I used to spend hours making soup. But now, I just don’t have the time or patience. While it can’t compare to home-made soup, I always keep some chicken and vegetable soup around for those moments when someone wants some hot, brothy goodness. Last weekend, my son had a craving for miso soup. So I made tofu miso soup and threw in some veggies. It was quick, easy, and just hit the spot.
