Green Miso Soup

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

It is now pretty well established that eating fermented foods is a great way to enhance our gut microbiome, and miso paste (Japanese style fermented beans - soy, chickpea, fava etc.) is a staple in our fridge so we can make miso coated roast vegetables or a simple miso soup. Miso is a good source of protein as well as a host of vitamins & minerals and dietary fibre. This may not quite be the traditional Japanese style soup recipe, but we all love it, and you can adapt it as you like, with different varieties of miso paste, other green vegetables and the addition of a good quality tempeh.
