Miso Yummy

I’ve got something new to play with in the kitchen…


…and you can make lots of yummy food with itttttttt.


Have you ever cooked with miso before? My sister taught me how to make authentic Japanese-style miso soup awhile back, so I was really excited to pick up this Red Miso paste by Miso Master Organic from the grocery store the other day.

Besides soup, you can also make yummy entrees, salad dressings, and sauces.


I thought this sign inside the miso was interesting – wonder if it’s true?


I used the miso to make a play on my usual noodle with for lunch by making a big noodle bowl.

In the soup:

  • Onion
  • Edamame
  • Peas
  • Wakame
  • Udon noodles
  • Red Miso paste

It was fast, healthy, and tasty!


And I made something really awesome for dinner. Details next time! 😉


In random news, I finally bought more of my curly-hair-styling-cream, so I can wear my hair curly again! I don’t think I’ve worn it au natural in weeks…months? I usually try to buy the product on Amazon where it’s cheaper, but it hasn’t gone on sale in awhile, so I caved and just bought it at a local salon.

And I’ve got a road trip coming up this weekend. I’m pretty tired of traveling, but this will be for a fun event, so I’m looking forward to it. The only problem with road trips…I always feel like I’m forgetting something!

What do you always forget to pack when you travel?

  1. i’ve cooked with miso from time to time, but am not overly fond of it. i do however love roadtrips and can pack in about ten minutes flat. i have been known to forget my pj’s though and have to borrow a tshirt… oops!

  2. I love miso, it’s an absolute staple in my kitchen. I use it in soups, stews, sauces, dressings, etc. Everything that needs a little more ‘flavor’. We usually buy it in a 1 lb tub, and it’s used up fast.
    There are many different types of miso, experimenting with them is lots of fun.
    I also tend to forget things when I pack for a trip, like my pj’s or even my tooth brush!

  3. What hair product do you use? I’m always on the look out for a good curly hair product. The only one I’ve ever found that works on my curls is Tigi’s Curls Rock Curl Amplifier, but it’s been discontinued, so I don’t know what I’m going to do when it runs out!

    • It’s Texturizing Glaze from Alterna. I’ve also had good luck with Be Curly by Aveda…at least I think that’s what it’s called. I like that neither really feels very heavy/oily/gross in my hair. I barely notice the Alterna once it’s dry!

  4. I love the taste of miso and enjoy cooking with it but I but a new product that lasts longer in the fridge and is more portable.

    It’s miso in a bottle & I bought it at an Asian supermarket. It’s called “Miso & Easy” and the brand Marukome puts it out. It’s actually a squeeze bottle of miso and all ingredients authentic.

    I have try your recipes – they look delicious!

  5. It used to be that I’d always forget to pack Qtips. Gross, I know. Now I make a list of every possible thing to pack so that I don’t forget anything. I’m actually traveling for work in a couple of weeks, so I’m in the process of list making and purchasing travel-friendly stuff like peanut butter packets. I was hoping to try and stuff everything in a carry-on, but you can’t bring a disposable razor on the plane. 🙁

    • Forgetting Qtips is the worst! I’ve def done that before. But you don’t have to miss that one much before you try even harder to remember! lol

  6. i make tons of lists before i travel & have a toiletry bag always ready to go so i rarely forget things…but when i do forget things, they are usually important….like a sweater to go over a sleeveless dress to wear to a fundraising dinner when it was about 45 degrees outside. yup…had to go shopping (oh darn). 🙂
