bring one quart water to a boil and add some kind of seaweed in small pieces. lower to simmer. once this boils for a few minutes you have a traditional japanese stock called dashi. but don't wait, add whatever other ingredients you have on hand in the order that makes the most sense for cooking times. for example, first, add root vegetables, like carrots, daikon, or burdock. second add mushrooms. cabbage is good too. add tofu if you have some or any leftover grains. prepare chopped greens and garlic but don't add them yet! remove a cup of the stock first and then add the garlic and greens. cover the pot, then mix 3 tablespoons miso in with the 1 cup stock and 2 T tahini if you've got it. once its well blended return it to the pot and stir. garnish with chives, scallions, or any other onions. try not to boil the miso. this is a satisfying soup. enjoy!View Thread
