WHAT IS MISO SOUP?
Miso soup is made up of miso paste (fermented soybeans and rice, or a different grain), stock (dashi) and vegetable garnishes. Traditionally, a Japanese household will always have some miso soup ready to eat on the hob. However, to make it more convenient and suitable to our lifestyles today, miso soup is now often found in an instant format. These instant miso soups come as either a dehydrated powder, or they are left as a paste. All you need to do is add hot water and give it a stir to make your bowl of nourishing miso soup.
Today, more than 80% of Japan’s total annual production of miso goes into miso soup, and 75% of all Japanese enjoy miso soup at least once a day. Miso soup is a popular breakfast in Japan as it cleanses the body and has an alkalizing effect, which wakes up the nervous system and gives you enough stamina and energy to sustain you throughout the morning.
