Harry Hakuei Kosato - Founder of Sushi & More, shares an authentic supper recipe to try at home.
Miso soup and white rice are traditional Japanese breakfast staples. For decades, the soup has been a favourite of commoners and nobility alike. Japan’s culinary landscape is dotted with many unique and delicious breakfast meals containing egg, fish, and a fermented soybean called natto. It has many healthy vitamins and minerals like Vitamin K, manganese, zinc protein and calcium. Many of these nutrients support essential structures like bones and the nervous system and improve digestion. Although the solid elements are eaten with chopsticks, the soup is traditionally served in lidded lacquer bowls and consumed directly from the bowl. Miso soup is an integral part of washoku (Japanese cuisine). Chef Harry Kosato shares a simple recipe to try for dinner tonight.
