Miso Soup

This Japanese soup is so simple yet sublime and my kind of light, yet satisfying comfort food. It takes just minutes to prepare and is very nourishing. Miso is a fermented soybean paste. I prefer organic brown rice miso paste but any miso paste will work. I also avoid MSG so I shop Asian markets to find no-MSG Dashi Katsuo (Dashi no moto: instant powdered soup stock made with dried bonito tuna flakes (katsuobushi) and kombu).
