Chinese style miso soup recipe

Have you ever been troubled with deciding the menu for dinner?
I think most of you guys have… So do I!

When I plan to cook miso soup (I make the one almost everyday…!), I have to think about “What main dish and side dishes would be nice with today’s miso soup?”.

For example, if the menu is Japanese-style meal, traditional miso soup will be very good with it. And if it’s dinner with bread instead of rice, milk miso soup will matches very well.

How about Chinese cuisine? Sometimes I cook fried rice and dumplings for dinner.
So let me try to cook exceptional miso soup which goes perfect with Chinese dinner today!
