Fennel-Ginger Miso Soup

Notes: Red miso paste is much darker in color and heartier in flavor than the more familiar white variety. Look for it in natural-foods stores; if you can't find it, use all white miso instead. PREP AND COOK TIME: About 30 minutes.

Yield: Makes about 2 quarts; 6 to 8 servings
