      Yes, it's the matter of preference. You can use white or dark, or you can mix both.

    Tofu will be more tasty if you tear them or cut with spoon.
    The rough surface will suck the soup.

    Don't you need to add salt ?

    • Sasaki Hiroto
      Sasaki Hiroto 8 months ago

      No, because the saltiness comes from both Dashi stock and Miso paste , which balances the Umani flavour

    Bonito flakes are expensive in the country that I'm living in... Can I substitute dashi with diluted bonito soy sauce?

  • GeneralChickenPeice

    I cant seem to find dashi where I live, but we do have something called "fish stock" by a western brand called campbells. They make chicken stocks and soups and what not. Would that be the same as dashi? And even if it were different, would it still be acceptable to use instead of dashi? I cant find dashi or bonito flakes anywhere, since its pretty uncommon to get foreign foods around here.

      +GeneralChickenPeice If you're from the US or Canada just use amazon or find an online Asian food store. I'm from the UK and although there are probably some Asian supermarkets I could find I prefer to just purchase online. If you are from the UK, not sure if you are, there is an online shop called JapanCentre which has daishi.

  • Maureen Mizuno
    Maureen Mizuno 1 year ago

    A suggestion when making the dashi, I usually first put a a 1 1/2 inch square of konbu dried seaweed in the water and boil for 3 to 5 minutes before putting in the bonito flakes, I find it adds depth to the flavor of the dashi.

    • Maureen Mizuno
      Maureen Mizuno 1 year ago

      +Katarzyna Hoinka If you have an Asian market near you you can purchase an instant dash product called Hon Dashi. It is the equivalent to instant chicken broth. It is in the form of a powder but beware it does contain MSG. Home made is best and it just takes minutes to make.

      +Motaki666 It can taste like.. ANYTHING!!!! The magic of tofu!!! Haha, well jokes aside it honestly absorbs flavours really well so you can make it taste a certain way depending on what you want. I love having it in sweet & sour sauce, or fried and put in gochujang (spicy Korean paste). The possibilities are endless.

      Tofu is basically a soymilk solutions mixing with a coulant agent.
      It doesn't have much taste as it is but it absorbs seasoning very well! :)
      They have a video about tofu. Make sure you check it out :D

    I love miso soup but I didn't know it has fish broth... I don't like fish, so it's weird that I liked it at wasabi place, is there a way to do without fish broth? Or I just have to live with it haha

    • Maureen Mizuno
      Maureen Mizuno 11 months ago

      You might also want to try Chanko Nabe which is a delicious hearty, healthy soup. It usually also starts with a base of the fish dashi but it also has chicken soup as part of the base along with soy, mirin and sake. So here I think if you skipped the fish dashi and only used a chicken soup base you would be alright. You can check out the "famous cuisine channel" on you tube recipe for (chanko Nabe) or Sumo Stew. You might enjoy this. Be Blessed.

    • Maureen Mizuno
      Maureen Mizuno 11 months ago

      I see. The basic broth for Japanese soups is made from dried bonito " a part of the tuna family" flakes Konbu which is a dried kelp sea weed and Miso ( there are hundreds of varieties of miso the most common in dashi stock is a kind of white miso). There is also a fairly common but not in america so much red miso used in the dashi stock. These are always the three main ingredients for Miso soup. Are you allergic to all fish or only shell fish? If only shell fish this might not be a problem. However, you should check with your doctor first before trying.

    • cjmaddux

      How did you find out that you love miso soup if you are allergic to it? Did someone make a veggie broth for you the first time you had it? Seems like eating most Asian cuisine is asking for trouble with a fish allergy.

  • director1111
    director1111 2 years ago

    How many days survives a Miso soup in the fridge? The idea is to prepare Miso soup for a couple of days in advance as I want to have it for breakfast, so I only have to heat it up again.

    • Maureen Mizuno
      Maureen Mizuno 1 year ago

      +director1111 If you make the dashi ahead of time the day before, just adding the tofu, scallion, and and miso when you want to eat the soup your whole prep time will be less than 10 minutes. Hope this helps.
