Ingredients

12 g dried seaweed (Wakame type)
1/4 cup soy sauce 65 mL
2 tsp sesame seed oil 10 mL
400 g firm regular tofu, cut into 2 cm cubes 2 cups
200 g soba noodles, or udon
6 cups water 1.5 L
4 tbsp miso (fermented soybean paste) 55 g
4 tsp canola oil 20 mL
3/4 cup snow peas 70 g
4 green onions/scallions, chopped

Before you start

Individual 500 mL (2 cups) serving bowls are needed.

Method

  1. In a small cup, soak the seaweed in water for 5 min.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. In a saucepan, bring the water for the broth to a boil. Add the miso, mix well and remove the pan from the heat.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
