Join me in a brief Japanese interlude.
Heat some dashi in a pot, taking care not to let it boil. In a small bowl, add miso paste and a little bit of dashi and whisk to dissolve. Add to the heated dashi.
Add good things like soft tofu, green onions, and wakame (seaweed).
Aren't you glad you did this?
