My Easy Miso Soup

For those of you who might not know . . . I don't really cook.  And when I do cook, it's lazy-man style.  I don't work hard at it . . . I just throw stuff together.  This miso soup was no exception.

Look at all these ingredients! 


I put around 8 cups of water into a pot and added 2 packets of this.

I added 1/2 cup of this sake.

I bought the following ingredients at Nijiya Market.  I added around 1/2 cup of this miso. BTW, Nijiya Market had choke mochi of all different varieties on a table right by the door.   I picked several of them up and said to them, "Awww . . . I miss you." and put them back down. There were some more in the refrigerated section, and I did the same thing. I think I might've even stroked some of the containers.

I thought this was cool so I bought it. It says, "miso something wakame".  I ended up putting too much into my soup.  It expanded a lot.

This is hasu.  Was kinda not too crunchy, but it's frozen that's why. Cannot help if you lazy like me.

Lastly, I added in some of this tofu.

My miso soup came out okay . . . not as oishiii as Kikuya Restaurant's, but not bad.  Me and my mom went to Kikuya a few weeks back after we visited her sister's grave.  She forced me to eat a huge combination plate there.  I'll show you a picture later.
