Miso is an exotic ingredient (rich in umami) that you’ll use for all kinds of incredible dishes once you buy it – we promise. This brothy soup is packed with flavour and incredibly easy to make – the perfect quick filler lunch. Add more vegetables, strips of cooked chicken or even noodles if you’re very hungry.
