- Place kombu into pot with the water. Cook over medium heat, uncovered, and remove kombu just as water comes to a boil.
- Stir fish flakes into boiling water and remove from heat. Let stand for 2 minutes. Strain the broth, pressing all liquid from flakes and return pot to heat.
- Add tofu and shiitake mushrooms and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and add scallions.
- Dilute the miso in some of the broth, add to the soup, and allow to sit a couple of minutes before serving.
When preparing miso soup, avoid boiling the soup after the miso has been added, since extreme heat destroys the delicate enzymes.
