Heat your favorite oil in the bottom of soup pot. Saute diced garlic and spices for 30 seconds. Add water and any combination of optional ingredients. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Draw off 1-2 quarts of broth and, in a large mixing bowl, mix with miso paste (miso varies in strength so use about 2-3 tubs or pounds). When all the miso is smoothly mixed into the broth, return it to the vegetables, stir and serve. Note: Do not boil the miso; it kills the beneficial microorganisms.
