It’s easy to remove the skin from a garlic clove. Simply place the clove on a clean counter or other hard surface and smash it slightly with the bottom of a glass or the side of a wide knife blade. The skin will slip right off. When Adding Miso to Soup . . . Because miso is a thick paste, it is best to first dilute it in a little of the cooked broth before adding it to the soup. And to preserve miso’s health-promoting enzymes, it should not be boiled. For this reason, it is best to add miso at the end of the soup’s cooking time—right before serving.
