What is Miso Paste?

Miso paste is made from fermented soybeans. Depending on which Miso paste you purchase, it is usually mixed with other ingredients. Commonly salt and koki, which is the same ingredient in sake.

The miso paste ferments for years until the intense flavor is reached. Miso tastes a lot like a salty paste. But the flavor will change based on what paste you purchase.

Where Do I Purchase Miso Paste and Seaweed Sheets?

They are mostly found in any American Grocery store in the ethnic aisle. If you can not find them, you can also check on Amazon.

Does Miso Soup Have Gluten

Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup that is often made with gluten-containing ingredients like soy sauce and dashi. However, there are many different types of miso soup, and some recipes omit these ingredients altogether or use gluten-free alternatives.

Is Miso Soup Keto?

Miso soup is a popular Japanese dish that is often eaten as a starter or a light meal. The soup is made from miso paste, which is a fermented soybean sauce, and water or stock. Miso soup can be made with various vegetables and meat or fish added to it. Although the dish is not specifically keto-friendly, it can be modified to fit into a ketogenic diet.

Some Pro Recipe Tips:

  • What Miso Paste To Use? I used Muso brand Miso paste
  • What Seaweed To Use: I used Ocean’s Halo Seaweed
  • What Noodles To Use For Miso Soup? Udon noodles, regular spaghetti, or lo mein noodles can be substituted for wheat spaghetti noodles.
  • Using Bok Choy? I omitted the bok choy “whites,” but they could be included if you prefer
  • Seasonings: Seasoned rice vinegar, soy sauce, or sriracha sauce if you would like more heat.

How To Store:

If you have any leftover soup, let the soup cool to room temperature and then place it in an airtight container. Place the airtight container into the refrigerator.
