So since I've been learning about macrobiotic cooking and yin and yang for your diet. One of the cuisine which is great for giving a balance to your meals is Japanese Food.
Yesterday I made a simple Miso Soup with Wakame seaweed and it took me less than 5 minutes. So here's the recipe with some affiliate links if you'd like to buy the products.
CLEAR MISO WAKAME SOUP
RECIPE: Boil Water, add Wakame (which would expand into deep green seaweed), if you'd like the drain it you can but I generally don't.
ASSEMBLY: Pour hot water into a bowl, Add a few wakame (a large pinch is good enough), after which add a spoon of Miso per bowl. Then you can add any extras into the bowl. I added a small handful of finely chopped spring onions, sometimes if I have silken tofu that I chop that into tiny pieces and add them too. Once the miso paste dissolves into the hot water, your soup is ready.
Non Veggify: Add Fish Sauce for Added Flavour
PLEASE NOTE: Miso should never be cooked, since its a probiotic, all the nutrients will go with cooking.
Miso is rich in essential minerals and a good source of various B vitamins, vitamins E, K and folic acid. As a fermented food, miso provides the gut with beneficial bacteria that help us to stay healthy, vibrant and happy; good gut health is known to be linked to our overall mental and physical wellness.
