Nutritional Nugget

Miso is a protein rich paste made from fermented soy beans and therefore rich in beneficial bacteria, which helps to promote a healthy gut flora for improved digestion and absorption. Miso is also rich in minerals as well as B vitamins, vitamin E and K and folic acid.

One of the by-products of miso production is Tamari, a rich and thick dark soy sauce that is specifically Japanese. It is less salty than traditional chinese soy sauce and as it is brewed from soy beans without added wheat, Tamari is also gluten-free, whereas other soy sauce varieties tend to contain gluten.

 

Serving suggestion

I demonstrated and served this dish as part of my Intermittent Fasting Workshop. This recipe is an ideal nutrient rich to include with your meal if you’re Intermittent Fasting. You can prep ahead with this one (see above), so it’s ready to assemble when you find yourself ravenous and due for your next meal and it’s rich and hearty enough to satiate. Try serving it with a dollop of this delicious slightly sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus on the side. The flavours will complement the sharpness of the salsa perfectly!
