2 Cups of water
Some arame or 3 strips of dulse (soak arame in a bowl covered with warm water for 20 minutes and then rinse) (I used arame as it doesn't have as strong a flavour)
1 medium green onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. sesame seeds
2 tbsp. of brown rice miso paste (or barley miso paste... or a mix!)
NOTE: Be creative! Add whatever you would like in your delicious soup! I added celery and bok choy. You can add mushroom, spinach... or even noodles if you want a heavier soup.
Bring water with arame to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer (a low heat of 2-3 setting at most) for 5 minutes. Add veggies for another 5 minutes and while you are letting this cook, toast on a bare pan the sesame seeds and green onion. Take 2-3 tbsp of the boiled water out of the pot and place in a bowl and mix in the miso and then add the mixed miso back into the pot. Let heat for another 2 minutes and then serve in bowls topping with the sesame seeds and green onions! MMM!
Makes 2 small servings
I made a double recipe (ok... well all the arame fell into the bowl instead of half... so I had to make a double recipe!), which is why my pot is so big!
This recipe is from The Thrive Diet by Brendan Brazier and he has a few more tips/tricks:
-This is an alkalizing soup, rich in calcium and trace mineral, provides natural-source electrolytes to help restore balance in the body after exercise
-For a more intense flavour, lightly stir-fry the scallion and the ground sesame seeds in 1 tbsp coconut oil
-Black sesame seeds are also a nice variation from the usual white variety
-For added nutrition add 1 tbsp hemp protein
