This lovely soup will do as a small meal or as an appetizer. It goes very well with steamed fish or dense bread made from whole flour and can also be served cold. Garlic, chili, and fennel seeds bring warmth to the soup and your body making it perfect for cold fall and winter days. The soup is also very rich in B-vitamins and enzymes good for your digestive system, both coming from the miso. And in potassium and magnesium from the parsley.
