Chef Tips

I often buy special or difficult to find food items on Amazon. You can find Instant Dashi there. Better yet, they deliver
If you are watching your salt cut the amount of soy sauce to 1/2 cup
If you don’t need to feed 6, portion the soup into single portions and bag in quart Ziplocks. Lay them flat in the freezer to freeze for another day, another meal. This is ‘Bag and Freeze’!
