Hoff's Basic Miso Broth

Hoff's Basic Miso Broth
Serves: 1
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free

 
Ingredients:


Directions:
  1. Heat Broth anyway you see fit, I opt for 2.5 minutes in the microwave
  2. Dissolve the Miso in the heated Broth
  3. Stir in the Kelp
  4. Sip away while the snow falls...

Hoff Thoughts: Some Miso is gluten-free, others are not.  Check your labels carefully if this is a concern.  I intended this recipe as a sipping broth, but it could be the base for a Miso Soup if you wanted to go all the way.
