While it can sometimes be a challenge to find vegetarian options at restaurants, but miso soup is not one of them. Popular in Japanese restaurants and usually served as an accompaniment to sushi, miso is an authentic Japanese paste made from soybeans and fermented grains such as barley or rice. Soybeans are a complete protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids. With it’s versatile flavor, miso can be used in sweet or savory dishes and dressings.

A note from the chef:
When I was in my early twenties, I had many health issues and allergies to foods, such as wheat and dairy. At the time I was living in NYC where alternative health diets and health food restaurants were all around me. It was then that I discovered the raw food diet.
The raw food diet omits most common food allergens, such as wheat, gluten, dairy, soy, beans/legumes, conventional peanuts, as well as meat and cooked food of any kind. Because it was so easy to access there, with the best chefs in the world inventing the most incredible recipes, I was able to eat it very often and noticed remarkable changes in my physical and emotional health.
