Miso Soup

To say that I have become more adventurous in the kitchen is an understatement. Recently, I have learned to make my own sushi, I have frequented the Asian aisle in the grocery store, I have played around with different flours to create delicious bread, and I have developed a small obsession with fermented foods. Getting back to the point of this post…I want to talk about the fermented food called miso! Miso is a paste that is made from fermented soybeans and barley or a rice malt. It is most popular in Asian cooking. The reason I love miso so much is because it’s an excellent probiotic (you known—that good bacteria!).
