1 (8 oz.) Daikon radish, cut into bite-size pieces
1 lb. Lean pork
Fresh seaweed, rinsed well with water a couple of times
5 cups water
2 slices of ginger (optional)
Silkien Tofu, diced
1 tbsp of Dashi powder (Japanese soup base mix)
1 1/2 tbsp white miso paste
2 Scallions, chopped
- Place daikon, seaweed along with 5 cups water into a 2-quart saucepan and place over high heat.
- Add tofu and cook for another minute. Turn heat off.
- Remove 1/4 cup stock from the pot and place in a small bowl. Using a fork, dissolve the miso paste and add it back into the soup pot. Stir in the dashi powder. Garnish with scallions and serve
Always add miso and dashi powder before serving. Heat destroys the nutrition value of the miso,so always remove the soup from heat when adding miso paste and dashi powder.
