10 fresh shitake mushrooms, sliced (if you can only get dried ones, then soak in warm water for 10 minutes before slicing)
10cm piece of fresh ginger root, peeled and grated
4 big cloves of garlic, grated
Simmer together for 30 minutes then stir 6 teaspoons miso paste and 6 thinly sliced spring onions into the soup until miso melts (do not boil)
