Mmmm…our mouths are watering already. If you've never had miso soup, than you're missing out! Luckily, Mariko's got a simple and easy recipe for you to make at home that will have your belly begging for more!
Miso Soup with Watercress
Miso soup is full of anti-aging benefits, which make the recipe an important part of any diet! Miso is fermented, which creates beneficial bacteria for our digestive tract and strengthens the immune system. (Serves 4.)
1 pound extra firm tofu, cut into ½ inch cubes
3 cups vegetable or chicken broth (use low sodium as the miso paste is salty)
6 Tbsp miso paste (experiment with different varieties; barley, brown rice, red, yellow, white – they are all delicious)
1 bunch watercress, chopped (spinach is great too)
Mix broth and miso paste in saucepan. Add tofu, and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off heat, and add watercress, stirring softly until wilted (about a minute)
