From the Test Kitchen

*Cook's Tip:

Dashi is a fat-free and protein-rich stock made in minutes by soaking dried bonito fish (katsuobushi) and dried kelp (kombu) in water. The stock smells of the ocean and enhances the flavors of many foods. Dashi also comes in instant forms, granules and tealike infusion bags, which many home cooks use for convenience.

Nutrition Tip:

Compare instant dashi labels, as the salt content can be quite high in some. To reduce sodium further, use less miso, which contains over 626 mg. sodium per tablespoon.
