Miso Soup with Enoki Mushrooms Recipe
Randy Mayor; Mary Catherine Muir

2 tablespoons yellow miso (soybean paste)
2 tablespoons red miso (soybean paste)

Combine water and bonito; let stand 2 minutes. Strain the liquid through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Bring the liquid to a boil in a large saucepan.
