Miso is a source of amazing health benefits that can only enhance daily nutrition. With its wide range of functional properties – its ability to positively affect one’s health - miso deserves a place in our daily cooking. It is a simple staple to use, requires no cooking and is a positive replacement to salt and to commercial beef and chicken flavored broths found on the market.
Miso can be used as a base for soups, broths, sauces, vinaigrettes, marinades, dips, as an ingredient for recipes of all kinds. It is versatile and ready to use directly in any prepared meal including as a meat substitute. It can be part of a daily diet of 2 to 3 servings per person (20 to 30 grams) that equals 2 to 3 cups of broth a day. In addition to being an excellent soup base, miso’s rich taste and digestive properties lend themselves well to all types of recipes.
