Don’t you love the miso soup they serve you at authentic Japanese restaurants? So nourishing and warming, completely fat-free and low-calorie. I really wanted to replicate it at home. I went hunting for recipes and found that traditional miso soup starts not with miso but with ingredients I have never heard of and have no idea how to find: sheets of dried seaweed as well as something called bonito, a shaved dried fish. Eh, no.
