The Best Miso Soup (みそ汁)

My mother made the most delicious homemade miso soup. Although it isn't what you are used to seeing in restaurants, it is another popular version of the dish served in Japan. Onions, dashi, and miso paste make up this miso soup. The soup has a sweet fragrance called Amami, which gives it a mild yet deep flavor.
