   Combinations for miso soup are endless. Just remember, for best results
   use three vegetables in small amounts and only cook them slightly. Pay
   attention to colors as well as complementary flavors.
   
   NOTE: When using EDEN Misos in any recipe, do not boil after Miso has
   been added. The beneficial enzymes are destroyed by heating.
