This vinaigrette recipe is extremely versatile and can be used as a marinade, salad dressing, or even to dip vegetables. The miso comes in a large sized container which lasts for months in the refrigerator.
I had no idea how many benefits there were from adding miso paste to your diet. Check them out below:
- Minerals. There are several benefits to consuming miso soup as part of your regular diet. Miso is high in zinc which can help to heal wounds and boost the immune system. The high amounts of copper and manganese in this ingredient can also help to protect the body from oxidative damage from free radicals while improving overall energy levels.
- Antioxidants. Miso also contains high amounts of antioxidants which will further boost the immune system and limit damage. Miso contains vitamin K which assists with blood clotting to prevent excessive bleeding during injury.
- Dietary Fiber. Miso is also high in dietary fiber that can improve overall digestive health. It helps to stimulate digestive fluid production in the stomach, replaces essential probiotics and strengthens the quality of lymph fluid and blood for better overall bodily function.
- Essential Bacteria. Miso is fermented, which means this product contains essential bacteria that can improve the digestive system. Fermented products, particularly those made of soy like miso, have been found to lower women’s risk of breast cancer. It can also help to control estrogen levels in a woman’s body.
