Miso Soup
 for two

miso soup

Before you do anything, put the kettle on. When the kettle starts to make a little noise, take it off the heat. You just want hot (not boiling) water for the miso in a minute.

I only put the peas because I had half a bag of frozen peas that I wanted to use up. They're good in this, though.

2 cups water
1 sheet nori
2 green onions
1/4 block firm tofu
handful of peas, optional
2 Tbsp miso
1 sheet nori

Put water in a medium saucepan over low heat.

Cut the nori into squares with scissors and add to the pan. Trim and thinly slice the green onions and add to the pan. Cube the tofu and add to the pan. Add the peas. Turn up the heat and bring the soup to a strong simmer.

Meanwhile, put the miso into a small bowl, add a little hot water from the kettle, and whisk until smooth. When the soup is simmering, take it off the heat and stir the miso into the soup. (This is so it doesn't clump.)
