Bella’s Miso Soup

This recipe really came out of nowhere to be honest! I love miso when I go our for sushi, but I had never before made it at home! Looking through my fridge I had an odd assortment of various veggies and then my jar of miso caught my eye! I used a brown rice miso for this soup, but you can use any- soy bean, barely, nato miso will all work great. If you’re new to miso start with a little less- you can always add more! Feel free to add any veggies you have on hand, you can also use regular rice or soba noodles too instead of the zucchini noodles.
