Miso Soup
From: Deborah Wolfe

While this may not be an 'authentic' recipe, it IS quick, easy, and good...

  • 2 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 2 teaspoons of your favorite bouillon powder (or cubes)
  • 1/2 tsp kelp powder (or other sea vegetable powder)
  • 1/2 tsp sugar or Sucanat (optional)
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons Miso
Heat water in saucepan or microwave.

Stir in bouillon, kelp, and sugar.

Dissolve Miso in a small amount of the hot liquid, then mix this into the rest of the liquid.

Serve immediately.

Served with a bowl of rice, this is a very satisfying light meal.

Optional: Add some Tofu, cut into small dice.
Optional: Garnish with scallion shreds.
For Cream of Miso Soup: Add some Rice Milk. MMMM!
