Pumpkin Miso Soup
Miso soup kicked up a bit with the addition of pumpkin puree. A great way to add depth and richness, plus a little nutrient boost, to an already nutritious and delicious dish. Feel free to substitute tofu for the tempeh if you can’t find it.

- 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 1/2 tbsp tamari
- 1/8 tsp ground ginger
