Servings: 4 Bowls

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins





  • 2 cups Kale (chopped with stems removed)


  1. Add entire bag of dried mushrooms to a large bowl; boil 4 cups filtered water and pour over mushrooms. Allow mushrooms to soak for 20 minutes to rehydrate.
  2.  Add 4 cups vegetable broth, mirin, tamari, miso, and brown rice vinegar to a large soup pot, bring to a boil and remove from heat. Whisk ingredients to combine.
  3. Add tea bags to soup pot and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Remove from soup pot before adding remaining ingredients.
  4. After mushrooms have finished rehydrating; strain them keeping the liquid they were soaking in to add to your soup. Once the mushrooms and the liquid are separated strain the mushroom broth into the soup using a fine mesh strainer to remove any sediment left behind.
  5. Add mushroom broth and mushrooms to soup. Bring to a gentle simmer and add wakame and kale to soup. Allow to simmer 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and serve with noodles and simple pan fried tofu.


1. Soup flavor “develops” after sitting for 24 hours, so make it a day ahead and taste and adjust when you reheat it for serving the next day.

2. If you want to add some spice to this recipe, try pan frying your tofu in our Traditional Japanese Hot & Spicy Sesame Oil for an extra kick.
