- 4 cups cold water
- 1 piece Eden Kombu, 4 inches long
- 4 whole Eden Dried Whole Shiitake Mushrooms
or 1/4 cup Eden Dried Sliced Shiitake Mushrooms
- 1/2 cup Eden Bonito Flakes, optional
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Eden Shoyu Soy Sauce, or to taste
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Eden Mirin, or to taste
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 Traditional Pasta.
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.
