    Hi Wanda, this soups looks delicious. Think I’ll try for Thanksgiving. Have you ever frozen it? And what is miso? Is it necessary?

    1. Hi Aunt Elaine…this recipe actually came from my mother (but it does sound good). She says miso is a soy based seasoning product found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. You can substitute vegetable bouillon. This soup freezes well.
