Miso is a fermented bean/grain paste that originated in Asia. Always add your miso just before removing the soup from the heat.
When I was growing up my dad always made me a hearty miso soup for breakfast, usually with whatever vegetables we had on hand. He would also sometimes add rice or rice noodles to the soup and left-over rice or noodles. It was very comforting having soup for breakfast, especially on a cold snowy winter day in the Colorado mountains. It did not occur to me until later that it was unusual to have miso soup for breakfast compared to the typical American fare my friends were used to. My dad picked up the recipe from his Chinese language and martial arts teachers who swore by its health properties.Submitted by RAINSPARK
