5-Minute Miso Soup

Who doesn’t love a good bowl or mug of warm soup at lunch or at night after a long day? I actually enjoy this as a small snack when I feel a little hungry mid-afternoon. Fills me up and gives that comfort feeling a good bowl of soup can do. However this soup has so many benefits. Did you know that miso aids in digestion, is a great probiotic, anti-inflammatory and can boost your immune system with all of its trace minerals and vitamins. Plus adding in the mushrooms and onions you are aiding in more improvement of your gut bacteria and health as well. BONUS.... this 5 ingredient, 5 minute soup is so easy you’ll be making this all the time. No need to call for take-out.
