Leisa's Miso Soup
1 tsp olive oil or spray olive oil
2-3 mushrooms cut in chunks
1 green onion thinly sliced
1 small carrot thinly sliced
handful spinach
(you can use any combo of veggies. In the past, I've used bok choy, cabbage, cauliflower, zucchini)
1/2 cup cooked millet (or brown rice, or whatever whole grain you want. I've only tried millet, (first time this morning!), and it was nice and nutty)
2 cups water
2 tsp. miso (any flavor, unpasturized. Pasturization kills the good enzymes. It comes in pretty big tubs that last forever! It's supposed to be very good for digestion)

Briefly saute the veggies and cooked millet in oil in a small saucepan until they are slightly cooked. Add 2 cups water and simmer for about 5 minutes. While it simmers, take a little of the liquid out and disolve the miso in it.  Take the pan off the heat and add the miso back in (boiling will kill the good enzymes in miso).
