Korean-Style-Miso-Soup-1-300x200Ella utilized the water for rinsing rice as a base for the miso soup. The starch water is rich in carbohydrate. When the rice water comes to a boil, place a couple of dried anchovies, a few pieces of sea tangles (2 to 3 inches) and a couple tablespoons of dried shaved bonito in a larger version of mashed tea infuser ball. Immerse the tea infuser ball into the rice water and lower the heat to simmer for for 15 minutes for the flavour to infuse the broth.

Serve miso soup in bowl and sprinkle with chopped green onions.
