Curry Flavor Miso Soup

When the main course is a Western menu, standard miso soup may not be what you are looking for, but with this curry flavored twist, the whole meal may be brought to balance. The basic recipe is a Japanese-style miso soup, but with the addition of curry, the soup pairs well with non-Japanese cuisine as well. We encourage you to try it with your favorite ingredients and add it to your miso soup repertoire.
