    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    This comes from Delicious Living and this is what they say: "Sweet and spicy, this thick soup uses a white miso base for flavor and nutrition. Serving tip: Present as an elegant start to any meal. For a more substantial soup, add cooked white beans and a handful of baby spinach leaves just before serving. "

      This was spectacular! I used fresh pumpkin puree. I also used almond milk in place of the soymilk. Thankyou for this great recipe!

      Sublime! I scaled the recipe down to 2 servings. Wanted to use up a half butternut squash and used that instead of canned pumpkin. I cut the squash into 2 inch pieces and cooked with a bit of water until soft. Mashed the squash and followed the recipe. The basil leaves is important in this soup because it really enhances the taste. This soup is not quite miso soup and actually I don't taste much of miso, but it's in the background nicely. Did not have roasted soybeans and used bean sprouts instead. The addition of cayenne and pepper does kick up a notch and is perfect. Thank you for posting this yummy recipe. Made for Asian forum's unrated Asian recipe tag.
