Quickbite: Miso-Health-Giving Elixir
Not so long ago, miso was an ingredient that was only available in Asian specialty markets, but these days walk into any well-stocked supermarket and there it is with all the other soy products. And more than likely you have a choice of light or dark.
As you will see in the video, I introduce you to the two main varieties, “white” (miso shiro) and red or dark (aka miso) and discuss their various uses. But you might be surprised at the fantastic health-giving properties. For instance:
· It’s packed with vegetable protein.
· The numerous minerals help to strengthen the immune system so it really helps to fight colds and the flu.
· Miso may even help to lower the incidence in breast cancer.
And if you go to the recipe section, there’s one of my favorite versions of a sumptuous, but easy miso soup.
