Either you know miso or not. Maybe you’ll recognize it as the little bowl of soup you get with sushi restaurant or at a Japanese steakhouse. Or like me, miso is a staple that you need in the pantry or fridge and your world is not right without it.
A Japanese girlfriend, Yayoi, taught me this amazing and easy breakfast. Take a microwave safe bowl and add a few drops of toasted sesame oil, swirl and add and egg. Microwave until 80% done, the yolk partially set and still some uncooked egg white on top. Add 2/3 cup boiling water and 1 envelope of Kikkoman’s white shiro miso soup. Any miso flavor will work but I love the white with an egg in the morning. Even with the unreasonable rise in the price of these little packets of soup, this is still an inexpensive breakfast! The price is so low, you really have no excuse not to buy organic eggs, unless you like hormones for breakfast!
