What is miso? Miso is a smooth fermented bean paste (mainly soybeans with Koji malt). This paste is a Japanese traditional seasoning that has rich protein and "Umami", it also contains lots of beneficial bacteria.

There are many different types of miso which are linked to the identities of regional cuisines. Differences in colour and flavour of miso indicates how long the paste has been fermented. Miso can be used in many kind of dishes, dressings, sauces, stews, marinades including soups. You can find miso in many grocery stores and online.

Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup and one of the easiest ways to take miso. For this recipe, I thought of an easier way to make a miso soup, using ingredients that are available in supermarkets in the UK. I also imagined a taste that would be easily accepted by first-time miso soup eaters. By adding a small amount of Fermented Green Papaya Enzyme into this instant soup paste to combine miso, this can make a healthier dish that helps promote your gut health as a result of the synergies.
