8 oz. firm tofu, drained
5 cups cold water
1 piece dried kombu seaweed
½ cup thinly sliced green onions
½ cup sliced mushrooms
½ cup chopped raw spinach
½ cup bean sprouts
First, you are going to place your tofu to the side between two paper towels to dry while you are preparing your soup. Then you are going to put your water and kombu, which is a type of kelp or dry seaweed used to make Japanese broths. You can typically find this in any supermarket or Asian market, but if not, you can always use vegetable broth as a substitute. You are going to bring this to a boil over medium-low heat, and while the water is coming to a boil, take that dry tofu you had put to the side earlier and cut into ½ -inch pieces.
Once your water has boiled, remove kombu (if you have this ingredient) and discard and reduce your heat to low and cook for one minute. Now you are going to add your tofu, green onions, mushrooms and spinach, and bean sprouts and boil for three minutes on low heat. Once finished, place miso pastes into a bowl and a little water from the tofu mixture and mix well, forming a loose paste, and lastly, add the tofu and mix well.
