Whenever I taste GREEN BEANS miso soup, it reminds me of my grandmother. She is now over 90 years old and she used to raise many kinds of vegetables such as green beans, tomato, cucumber and so on.
When I visit her in the summer, sometimes I helped her to harvest those vegetables.
It’s very happy memory for me eating her miso soup with my sisters and cousins.
I think using green beans for stir-fry dish is popular. Please try GREEN BEANS miso soup sometime!

Ready to eat!
I prefer the crunchy texture of green beans so simmered them for short time. If you prefer soft texture, please simmer well!
I hope you’ll like this amazing traditional miso soup.
Enjoy your miso soup!
