Wonderful last minute idea, Guest Desiree

I came down with a cold the past couple of days and have been dying to make a miso soup with cauliflower. I didn't have all of the ingredients you had listed above, so I improvised leaving out certain things like the sesame oil and garlic powder but added leeks, cauliflower, red potato, and substituted celery for the scallions. To my surprise (because this if my first home made soup), it came out wonderful! Next time, I'd like to try it using mushroom as listed above just to switch it up a bit. This was very simple and tasty, thank you!
