I like to make my own miso soup but I can't seem to find any instant dashi granules anywhere. I have been making it with bonito flakes and kombu (the tradiitonal way) but it is expensive and time consuming. I have tried going to several shops (Both supermarkets in Chinatown and a few of the smaller shops, Eden on Parc, the other supermarket across from PA) but I can't seem to find it. I dont like using the packets - i find they are too salty.
Does anyone have a recommendation or a good substitution?
