Those of you who live in Germany (or Northern Europe overall), will know exactly what I'm talking about if I say: Sometimes we need a heart-warming soup in Mid-April. We already had a few beautiful days during this Covid-Overshadowed Spring #2 but when I take a glimpse out of my Munich window right now, I can only see a grey sky with occasional rain or snow. But.. believing that the glass is always half-full not half-empty, there's no need to be upset. We can make our days shine with heart-warming food, such as this incredibly creamy Miso-Carrot Soup with Garlic-Honey caramelized Chia-Pecan crunch, lime & seasonal wild garlic green.
Do you agree? Then, read on and enjoy my absolute favorite heart-warming Miso-Carrot soup. Thanks to the protein-loaded Miso and Tofu insert and the crunchy nut topping that contains more protein and healthy fats, you can enjoy it as a full and balanced meal rather than a starter. Read on and enjoy!
If you know me, you know I'm the biggest fan of Miso - "Japan's Brown Butter" and a traditional koji mushroom ferment. Miso has a particular rich flavor kind of similar to soy sauce but, thanks to the creamy texture, I find it much richer. And the coolest part about Miso, it's gut for our gut and overall well-being as high-quality Miso is packed with living organism and is loaded with protein. Plus, by using Miso as a condiment, we naturally reduce the amount of salt we normally use in the cooking process. If you want to learn more about Miso, click here.
I currently mostly use Miso from my very favorite ferment provider Fairment, which sells unpasteurized and therefore "100% living Miso paste" with an incredible flavor profile. For the recipe below I used their Shiro Koshi Miso.
In case you're not in this pancake with rhubarb cream filling is a little bit to much for now or you're searching for a vegan alternative, here are a few more "Must-Try's" for your next baking session:
I hope you enjoy your warming protein-rich Miso-Carrot Soup with Nutty Garlic-Honey Caramel as much as I do when I'm the mood for something hot and heart-warming.
