It’s been cold and windy here in Boston, and I’ve been really craving some miso soup. I’ve been making this super simplified, quick and easy version for a year or two now, and it’s so delicious and satisfying.
My secret is using miso ginger broth from Trader Joe’s. This makes life SO easy, and the broth is really yummy and totally clean. All in all, this soup takes less than 30 minutes to make and will leave you with 8-10 good-size portions.
I’ve played around and used all different veggies in the soup, my favorite version is just with shitakes. The seaweed I get is the Emerald Cove nori from Whole Foods, but you can find seaweed almost anywhere these days.
I hope you find this soup to be comforting and satisying. Enjoy! 🙂
