Preparation

  1. Saturate Seaweed in a few oz's of water for 15 minutes.
  2. **if using Shirataki noodles, prep needed for best flavor. Boil in water for 2 minutes, drain and bring back to pot or skillet to heat until dried. They'll make a sound when frying, you'll toss the noodles every time you hear this, roughly 1 minute 4-5 times. Idea is to dry the noodle out. You can also smell the steam to see if the bitterness has diminished. Process takes 15 minutes.
  3. Add water and stock to a pot, turn on medium heat, add mushrooms and miso paste to stir in miso.
  4. Add saturated seaweed and scallions. Cook 2-3 minutes on medium. Serve into 2-3 bowls, fill the bowls evenly with the Shirataki noodles if you wish. Not necessary but adds a noodle to your life.
