A gluten-free vegan tsuyu to use with soba noodles. It’s a balanced soup base typically served chilled.



1 Dried shiitake mushroom

1 kombu

2 sencha tea bags

3 cup boiling water

1/2 cup tamari

Boil the water and divide. With 2 cups of boiling water steep the tea for approximately 10 minutes. In the last cup of water soak shiitake and kombu for a few hours until reconstituted.  Combine the remaining ingredients.  Adjust seasonings to taste with tamari or a little more mirin if necessary.

Place in a jar and refrigerate until ready to use.
