I like this recipe, but after making it three times, I have improved it. I now add fresh sliced Shitake mushrooms and instead of a soy sauce enhanced broth I add white miso to the broth. These improvements make a heartier soup with more umami flavors. And like the other reviewers, I add 2x the ginger and garlic. I also increase the broth to 2 cups & salt the tofu whilst it browns.
