Basic Miso Soup

30 minutes or fewer
 
A powerhouse ingredient such as deeply flavored red miso paste (instead of the milder white or yellow varieties) is the key to this super-easy soup. Just don't boil it—boiling brings out a bitter taste in miso and kills the healthful probiotic enzymes that are so good for you.
