Put the firm tofu and soy milk into the pot of boiling dashi stock. Processed soy milk has sweetness that makes the soup mild.
Once the pot comes to a boil, add the sliced cabbage and the dissolved miso in the pot. Turn off the heat once the pot boils or else the soy milk will separate.
Serve the soup in bowls and sprinkle with ground or whole sesame seeds.
Story Behind this Recipe
I serve miso soup to my family every morning. I've been trying out different variations.
You can add a teaspoon of sugar if using unprocessed soy milk. Do not overcook the cabbage, or else it'll become too soft. Firm tofu is best than silken as it'll hold shape when cooking. Watch the heat and don't boil the soy milk, otherwise it will separate and does not look appetizing. Just warm it.
