Seaweed & Tofu Soup

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/seaweed_tofu_soup.html

From EatingWell:  July/August 2010

Korean meals always include soups—like this mild one based on vitamin-rich wakame seaweed, the same kind often used in miso soup.

Makes 5 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place seaweed in a medium bowl, cover with water and let soak for 20 minutes.
  2. Combine steak (if using), scallions, garlic, sesame oil and pepper in another bowl.
  3. Warm a medium saucepan over high heat and add the scallion mixture. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in 4 cups water and miso. Reduce the heat to medium-low so the liquid does not boil. Whisk to dissolve the miso.
  4. Drain the seaweed and stir it into the soup along with tofu. Cook over medium-low for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Taste and season with more miso, if desired.
