Rich and savory multi-purpose miso broth in just 30 minutes

Rich and savory multi-purpose miso broth in just 30 minutes

This multi purpose miso broth has quickly become a staple in my kitchen. While you can buy miso soup mix at just about any grocery store, it may be hard to find a variety that is as clean as one that you would cook up at home. This one has no oil or sugar and requires only 5 very basic ingredients…And it takes only 30 minutes to prepare!

Some of my favorite ways to enjoy it are to sip it plain; use it as a broth base for soups; as a replacement for water in preparing grain dishes like quinoa, millet and brown rice; or mixed in with steamed or sautéed vegetables.

Don’t forget to share your favorite ways to enjoy miso broth in the comments below - I’d love to hear from you!
