I made this as a little snack. I used regular Tamari which I found made it very salty - Light soy is a must if you are not using Braggs. I also cooked some somen noodles and thinly sliced mushrooms in the broth which made it into a filling snack - cooking the noodles in the broth will thicken it into a sauce though so bear this in mind.
