Miso Soup

Posted by tinako on December 22, 2009

Miso Soup, Brown Rice, and Swiss Chard

I read up on miso soup a little in an old issue of Vegetarian Journal (the magazine of Vegetarian Resource Group, permanent link is to the right).  Here is the article.  So I really had no idea what I was doing the other day when I made miso soup, but it was good anyway, so I made it for dinner tonight the same way.  I looked and the miso I use is Shiro Miso, so it is sweeter and good for winter, but shouldn’t be used with salty seaweed.  Good to know.

The article says that in Japan a very common meal is miso soup, rice, and vegetables.  So that is what I did tonight.

We went to the last Winter Farmer’s Market (ironically only one day into “winter”) but the pickings were somewhat slim and we only came home with purple potatoes.
