Number of Servings: 4


    4 inch long piece of Kombu
    Hand full of Bonito Flakes (around 1/2 cup)
    4 cups water


Ensure you remove kombu before boiling or the flavor will be strong.


Soak the dried kombu seaweed piece in 4 cups of cold water for about 30 to 60 minutes. Put water with kombu in a pot on medium heat. Before water comes to boil remove kombu (when you start seeing tiny bubbles). Bring the water to the boil then switch off the heat. Add a handful of bonito flakes and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain through a sieve, pressing out liquid.
