Miso Soup with Shiitake Mushrooms Bok Choy

On the menu tonight – Miso Soup with Shiitake mushrooms and Bok Choy!

I recently put it out there to let me know what you wanted to see me make. A couple of my friends wanted to see me cook something with mushrooms. After looking at a BUNCH of recipes, I decided to make miso soup with Shiitake mushrooms and bok choy. Whenever I go out for sushi, miso soup is the first thing that gets ordered – but I’ve never made it. The time has come.

This soup isn’t difficult to make and really doesn’t take too much time. Some of the ingredients may not be in your pantry, I’m looking at you bonita flakes and kombu, but don’t worry they are easy to get in most supermarkets. You can go from start to eating in under an hour.

The next time you want something on the lighter side, I hope that you’ll make this dish!
