Can you recomend a Miso soup brand? [Moved from Home Cooking board]

I've a recipe that calls for a package of dehydrated red miso soup. I've seen several brands in the store and the last one I tried didn't taste very good. Anyone have consistent good luck with one in particular?

    I can recommend NOT using Kikkoman. The tofu is made of styrofoam.

      Rather than using dehydrated miso soup mixes, it's just as easy to make miso with dashi powder. You can get dashi powder from Asian markets or online, http://importfood.com/sphd2291.html.

      Dissolve the dashi powder in water, bring to a boil, stir in some miso paste, also available in Asian markets or online, and some tofu cubes and you got miso soup.

        Mishima is my favorite brand for dehydrated miso soup. You might substitute regular miso soup by removing an equal amount of liquid from your original recipe.
