This miso soup is a product of Japan and is manufactured by Hikari Miso. This brand dates back to 1936, where a family in Nagano, Japan began a small business focused on creating high quality, natural and organic food products. Still, today, Hikari Miso is devoted to organic practices that are good for the land, air and water. The efforts of this company help to reduce emissions, packaging and waste. Not only is this brand devoted to the environment, but they also create quality and great tasting products.
The flavor of this instant miso soup is like any other restaurant quality miso soup. It is salty, tangy and savory. It is made from organic soybean paste. And so, it has an umami taste. It also has onion and garlic powders that give it some good flavor. Each container contains three servings and each serving size has only 35 calories. There is one gram of fat, 630 milligrams of sodium, five grams of total carbs, less than one gram of fiber, two grams of sugar and two grams of protein per serving. This soup is gluten-free, vegan and includes fresh miso paste.
This miso soup is light and can be eaten by itself. You could also add a few simple ingredients to this miso soup to make it a heartier meal. Consider adding shrimp or fish, which go great with any type of miso soup. You can also add mushrooms, which will provide a complementary flavor as well as add a number of health benefits. Clams or crab meat will make the soup take on an especially umami flavor, along with more protein and healthy fats.
The instructions indicate to pour in the packets, add the hot water and stir well. Here, I'm going to open the packet. Inside, we find three packets of miso paste and three packets of garnish. We'll follow the instructions by emptying the fresh miso paste and garnish into a bowl. Then we'll add five to six ounces, which is about 160 milliliters of hot water. We'll stir well. And I'll show you how it looks.
