Spicy tomato soup with miso gochujang and creamy mozzarella

About The Recipe

The soup is finished with a swirl of creamy mozzarella, which melts into the hot soup, adding a luxurious texture and balancing the spiciness. This dish is warming, comforting, and full of flavor, ideal for a cozy night in or as a starter for a more elaborate meal.
