*Ingredients in this soup can be found at an Asian specialty market and grocery stores with a large Asian section.*

Here is a scrumptious soup to warm you up on a cold day:

What You Will Need:

1 quart of dashi (recipe to follow)
1/2 cup of miso- add more if desired
1/4 cup dried shiitaki mushrooms, sliced
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1/2 pound tofu, cubed

2. In a separate pot, bring dashi to a simmer and add shiitaki mushrooms and  its broth (the water it was cooked in).

3. Add miso paste, stir with whisk (do not boil).
