How to cook Japanese Classic Miso Soup with Tofu
The Japanese often begin their day with a warm bowl of miso soup. But it’s good anytime–especially if you’re feeling sick. If you have the Japanese pantry staples miso, kombu (kelp), and katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes or tuna flakes) on hand, the soup is ready in less than 15 minutes. The original is full of savory, umami flavor but also high in sodium, so I’ve cut back a bit on the miso and bonito flakes.
This Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole Recipe is amazingly delicious, easily chewable that just melts in your mouth combined with that savory cheese.
