To me, miso soup is the go to if you're feeling like nothing will satisfy. Upset tummy? Dehydrated? Tired? Too much sugar? Hangover? A cup of miso can hit the spot. Miso is a sacred ingredient for many cultures and is often a daily ritual.
Your miso kit includes organic shiitake mushrooms that are dried, miso paste, and wakame, a sea vegetable.
Preparing your miso. You can keep it very simple or you can make this basic recipe and then add it to a vegetable soup.
1 Teaspoon Miso paste, diluted with a little warm water.
2 Dried shiitake, soaked in water and then sliced thin
1 loose teaspoon wakame, a sea vegetable
Bring 2 cups of filtered or spring water to a boil in a sauce pan, add the soaked and sliced shiitake and wakame. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and pour into a bowl, gently stir in the diluted miso. Enjoy.
Remember: Don't boil the miso! Your miso is full of live, active cultures. Boiling them will kill them.
Enjoy your cup of miso in the morning with breakfast, or before lunch. I like to sip mine in a mug min morning.
