Miso fine...

Miso soup is a basic for Japanese meals. It is said to be very yang to get you going in the morning. So, it is eaten first.

This is made from fermenting soybeans and other foods, for long periods up to 1 1/2 years and more.  This 18 month variety is said to have protected the Hiroshima victims that ate it and brown rice from the effects of radiation poisoning. 

Try this:

~2 cups water (good water)
~1 small carrot cut into match sticks
~1/2 small onion choped
~1 inch piece of Kambu
~1 scallion sliced thin
~1 heaping table spoon of your favorite miso

bring the water to a boil, add the onion,and Kambu, simmer on low heat for 10 minutes.
Ad the carrots and white scallions simmer on low for 5 more minutes.
Remove form heat. Remove about 1/2 cup of mostly broth and mix in the miso keep slowly pushing on it and scraping a folk side to side on the miso, until it dissolves out of paste form.

Ad back to the soup but never cook miso...
Serve immediately ~ you may like to top it off with the green scallion tops and some cilantro...

This is great way to help observe your non violence, no animal products.
After about 15 minutes have some brown rice and veggies.

Enjoy the Day...
