Self-Healing with Miso


I’m sick. Blah! I’ve got a cough, scratchy throat, headache, etc., etc. Not fun, but it did give me the opportunity to try something new. I didn’t feel much like cooking last night, and I put out an appeal to friends on Facebook for some ideas to help me get through this misery. A few people gave the old “hot toddy” remedy, but I wasn’t too keen on that, but my friend Rachel, suggested miso soup. I had some miso boullion in my cupboard so I decided to make some for lunch today.

I added a 1/2 cube of the miso to two cups of boiling water in a pot and then tossed in the following:

1 carrot, speed-peeled and chopped
1/4 beet grated
2 cremini mushrooms, sliced
the end of a bag of frozen edamame
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
some Bragg’s herb mix
extra red chili flakes …

I had made some Gardein veggie burgers for supper last night because they were quick and easy, and to top them, I’d stir-fried 1/2 a red onion, sliced, 1 gala apple, chopped and about a cup of frozen kale, along with some herbs and freshly ground black pepper.There was some of this mixture still in the fridge, so I chucked it into the soup.

When I tasted it, it needed salt, so I ground in some pink Himalayan salt and added about a Tbsp. of Bragg’s soy sauce.

It works! ( I won’t go into detail, but I’m feeling better already!)

If you’re under the weather with a cold, or the flu, try this soup; you’ll feel better too!

  1. We are 50 miles from home. Almost there. The top of my to do list is to start ridding myself of all terrible eating habits I’ve given way to. Cleansing is a starter. Suggestions?

    • I’ve followed your food journey, and it’s been less than ideal, but I understand that’s how it can be when you’re on a vacation.
      I would start by cutting out refined sugars and sodium rich foods and maybe cutting back on some of the dairy too. 😉
