This was very good, but with some extras, it wouldn't have made as much sense. I think I'll double it next time, and label it coconut cocoa syrup.

It's my first time making it and I'm surprised how easy it is! It tasted different from the miso soup I get from eating out, perhaps because I used white miso paste. The taste was not very strong but still good. I understand now why Japanese drink miso soup for breakfast as it can be filling. I omitted the spring onions as I didn't have any at hand too. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
