Give your immune system a boost with our favorite delicious Warming Miso Soup.
Using both red and white miso gives this soup an earthy-sweet complexity. Nutrient-rich wakame seaweed, portobello mushrooms, and tofu creat a soup that not only is delicious and versatile, but it’s incredibly easy to make!
Miso for the ages
Miso has been around for a really long time. Records of miso production date all the way back to year 701 in Japan and have been used in popular recipes ever since. There are many different types of miso to try, and an endless amount of information and history surrounding it. With most of the coveted types of miso taking several years to ferment, it’s safe to say that good miso is a form of art.
Check your labels
For gluten allergies, make sure to use white and red miso that is gluten-free. Red miso frequently contains barley, wheat, and rye, so make sure to check the labels if you have gluten sensitivity. We have personally used Miso Masters Organic miso for years which is gluten-free and perfect for this Warming Miso Soup.
Warming Miso Soup isn’t the only way to get the health benefits from adding miso to your diet. Try adding it to salad dressings, sauces, and glazes. You can even use it in baking!
Miso boasts an impressive nutrient profile and is brimming with vitamins and minerals like manganese, vitamin K, copper, and zinc (17). Keep in mind that it’s also high in sodium, so keep consumption in moderation and pair with plenty of other fermented foods for best results.
