Miso Soup

1 cup water

about 4 heaping tablespoons miso paste (more or less to taste - I personally prefer white miso over red, but either is fine.)

1 teaspoon katsuo-dashi (Ask for this and get your miso at a Japanese groceria.)

4-10 ounces firm tofu (to preference)

2 scallions, chopped

Drain and cube about half a package of tofu (more or less to taste). Bring water in saucepan to a boil. When boiling begins, add tofu cubes. After about 2 minutes remove from heat. Add miso paste and stir. Add katsuo-dashi and stir. Add chopped scallions, stir, and serve.

Serves 3-4.
