like shimeji mushroom or daikon radish to customize your miso soup.
