Lickety-split miso soup
I have been feeling a cold coming on, and have noticed it in the kids as well. Feeling a little under the weather...miso soup delicious, and is simple to make. High in protein, rich in vitamins and minerals gives me the boost I need.
There are several different kinds of miso paste. Generally the darker the color the saltier. I prefer the lighter miso, it is sweeter.
2 tbsp of miso paste
4 cups water
2 tbsp dried shitake mushrooms- crumbled
1/4 cup tofu- cubed
1 tbsp wakame seaweed
1/2 tsp Mirin
green onion- sliced (optional)
In a medium pot add water and miso, stir until it is dissolved. Add the rest of the ingredients, and gently heat. Don't boil it breaks down the miso!
