Miso-Vegetable Soup

Miso-Vegetable Soup

Cooking with miso has been on my culinary to-do list for some time now. I nearly caved and purchased some miso last November when I prepared a batch of amazing “Rich Chicken Soup.” Instead, for that recipe I combined miso broth with chicken stock, rather than adding miso to chicken stock as the recipe intended. … Continue reading
