<For 17 oz. Zojirushi Stainless Steel Food Jars>   
Ingredients (serves 1):

  • 1-1/2 green onion, sliced 
  • 6 oz. soft tofu, cut into 1/2 inch cubes 
  • 1-1/2 cups dashi (or 1-1/2 cups water + 1 tsp. dashi powder)

*This recipe was developed for 12 oz. and 17 oz. Zojirushi Stainless Food Jars. Adjustments may be required for making this recipe in other Food Jar sizes.  

*Please make sure not to overfill the food jar with ingredients, as ingredients will expand with cooking, and may cause the lid to burst. 
1

Preheat the Zojirushi food jar by pouring boiling water (not included in the ingredients list). Close the lid and allow to preheat.
2

Set aside a pinch of green onion for garnish. Place remaining green onions into a sauce pan.
3

Add tofu and dashi to the sauce pan, bring to a simmer and cook for approximately 2 minutes. 
4

Place the miso paste in a bowl, add 1/4 cup of soup from the sauce pan and whisk until smooth, then pour the mixture back into the sauce pan. This will ensure that miso doesn’t clump together while cooking. 
5

Just before the soup returns to a simmer, turn off the heat. 
6

Discard hot water from the food jar and place dried wakame inside the jar.
7

Fill with prepared soup from step 5 up until 1 cm below the ridge and close lid.
8

Allow soup to set for a minimum of 5 minutes and up to 6 hours. Stir and garnish with the remaining green onions before you eat.
