Japanese Clear Soup is something I occasionally crave. This ‘Nori Soup’ is a super quick & easy one. It tastes really good and surprisingly comforting. When I need a simple soup really quickly, no other soup can be easier than this one. This recipe is for 1 serving, and it will be easy to multiply.
1 cup Dashi Stock *OR 1 cup Water & 1/3 teaspoon Dashi Powder
*Note: Today I used Katsuo (Bonito) Dashi
1/4 teaspoon Salt
3/4 teaspoon Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Sake (Rice Wine)
1 sheet Toasted Nori
Toasted Sesame Seeds
Finely chopped Spring Onion
- Heat Dashi Stock (OR Water and Dashi Powder) in a saucepan, add Salt, Soy Sauce and Sake (Rice Wine), and bring to the boil.
- Tear Toasted Nori sheet into bite-size pieces and place in a soup bowl. *Note: Nori must be toasted. If Nori doesn’t smell good, toast it over flames until aromatic and crispy.
- Pour the hot soup over Nori, add some Toasted Sesame Seeds and finely chopped Spring Onion, and enjoy.
