Miso Soup

misosoupMiso soup is a quick and easy, soothing meal. You can make this soup raw by not heating the water to boiling.

Miso is a thick salty flavored past that originates in Japan. It is created by fermenting soybeans or other beans such as chickpeas and grains such as barley or rice. There are different varieties of miso based on the ingredients, and the fermenting and aging process. Some are richer flavored, others more mellow, and some are more sweet. Look for non GMO and organic miso such as Miso Master or Eden brands.
