Combine miso and powder dashi and divide it into 10 portion.
Shape them into balls and put topping (such as sesame seed, sea weed, dry vegetables, dry herbs, and nuts) on them.
I recommend to cut those foods in short or crush into small pieces for the best result.
Put miso ball in a cup and pour 3/4 cup of hot boiling water onto it.
You can use soy milk, tomato juice(no-salt), or milk in place of hot water.
Story Behind this Recipe
Miso soup is a soul food for Japanese. However, it is takes a while to cook it from taking dashi. To enjoy miso soup easier, I make this convenient miso balls and store them in my freezer. You can enjoy authentic miso soup by simply pouring hot water over this miso ball.
Saltiness is depend on the type of Miso. For vegetarian, try making your own dashi powder by ground kelp and dry mushroom. You can add cooked vegetables, tofu, beans, and/or rice in a cup to complete your meal.
