1 TBS dried arame or hijiki sea vegetables
12 oz firm tofu, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
3/4 cup chopped scallion
1 TBS minced fresh ginger
4 dried shiitake mushrooms
2 TBS soy sauce

Pinch of red chili flakes to taste
Salt and white pepper to taste

2. Place tofu on paper towels to drain some of the moisture while you prepare the other ingredients.
3. Rinse and soak sea vegetables in warm water while preparing rest of ingredients. Squeeze out excess water before adding.
4. Add the mushroom water to a 10-inch stainless steel skillet and bring to a boil. Add ginger, sea vegetables, mushrooms, scallion, mirin, and tofu, and simmer for 10 minutes.
5. Add soy sauce, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
