Miso Vegetable Soup

Miso Vegetable Soup

Miso adds a uniquely earthy and salty flavor to soup stocks, and it's an easy way to add plenty of protein to your soups as well. This basic miso vegetable soup is incredibly quick and easy but tastes like you've put a lot of effort into the pot. It's also a great soup for using just about any combination of vegetables you might have on hand.

Make sure to add the miso to the soup at the end of the cooking time, as overcooking the miso alters the flavor and reduces the nutritional benefits.

I have heard that this soup is good served up for breakfast. But I think I would keep it until later in the day. It is supposed to be very nutricious and good if you are watching your weight!
