tiny carrot sticks (matchstick-like), lightly steamed
finely shredded cabbage, lightly steamed
a few leaves of spinach
Measure 1 tablespoon of the miso.
Place the miso into the serving bowls.
Add about 1/4 cup of the boiling water and stir to make a uniform paste.
Cut the tofu into tiny cubes.

I love the simplicity of miso soup. Most of the time I have these ingredients on hand, so at a moment's notice I can enjoy a hot bowl of miso soup!
