This is a quick and easy recipe for making Miso soup.
Miso soup is a very healthy traditional Japanese broth style soup made using Miso, a fermented soybean paste.
Wakame seaweed stock, high in vitamins and minerals, provides a subtle distinctive flavor.
We usually enjoy this soup at lunch time, but it can be a great compliment to any meal.
