Fluffy Aburaage and Wakame Seaweed Miso Soup

Are you stuck with leftover aburaage when you buy a pack? Add some to a miso soup!

Ingredients: 3 servings

700 ml
Dried wakame seaweed
1/2 tablespoon
Dashi stock base
2 teaspoons
2 1/2 tablespoons
Boiling water (to remove excess oil from aburaage)
as needed


1. De-grease the aburaage by quickly pouring on a liberal amount of hot water. Once cooled, slice into 2 cm wide matchsticks.
2. In another pot, add the dashi stock base and dried wakame seaweed into boiling water.
3. When the wakame seaweed is rehydrated, add the aburaage.
4. Dissolve in the miso when the aburaage becomes fluffy. Bring the soup to a gentle simmer, and you're done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I created this recipe because the leftover aburaage was looking sad in the fridge.
