I love finding recipes to some of my favorite take out foods like Easy Homemade Miso Soup.

When my friend posted her recipe for easy homemade Miso soup, I couldn’t resist.

I ran out and purchased what I needed and made it the next day. 

This homemade Miso soup is so easy to make – only requiring four ingredients and it can be made in about 15 minutes.

You can add additional veggies to it, or cooked rice if you like, but I like the standard soup. Lots of flavor, and it’s pretty darn healthy too. 

It stood up to my taste tester, and will be made again and again. It’s that good. 

If you are looking for more soup recipes, why not try one of these?

Easy Homemade Miso Soup Facts: 

Most Miso is made from soybean (formal name Glycine max) which is a species of legume native to East Asia.

Edamame is a immature soybean.  Mature soybean are yellow.  Soybean are a great source of plant based protein.

Miso means “fermented beans” in Japanese.

You didn’t know Miso is rich in minerals and is a good source of vitamins B2, B12, E & K.

Also Miso is Vegan.

Now it gets interesting; Miso can also be made from fermented rice, barley or oats and mixed with “Koji” a fungus “Aspergillus oryzae”. 

This fungus or mold is used to ferment soybeans and grains, it is also used to make sake, soy sauce and rice vinegars. 

 

Miso also has many Health Benefits:

Prevents inflammation

Reduces blood pressure and cholesterol

Aids in digestion

Relives fatigue

It is an antioxidant, thought to have anti-aging properties

When buying Miso makes sure it’s been fermented for at least 180 days, and carefully read packaging see if you can buy organic and GMO free, and store in refrigerator.
