Ahh, miso soup, the staple for most Japanese meals. It you don’t believe me, just Google ‘Japanese meals’ and more likely than not, you will see a bowl with a little cap on sitting on the right side of the main dish that contains miso soup!
But it’s a staple for very good reason, it pairs well with any dish and there are so many different ways to make it. I’ve seen people put tofu, spinach, seaweed, even Chinese cabbage, but I have never seen someone make it the way I do – with eggs!
It’s really easy to make and a great way to get your protein in the morning. There’s nothing like a nice bowl of hot miso egg soup to warm you up in the middle of Winter (or sweat out the germs in the middle of summer)!
Now, here in the States, it seems the health benefits of miso/soybean are debated, however in Japan, it is considered to one of those secret ingredients to live a longer life! Aside from being packed with folic acid and many vitamins, the fact that it’s fermented promotes probiotic growth which is universally agreed upon as positive health benefit!
This recipe is low-carb/keto friendly with about ~2g of net carbs per severing and is filled with real umami drawn from bonito flakes and packed with ~8g protein a bowl. It’ll make a great side to any meal!
