I love these videos

Just FYI, I don't know where you got the idea that there is a difference between natural and "fake" (presumably packaged MSG powder?) but there is chemically no difference. They are both monosodium glutamate, which means one ion of sodium to one ion of glutamate, and one source doesn't have more sodium than the other. It's essentially the difference between 100% pure tap water and 100% bottled water and calling the bottled water fake and full of excess hydrogen.

In fact, packaged MSG is usually purified from seaweed to begin with, so it's not even synthetic. Be careful not to fall for the natural = healthy fallacy! Plenty of things not natural are great for you (trace iodide in table salt, medicine, flouride in drinking water) while many natural things are bad for you (tons of highly toxic compounds found in many fruits and vegetables, almost all viruses and bacteria that cause human disease).

Sorry, love the channel, I'm just a scientist and love spreading the science love.

Martina I already know your a great cook, but how is Simon with the cooking? 😁

Author NightingaleSpica ( ago)
if you want a knock off version of this. I use chicken broth and miso. I have issues with tofu, for some reason I always mess it up and it tastes weird. so I add white fish. for the veggies thinly sliced English cucumber and mushrooms, and chives.

Author animeloverXinuyasha ( ago)
I love Japanese food but has never liked miso soup honestly. Despite that, watching this video really makes me want to make it from scratch like she does. I'm sure it would taste a lot better than just buying the dashi stock

Author eakoandcompany ( ago)

Out of curiosity, between Japan and South Korea, which country would you suggest people visit first if they intend to visit both countries in the end?

Author Sara Dryden ( ago)
I actually did train my cat to give kisses lol

Author suria hagumi ( ago)
Dear Martina, I wonder how long can I keep the paste in the refrigerator?

Author Eric B ( ago)
I have never had miso soup. Now, after watching this video it made me wonder how such an involved recipe took shape. Something that uses multiple dissolved and stained and fermented and re-hydrated and modified and etc. elements must have taken a long time to actually be worked out. I would never attempt to make this as it just seems like it is too forced. Glad Martina walked us through it and I found it funny as well that she skipped the seaweed at the end.

Whats aunt in Japanese?

Author キャット G ( ago)
You was doing PERFECTLY up until you started squeezing out the liquid from the katsuobushi --- don't do that, let it drip naturally as it will add a bitter flavour as well if you squeeze the liquid! The best ratio of miso to dashi is one TBS per cup than adjust from there. It's harder to take out miso than putting some more in.
GIRL, you gotta work on your いただきます, you're saying いたきます and missing the だ

Author sinbadx81 ( ago)
Nice recipe from scratch! Haven't done it from scratch (I used the pre-made dashi cause I'm lazy), but my favorite is to add sliced up abura-age (油揚げ)and julienned daikon with the tofu and wakame. Will have to try the scratch recipe with that. Great video as always guys!

Author Lugosi Dane ( ago)
I keep repeatedly watching this video, it's so relaxing. Do you guys think you can show us how to make Simon's favourite cucumbers at some point?

Hey there :D
Simon, you as a ranch lover might love the restaurant 'Twisted RAnCH' It's all about ranch!

Author Logica ( ago)
I absolutely *LOVE* Japanese foods but Miso soup is just... The soup smells so nice and since it's made out of fermented soybeans I expected a taste somewhat similar to Shoyu Ramen broth but instead I tasted something I will never forget, it was just disgusting. It tastes like someone took a rotten cat off the ground, fermented it then pickled it and then mixed it in a blender with 2 year old (expired) milk. It's, just... No... *Edit:* Oh and I forgot to mention, as soon as we got out of the restaurant I had to throw up and I am not a squeamish person. I ate pig brains, Balut, bull testicles...etc. without any problem... But Miso soup was just...

Author Rerezhang ( ago)
after you take the seaweed out from the pot, you can also use it in a seaweed salad! that's what my mom does every time she uses the seaweed

Author Francescadbg ( ago)
I found a miso that's already mixed with 2 different colors of miso and has dashi mixed in as well. Works well. Taste yummy!! :)

Author Lio Ishikawa ( ago)

Weird. You guys are in my subscription list but as I haven't seen anything in a while, I found your page and it said 'subscribe' not the 'unsubscribe' that would indicate that I was subscribed... after I hit subscribe it already had the bell clicked... odd. I thought Youtube was doing something about this
