"Mighty miso" by Michael Hastings. Note: To make dashi from scratch, heat the quart of water with 2 teaspoons bonito flakes and 1 4-inch piece (or 4 teaspoons chopped) kombu, or dried seaweed. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes, then strain. This soup can be varied by the addition of 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms, 2 teaspoons sesame oil, 1 tablespoon thinly sliced nori or 1/2 cup soybean or mung-bean sprouts, or 1 finely diced carrot.
