What are the benefits of miso?

olive nutritionist Kerry Torrens says "Rich in antioxidants, miso helps populate the gut with immune-supportive bacteria. It contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a valuable protein source in a plant-based diet. It’s also a rich source of zinc, iron, magnesium and calcium. Adding miso towards the end of cooking, protects the live bacteria, keeping them optimal."


  • 4 tsp vegetable oil
  • 6 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 thumb-sized pieces ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp white miso
  • 500g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • 750ml vegetable stock
  • 2 large handfuls shredded kale


  • STEP 1

    Heat 2 tsp of oil in a large lidded pan and gently cook 1/2 the spring onions, ginger and garlic for 5-10 minutes or until soft. Add 1 tbsp of miso, all the sweet potatoes and the vegetable stock, and bring to a simmer. Put on a lid and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are really soft. Season and whizz with a stick blender until completely smooth. Keep warm.

  • STEP 2

    Heat 2 tsp of oil in a frying pan and fry the remaining spring onions, ginger and garlic over a high heat for 2-3 minutes or until softened. Reduce the heat, add the kale and a splash of water, and cook for 2-3 minutes until the kale has wilted. Stir in the remaining miso and season. Spoon the soup into bowls and top with the miso kale, to serve.
