Daikon and Abura Age Miso Soup

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010
I've already posted a daikon miso soup but this one also has age. Age adds a lot of flavor and a little richness since it's fried. Mmmm fried tofu. If you're in the mood for something fried but you don't want to feel guilty, this soup is great because you only use a little of fried tofu and the rest of this build a meal is healthy.

Ingredients(Servings 2)
1 cup of daikon. (2 inches of a small daikon or just use half of the 2 inches of a large daikon)
1 age cut into 1/4 inch slices
2 tablespoons +1 teaspoon of miso
2 cups nibandashi

1) Make nibandashi or you can use ichibandashi. As a substitute you can use 2 cups of water and 1/4 teaspoon of dashi powder.
2) Add the daikon and simmer until the daikon is tender.
3) Add the age and continue to simmer. It should only take 1-2 minutes.
4) Add the miso and put the miso in a ladle and use chop sticks or something to dissolve the miso before adding it directly to the soup.

Cut the daikon julienne. I like lots of daikon in my daikon miso soup.

1 piece of age will do. Cut them into 1/4 inch wide slices.
