Recipe: Sumashi Jiru
This light Japanese vegetarian soup was originally intended to be served hot, but it is equally satisfying cold, especially during summer when most people can't fathom eating a hot soup.
What You Need
2 cups vegetable stock (shoujin dashi)
1/4 a block of tofu
6 boiled broad beans
1/2 a teaspoon light soy sauce
a pinch of salt
What to Do
- Put the vegetable dashi into a pan and simmer over medium low heat until just before it begins to boil.
- Add the tofu and boiled broad beans and simmer for about two to three more minutes.
