Miso soup recipes

A recipe from an anonymous visitor to www.fatfree.com:


This is an excellent, warming lunch or supper on a cold winter's day.   The
Japanese even have miso soup at breakfast.  It's quick to make, and so
satisfying you can't believe it's fat-free.    For a heartier meal, add
cooked soba or udon noodles to the finished broth, or, if you can't find
Japanese noodles, try plain cooked angel-hair or spaghetti.     

Easy Miso Soup

l onion, thinly sliced

1/4 cup sliced celery

1/3 cup sliced mushrooms

2 cups water

1-2 teaspoons miso paste, or to taste  (I like more)

Dash mirin cooking wine or dry sherry (optional)

Chopped scallions and/or nori sticks to garnish

Pour cold water over the vegetables, then cover.   Bring to a boil; reduce
heat, and simmer for 5-6 minutes.  

Remove pot from heat.    Dissolve 1-2 teaspoons of miso paste in a quarter
cup of stock,and then return to the soup pot.   If you want to add cooked
noodles, this is the time to do it.   Garnish with scallions or nori.  
Serves two.
