Magical Miso Soup
August 14, 2013

Traditional Miso Soup is easy to prepare.  Its health benefits are legendary, making chicken soup pale in comparison.

Ideally, buy an unpasteurised, organic miso eg brown rice miso. It’s more expensive but lasts a very long time and has fantastic health promoting qualities.

  • 4 cups of water
  • 5 cm dried wakame or kombu
