      I am nott leaving a star rating on this because it isn't a poor rating due to the recipe. This is more of just a friendly warning or suggestion to other cooks wanting to make this even though they can't find all the ingredients. We couldn't find Dashi so after reading other reviews I decided to make it using stock. I went with low sodium chicken because of the sodium content in the soy sauce. To anyone else out there considering doing this, DON"T I wasn't happy with the flavor of this at all, nor was anyone else in the family. Just one of those things, sometimes you can make substitutions with great success and other times.......well not so much. Next time we go somewhere near an Asian Market, I will be sure to pick up some dashi. I can't wait to try this as written. It sounds so good.

      This is absolutely delicious!! We could not find any instant dashi powder, so I made my own dashi stock. Part of that process included using shiitake mushrooms, so I just added those to the soup. I had a miso paste, wasn't sure if I should use red or yellow. I used red. My husband couldn't get enough! Thank you!

      We did not have any carrots, dashi stock and a scarse amount of miso soup powder but it turned out really great anyways! I used 2 vegetable stock cubes and also added 3 red sliced chilies for some heat and a few slivers of fresh ginger which I think really added just the right amount of kick. Can't wait to have it again!
