Yuki’s Tips

  • It is best to place a little boiling water in the bowl or cup first, in order to warm it up. Throw away the water and begin with putting the ingredients in.
  • You can add noodles if you want something a little more filling.
  • Double the portion of the recipe and add your favourite pre-cooked noodles in a larger bowl, and serve as a main dish.
  • You can choose any type of miso; light or dark. Adjust the amount of miso, depending on the flavour preference. Use white rice miso for a more gentle strength of flavour.
  • Dashi powder (stock) is available at most oriental stores: Kombu dashi (vegetarian kelp option) or Katsuo dashi (Bonito).
  • Alternatively, you can use powdered kelp or shitake mushroom powder.
