2” piece Wakame seaweed
Daikon Radish, see below for cutting suggestions
2 TSP miso (to taste), try using Barley miso, then again with Mello White miso
Finely sliced Scallions

Procedure:

1. Soak wakame seaweed for about 10 minutes. In the meantime bring 2 cups water to a boil.
2. Slice wakame into small pieces and add to boiling water. Reduce heat slightly and cook for 3-5 minutes. Add daikon.* Reduce heat to steady simmer and cook briefly, insuring that daikon is still crunchy. Reduce heat to low.
3. Place miso in a small dish and ladle soup broth to cover. Work miso into the broth with spoon until dissolved then return to soup. Raise heat to just under boiling. Add more miso if desireable. When first few bubbles arise soup is done. Serve immediately with finely sliced scallion garnish.
Serves 2

* The way you slice the daikon will determine how long it should cook. Thinly sliced half-moons will need only a minute, no more. Spears or chunks can go longer.
