This Japanese soup is simple, delicious, and low-calorie! It tastes just like the homemade miso soup at my favorite Japanese restaurant. This recipe can easily be doubled, halved, or made to any other size.

  1. Pour the water into a 2-quart pot. Stir in the miso until it's no longer in chunks.
  2. Bring to a simmer.
  3. Tear the nori into pieces about 1.5" by 1.5", but don't be concerned if they're bigger or smaller than that. Add to the pot.
  4. Dice the tofu until you like the size of the pieces. Add to the pot.
  5. Best enjoyed immediately but keeps well in the fridge.
