    drbecca26's Note:

    I normally use fresh shiitake for this, as this is a more delicate soup, but if you really wanted a meaty texture you could use rehydrated dried shiitake, as they are far chewier, just be sure to remove the stems.

      Great soup! Followed directions exactly except used regular white sliced mushrooms and a little more tofu to use it up. Served over cooked soba noodles. Didn't slice the baby spinach, mine were small enough. Topped with fresh cilantro leaves and red pepper flakes. Delicious. ***Made second time with frozen spinach. It was not the same. Use fresh spinach for best results.

      This is a great recipe from Robin Robertson's "Vegan Planet" that my girlfriend makes for me when I'm sick- miso is excellent for your immune system!
