Organic Healthy Recipe Organic Ginger Chickpea Miso Soup Recipe Recipe by Larry Cook
I’m going to show you how to make chickpea miso soup using Miso Masters chickpea miso. This is a sweet soup, and it works best as a side dish. So let’s begin. Turn your heat on high. Use about a quarter pot worth of water. While the water’s heating, go ahead and prepare your ginger. Once the ginger is peeled, go ahead and grate it using this side. Okay, pull your ginger out and add your ginger to the soup. Next, prepare your organic daikon root. Daikon root is a radish and it’s also a blood-purifier. Once it’s been peeled, go ahead and grate it and you’ll see the band-aid herewatch that grater. It got me on the last one. While the water’s still heating, go ahead and add dulse seaweed. Now, there are other seaweeds that people often add to their miso soup, but I like to use dulse seaweed.
I think it has a better flavor and it’s easier to chew. So just add a big scoopmaybe not that bigabout that much. So you want your water to boil for about a minute or so, so that the ginger distributes its flavor into the water. Once that happens, go ahead and add the daikon root, and then you’re going to add the Miso Master miso paste. This miso paste takes time to dissolve, and use a little bit more than what you would use with the dark miso. Now what you want to do isonce it almost begins to boil, you want to turn the heat way low. While it’s heating up because of the daikon root, go ahead and start stirring it in.
Notice I still have the heat on highit’s still heating it up, but I’m careful to make sure that it’s not going to actually start boiling. Breaking up the miso against the wall is how you get it to stir in. You don’t want to the soup to boil, so right about nowbecause it’s just starting towe’re going to turn it on low, and we’re going to keep stirring in the miso paste. Once your soup has a pleasantly strong flavor, it’s time to serve. Then just add some Barlean’s flax oil to it. This adds both flavor, as well as it gives you lots of omega-3 fatty acids. This is a delicious soup that makes a great side dish.
