Miso soup is a favorite of mine and I never realized how easy it was to make. I also had no idea it was actually healthy for you. Miso itself has anti-aging properties, and is packed with vitamins B12, B2, K, and E. It is also good for the skin due to its linoleic acid. Who knew?! Wakame, the seaweed in miso, is also really good for you. It's loaded with magnesium, iron, and vitamins A, C, E, K and B12. Paired with the fact that it's so easy to throw together makes this a no-brainer. Here's what I did:
3T Organic miso (I used a brown rice variety, but there are lots of types)
Organic extra firm tofu, cubed
4T Wakame (I found it at Whole Foods)
6 cups water
Bring the water, carrot and miso to a boil, then turn down to simmer. Add wakame and tofu. Cook about 10 minutes. Add shallots. Cook 5 minutes more. Serve and enjoy.
