Have you ever tried the little packets of powdered miso Soup? You open the packet, pour into a bowl, add hot water and stir, and there you have a delicious bowl of miso soup.
As tasty as those packaged miso soups may be, I prefer to make my own from scratch. It’s not difficult or time consuming, and unlike eating a packaged soup on the go, when I make mine at home I have the freedom to add all sorts of extras like tofu, seaweed, and scallions! Today, however, I chose to make a Collard Green Miso soup.
I’m starting the new year off right. Every chance I get I’m eating collard greens, and black eyed peas! You know what that means right? It means I’m guaranteed to meet success and attract a lot of money into my bank account in 2011. I take food traditions very seriously, especially this one. Collard greens are not only going make me rich (!), they’re also going to keep me uber healthy. Collard greens boast cholesterol lowering abilities, and support our body’s detox and anti-inflammatory systems. They’re full of antioxidants. Like other cruciferous vegetables collard greens are also a great source of fiber. If you want your body to benefit from the amazing offerings of the collard green, you’ve got to eat them often. Well, not only collard greens (unless you’re superstitious like I am), but all cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, cabbage, and more. Eat them, at the very least, 2-3 times a week, and your body will thank you. For more information on collards check them out at The World’s Healthiest Foods website.
