In a large stock pot over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion, bell
pepper, celery and garlic and saute just until they begin to brown and the
onion is translucent. Add pepper, cumin, sage and cayenne and saute 1
minute longer. Add water, salt, tomato and corn and bring the mixture to a

NOTES : Miso is a soybean paste found in the refrigerated section of Asian
or natural foods markets. Although it may seem pricey at $7 for a 2 pound
package, it lasts a very long time in an airtight container in the
refrigerator and is used in many sauces, soups, marinades, dips, main
dishes and salad dressings.
