Tested till perfect Vegetable Miso Soup

Vegetable Miso Soup

Here's a Japanese soup that is home-kitchen friendly. Look for miso (a prepared soybean and rice or barley paste) and nori (paper-thin sheets of seaweed used for sushi) at Asian or health food stores. Because miso settles, have guests stir their soup before eating.
