  1. Loved this recipe. Tastes better than the restaurant! And do t worry about the msg in dashi powder. The myth about msg has long been debunked!
  2. It is super delicious!
  3. Miso is fermented. When it is boiled, or poured into boiling water, the live, active cultures are killed. Take the soup off the heat and let it stop boiling before adding the miso.
  4. one of the best foods I have ever had I will eat it over and over
  5. es we11!
