Miso Soup ….M’mmmm Yummm!

Do you like Miso Soup?

It is “traditional Japanese soup consisting of a stock called “dashi” into which is mixed softened miso paste”.  Although high in sodium (over 400% DV), one cup (275 g) of miso paste is an excellent source of dietary fiber (59%) and protein (64% DV), as well as a good source of minerals . Miso paste is also high in amino acids, the basic building blocks of protein. An excellent source of vitamin K and a decent source of riboflavin (38% DV), miso also provides small amounts of other vitamins. One major benefit of miso is its extremely high omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid content. (source)

I like miso soup because of its delicate flavor, and they are so easy to make! All you need is miso paste, seaweed, and tofu:

Do you know the ‘correct way’ to make the miso soup? A trick of the tray to avoid lump in your miso soup:  we should dissolve miso paste in a smaller cup of hot soup separately, and pour it back to the pot 🙂

It is ready within 10 minutes, and with this colorful pot from Lock&Lock, I can place it directly on my table!

It goes well with almost any dish: I just quickly sauteed some pearl onion and edamame.

And finish the meal with a cup cake :

Enjoy ! Hope you have a cool summer !
