Great for you and your gut.

Serves 2

Difficulty easy

  • • 1 ltr water
  • • 2 g dirt(y) hand harvested dried wakame, break or chop into ¼ inch pieces *
  • • 1/3 cup organic white miso paste
  • • Handful spring onion whites and greens, finely sliced
  • • 250 g organic silken tofu, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • • A dash light Japanese soy sauce
  • • A few drops sesame oil
  • • *dirt(y) hand harvested wakame comes from Storm Bay, Tasmanian

Bring water to a slow simmer. Add the wakame and simmer for 2 mins.

Reduce heat to very low and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir until miso is well dissolved. Try not to get too excited with temperature as Miso is “living food” and boiling it will kill the probiotic-good-guys which make your guts happy.
