​Ginger Miso Soup

In light of fresh Spring produce, and wellness, we’ve created a wonderfully light and flavorful Ginger Miso Soup with Spring Veggies and Lime Olive Oil from The Olive Press. This gluten free soup promotes health and can be made extra spicy or mild depending on your taste buds. We got most of this produce from Greenstring Farm in Petaluma, California.
