Miso soup with Vegetable and bean sprout is a game changer in your diet plan! It’s still simple to make but is more complex in flavors.I love making this soup when I want something more interesting than just plain miso soup. Plus it’s a great way to use up that bag of bean sprouts that you forgot about in your fridge!
Be sure to pair this soup with some protein and carbs for a well rounded meal. My favorite pairings are Tofu, Chicken, Boiled eggs, Paneer.
What miso should I use?
People almost exclusively use red miso for certain dishes (I prefer the stronger salty flavor over sweeter white miso). My favorite miso is red or yellow miso without no dashi. However, you can also use awase miso (which is a combination of white and red) for a nice balance between sweet and salty. White miso is better for sauces since it’s a little sweet.
