Miso Recipes

Miso (pronounced mee-so) is an all-purpose and delicious seasoning for flavoring soups and meats or vegetable dishes, or for making salad dressings, sauces, and spreads. It is not a staple in the American kitchen but it is in the Chinese and Japanese culture dating back 2.500 years. Is a favorite, in fact Miso soup is eaten for breakfast in Japan.

Our Miso is a paste made from non-gmo soybeans, sea salt and koji (a fermentation starter), and  mixed with rice or barley and spices like peppers. The mixture is allowed to ferment for 3 months to 3 years, which produces an enzyme-rich food.  Our Miso is not pasteurized and so has all the benefits, amongst them are the complete array of amino acids, which makes it a complete protein. It serves as a probiotic, helps with digestion and is a good vegetable source of B Vitamins.

Here are some recipes for you on how to use this healthy and tasty food. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Quick Miso Soup

Organic Miso
Water
Optional herbs: parsley, thyme or cilantro.

  1. Chop and simmer vegetables in water.
  2. Mix the miso with 1/2 cup water or hot broth: Place the miso in a cup. Scoop out about 1/2 cup of the broth and pour it over the miso, or use more water. Whisk with a dinner fork or a whisk until the miso is entirely dissolved in the water and no lumps remain.
  3. Pour the dissolved miso into the broth after the vegetables are cooked soft enough to eat and heat has been turned off. Stir through and it’s ready!.
  4. Scoop the miso soup into individual bowls and serve. Miso contains natural fermentation probiotics, so it is best when eaten without much reheating.
