Soak wakame until soft; I normally soak it in the morning and prepare at night.
Rinse and Drain wakame, and squeeze out the excess water.
Cut wakame into bite-sized pieces
Stir in 1 tbsp soy sauce and 2 tbsp sesame oil, set aside.
Heat large pot on medium-high and add remaining 2 tbsp sesame oil and 1 tbsp soy sauce; sometimes I'll throw in coconut oil too
Add in just a little bit of minced garlic and diced onions to give the soup more depth and flavor. Cook for about 1-2 minutes.
Add in wakame and cook for additional 2 minutes.
Drop the heat to medium-low, add in the rest of the ingredients and cover. Let simmer for about 10 minutes then turn off the heat and let it cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Let the soup cool for about 10 minutes
