Miso Soup is a staple is everyday Japanese cuisine. This recipe is made with the standard ingredients such as tofu, wakame seaweed, green onions and dashi broth.
For a while now, I have been having Japanese breakfast, which consists of miso soup (a must have), white rice, rolled omelet, nato or kimchi (for a hit of good bacteria!) and marinated cucumber, along with a cup of either black or green tea (from te company) and a portion of fruit.
I love having Japanese breakfast because its more fulfilling, satisfying and more peaceful to eat?
WHAT IS DASHI?
Dashi is a Japanese stock, which is used throughout all of the dishes. (most commonly would be miso soup!) It was traditionally made by simmering kombu (kelp) and bonito (dried fish flakes), but if you are busy, you can also buy it in powder form which can be easily dissolve with a bit of hot water.
I absolutely love this soup, it is so comforting! (I can literally live off of just having a bowl of soup with rice and I will be happy!) Anyway, let’s learn about the ingredients in this dish and just how it can effect our body from both beneficial and “things to watch out for” point of view.
