A healthy soup that can be put together very quickly and uses ingredients that are becoming easier to find even outside the Asian markets: miso (fermented soybean paste), soba noodles (wheat and buckwheat) or udon noodles (wheat), seaweed and tofu.
|12 g||dried seaweed (Wakame type)|
|1/4 cup||soy sauce, low-sodium||65 mL|
|2 tsp||sesame seed oil||10 mL|
|400 g||firm regular tofu, cut into 2 cm cubes||2 cups|
|200 g||soba (dry noodle)|
|6 cups||water||1.5 L|
|4 tbsp||miso (fermented soybean paste)||55 g|

Before you start
Individual 500 mL (2 cups) serving bowls are needed.
- In a small cup, soak the seaweed in water for 5 min.
- In a shallow dish, mix the soy sauce and sesame seed oil. Cut the tofu into 2 cm cubes and add them to the marinade. Mix well then let stand at room temperature while preparing the rest of the soup.
- Cook the noodles in a large pot of salted boiling water, about 4 min (follow the instructions on the box). Drain, then portion them out into serving bowls.
- In a saucepan, bring the water for the broth to a boil. Add the miso, mix well and remove from the pan from the heat.
- Heat the canola oil in a separate pan over medium heat. Add the tofu cubes and sauté 3-4 min, with occasional stirring, until they are golden-brown.
- Drain the seaweed, then add it to the serving bowls. Add the tofu, snow peas and chopped green onions. Pour in the miso broth, then serve.
