I think it might have something to do with the soba noodles… but Mr Moo thought that this was just the best meal. I didn’t make his bowl as ‘soupy’ so it was easier for him to eat the noodles and the fish. He ate the wakame seaweed and the mushrooms without and second thought. And the health benefits of miso are great for everyone!
For those of you who don’t know much about miso – this common Japanese product has a wonderful sweet/salty flavor that can be used in a wide variety of recipes. When cooking with miso use just enough to enhance flavor and avoid overpowering the dish with a strong salty taste.
Here are 10 scientifically researched benefits of eating miso:
1. Contains all essential amino acids, making it a complete protein.
