The Magic of Miso
There are few things as satisfying to me as a hot bowl of miso soup.
Miso is a product of the process of an ancient alchemy also known as fermentation. While it is traditionally made from rice and soybean, barley, chickpeas, and many other ingredients can be found in the miso on your grocery store shelves. The most important ingredient is the koji – the live culture that transforms these grains into the delicious, savory paste that we recognize as miso.
If you have not had the pleasure of a bowl of miso soup, I suggest you visit a restaurant that makes sushi or other Japanese cuisine. Once you’ve given it a try and you decide you enjoy it, you can purchase your own miso from Miso Master Miso online, or visit your local health food store and ask them to carry it.
Miso soup has replaced chicken noodle soup as my go-to cold remedy. I make small batches of savory broth and store them in my freezer for a quick and easy base for miso paste. There’s many variations on the common miso soup theme…
But the magic of miso doesn’t stop with soup!
