    ½ Tbsp sesame oil

Heat the oil in a small pot. Saute mushrooms a few minutes. Add the water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the green onions and tamari. Reduce heat and simmer while you remove about 1/4 cup hot liquid from the pot to a small bowl. Add the miso to the bowl, blend well and pour back into the pot, being careful not to boil.
