Place the water, kombu and shiitake in a medium saucepan, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to medium-low and simmer 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the kombu and set aside. Cover and continue to simmer the shiitake for about 15 minutes. Remove shiitake and set aside. Turn the flame to off and add the bonito flakes. Let sit for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the unseasoned dashi into a strainer to remove the bonito flakes. Place the dashi back in the saucepan and place over a low flame. Add the shoyu and mirin. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes until hot. The seasoned broth is now ready to serve over any cooked EDEN organic or traditional Japanese noodles.
Note: the kombu and shiitake can be used once again to make a milder dashi or slice and add back to the broth and eaten along with the noodles as garnish.
