Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place water, wakame, garlic, dry shiitake mushrooms in a saucepan and bring it to a rolling boil. Lower the heat to a gentle simmer and let it simmer for the next 20 minutes
  • Pour in the soy sauce and miso paste, give it a whisk to dissolve the miso paste. Continue to let it simmer until the volume has reduced by half. Strain the liquid and press the solids with the back of the spoon to get more liquid out. You'll be surprised by how much liquid this mushrooms and seaweed can hold. If you taste it, it should be extremely salty. Remove from the heat into a heat-proof jar. Let it cool down and store in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks or possibly longer
