Combine the jako, water, and chicken soup stock granules in a pot and turn on the heat.
Once it comes to a boil, add the dried wakame and garlic chives. Simmer for 2~3 minutes until the wakame is re-hydrated.
Drizzle with sesame oil.
Transfer to a dish and sprinkle with Szechuan pepper to taste.
User "Mukarunasu-san" used this in a porridge. It's also delicious with pickles.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to use up my garlic chives.
The saltiness of the dish will depend on the jako, so adjust with the amount of chicken soup stock granules. You can use Chinese 5-spice powder instead of the Szechuan pepper, if you prefer. It's also good without it.
