Ingredients

    4 cups of Dashi
    4 cups of water
    2- 4"x4" sheets of kombu
    1 cup of bonito flakes

    6 oz, firm tofu, (place between paper towels on a
    plate with another plate on top to squeeze
    water out, about 20 minutes) 1/4" dice
    2 each, large scallions, fine slice
    4 tbsp, white/red miso

Directions

To make Dashi:
In medium pot, soak two small 4"x4" sheets of kombu is 4 cups of water for 30 minutes, with no heat. Then turn heat up to medium and bring to gentle boil. Boil 10 minutes. Remove kombu, increase heat to high, boil 5 minutes more. Turn heat to low, add bonito flakes and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain and reserve broth (dashi).

Return dashi to clean medium pot and add 1 cup of water to make up for the cup that evaporated during the dashi making process when it was boiling. Bring to simmer and temper in the miso, making sure to dissolve all the miso. To make for a clearer soup and less grainy, strain the soup several times with a fine strainer. Return the soup to the pot and bring to simmer. Add the scallions and tofu, simmer very lightly for a few minutes to heat tofu through. Ladle into bowls and serve immediately.
