Miso is a paste made of soy beans which have been boiled, crushed, and mixed with a culture made of wheat, rice, barley, or beans.
The mixture than ferments for up to 3 years.
The paste which has the texture of cookie dough, is used for soups (miso soup), fish stock (known as dashi), ramen, sauces, marinades and dressings.
Miso, though used in Japanese dishes, originated in China.
This fermented paste is a good source of manganese, vitamin-K, protein, dietary fiber, copper, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, and choline.
Here is what you will need:
Also 4 cups of chopped cooked chicken.
Wow doesn’t that just look colorful. The smell and the color of food, that’s what makes it enjoyable to eat.
