As the daily elixir of the Japanese diet, homemade miso noodle soup is not only delicious, it also brings many great health benefits.
Miso is a fermented soybean paste that is made with a particular mould inoculated rice left to mould abundantly. The rice is then mixed with soybeans and salt and allowed to ferment for several days before being ground down into the paste that you see in stores. There are numerous variations of miso, made from different combinations of grains with soybeans, the lighter “white” variations are generally the lesser salty versions.
Miso is a good source of protein, dietary fibre, zinc, phosphorous, iron, manganese and also contains vitamins B2, B6, and through the fermentation process, also some vitamin B12. With the inclusion of edamame pasta, containing 42.3g of protein per 100g serving and 24.4g dietary fibre per serving, makes it a highly satiating meal and a great protein booster in any vegetarian or vegan diets.
