Here is a basic miso soup recipe that can be eaten daily at breakfast to set your body in a proper state for the day.
3 cups water
2” wakame-soaked and cut into small pieces
2 dried shiitake mushrooms-soaked and slice thinly
½ cup daikon-cut into thin half moons
1 ½ tsp – 1 Tblsp 2yr. barley miso
1 Tblsp minced fresh parsley or thinly sliced scallion for garnish
Add the wakame, shiitake and the soaking water to 3 cups water and slowly bring to a boil. Add the daikon, cover the pot, reduce flame to low and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
Dilute miso in a little broth before adding to soup stock. Add to pot and continue to simmer for 3-5 minutes on low flame. Once miso is added do not boil just let it simmer.
Serve in bowls with either parsley or scallion garnish.
Before indulging in your miso soup, take a moment to sit quietly and set your intention for the day. It does not need to be earth shattering. Merely offer gratitude and at be at peace.
