Taste of Japan #6 - Instant Japanese Soup Sampler Party Packs (

Miso soup is now the only 'safe' way to indulge in soy apparently: health pundits have now declared that 'Asian people traditionally only eat fermented soy'. (Never mind that tofu is not fermented.) Anywho, for people who can't be bothered to make miso soup from scratch, these pop-into-a-bowl and add hot water packs as convenient as tea bags. And like all good Japanese convenience foods, they don't need refrigeration. (Hint: don't try to open up a pack in a Swiss train compartment if you want to avoid people staring and muttering 'what's that smell??')
