Vegetable & Meat Miso Soup
This is a Japanese dish, so if you don't have access to burdock, trefoil, you can replace it with other veggies such as mushrooms, or any of your favorites.
You can buy shoyu and mirin in the international section of the grocery store, or a specialty store may have.
Still very tasty!
