Ready in a Flash: Quick Wakame Soup

This simple soup is perfect for those busy mornings.

Ingredients: 1 serving (large mug-full)

Stock cubes OR granules
1/2 cube OR 1 teaspoon
Dried wakame seaweed
1-2 pinches
Salt and pepper
small amount
as needed


1. Place the stock (crush if you are using a cube), wakame seaweed and water in a mug.
2. Microwave for 1.5 minutes at 730W. (If your microwave has a "drink" setting, use that.)
3. Season with two shakes of salt and pepper and top with scallions and it's ready to drink...
4. ... but it will be very hot, so be careful. The wakame softens if you leave it for a minute or two.
