Miso Soup

1/4 cup dry Wakame sea vegetables
4 to 6 cups water
1 medium carrot, cut into matchstick-size pieces
1 cup thinly sliced white cabbage
1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
2 to 3 Tbsp. miso

Wash the Wakame briefly under cold running water to remove dirt and excess salt. Soak for 3 to 5 minutes, cut in bite-size pieces. (You may use the soaking water for soup or reserved water from cooking any vegetables.)

Bring the water and Wakame to boil; cover, simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.

Wash and cut vegetables; add them to the saucepan, return to boil, simmer for 8 minutes.

Puree the miso with 1/4 cup soup water, stir gently to mix with soup and simmer 3 minutes (don't boil
after adding miso).

Garnish with fresh sliced green onions.

Great at breakfast with rice cakes.
