What is miso?

Let’s talk about this fermented umami paste made from soy and mold called koji (Aspergillus oryzae from soybeans, barley or rice). Miso is traditionally used in Japanese cuisine and is used for its health benefits and delicious umami flavor.

Plus, there are nutrients and feel-good things in this delicious pasta! Miso contains probiotics, phosphorus, manganese, copper, vitamin K, and a variety of B vitamins.

Miso can be fermented for weeks and sometimes years depending on the brand and type, which lends itself to containing bacteria: probiotics. We know that probiotics (good bacteria) are very important for creating a healthy microbiome and digestive function.

The best thing about miso is that you can use it in so many ways, from adding it to a simple salad dressing, to a feel-good broth, to a paste for roasting vegetables, to marinade, to hummus, and the list goes on. I love adding miso to dressings and sauces because it creates this creamy texture without doing anything laborious to achieve it.

One thing to keep in mind when purchasing miso is the color; Simply put, the darker the color of the miso, the more intense the flavor, which is great for hearty soups and stews. This is due to the length of time it takes to ferment compared to lighter-colored misos, which are slightly sweet and perfect for dressings, sauces, and even desserts.
