What’s up with miso?
Do you know about miso paste? Chances are if you have ever been to sushi, you have had miso soup. Miso soup has miso paste. Same stuff, different format.
What is it?
Fermented soybean paste. Super common in the Japanese culture and used to add flavor in dressings, marinades, and yes, miso soup!
What does it taste like?
A sweet, salty taste. An oxymoron I know, but try it, you’ll understand.
Why should you make friends with miso paste?
Although it is high in sodium, don’t let that deter you. It is high in B vitamins, protein, and fiber…(keep things running smooth, okay??)
Best part? It is a probiotic.
Meaning: aids in digestion and boosts immunity.
Where can I find this at the grocery store?
The refrigerated section of your health foods store. Unfortunately, Trader Joe’s does not have this stuff. Yet.
