My husband and I love japanese miso soup. Is there anyone here with an easy recipe for it? I'd love to surprise my hubby with a japanese dinner for his birthday next month.

Miso paste is a great thing. I use it for soup base is differnet types of soup...not just tradational miso soup. You could add more vegatables and have a miso vegatable soup. Today I had it as a base for a spicy noodle soup with Kimchee (a korean spicy, pickeled/fermented cabbage), and rice noodles (Both kimchee and rice noodles are available at Asian grocery stores). The miso makes a great broth and making it spicy was even better. Hopefully it will help me to kick this lingering cold! It also makes a great salad dressing. There are lots of recipies for miso salad dressing online. That could be a nice thing for a side salad with your soup.

If you have a japanese or chinese market near you, you could find miso paste in one of those open fridge. Make the miso according to the instruction. You could also pick up tofu and dried seaweed to add into the soup. I've only been able to find dried seaweed (not nori, the seaweed you want is when you soak it in water it rehydrates to make it looke like fresh seaweed) in japanese or korean market. They also sell instant miso soup too. If you not sure what you are looking for, you could order online at http://www.asianfoodgrocer.com/index.asp you could find miso paste under seasoning. Also you could find a lot of japanese product that you might be cooking for you husband. Good luck!
