Miso Soup with Tofu and Baby Spinach


This soup has all my favorite ingredients! Mushrooms, spinach, tofu, green onion....It's a very light soup that would go great with half a sandwich and is tasty, tasty, tasty! Plus, with prep and cook time, it was ready in about 25 minutes. This is great soothing soup--it's the new chicken soup! Add or substitute your favorite ingredients like celery, leeks or shredded carrot.
