3️⃣ let it char a little for added flavour

STEP 2: IRON INFUSED BROTH⁠

1️⃣next, add 4 cups of vegetable broth along with 1/4 cup of tamari and turn heat to medium high⁠

2️⃣ bring to a boil, then add your Lucky Iron Fish/ Leaf⁠

3️⃣ after 10 minutes, remove the Fish/ Leaf and wash & dry it⁠

4️⃣ strain the broth to take out chunks of onions and ginger

STEP 3: ADDING UMAMI FLAVOUR⁠

1️⃣scoop out 1 cup of the iron infused broth⁠

2️⃣ add 1/4 cup of miso paste and stir till evenly combined⁠

3️⃣ pour it back in the stockpot with the broth and stir again⁠

STEP 4: TOPPINGS⁠

1️⃣ add your fav veggies: thinly sliced raw peppers/ cabbage/ jalepenos/ zucchini/ edamame/ steamed broccoli/ corn/ pan-fried mushrooms/ bean sprouts⁠
