Calling all miso lovers! This miso rice bowl is not only vegan and nutritious, but it’s also packed with flavor. The filling rice, the soft sweet potatoes and the aromatic mushrooms make this bowl a very special taste experience.

What is Miso?

Miso is a fermented paste usually made from soybeans. The paste comes from Japanese cuisine, where as a basic ingredient it gives many dishes a salty umami taste. To make it, soybeans are mixed with salt and koji, a mold that is also used to make sake. Depending on the variety, miso also contains barley, rice, rye or other grains. In order to preserve the unique taste of the miso paste, the mixture is fermented for months or even years. The longer it ferments, the darker and more complex the miso paste becomes.

Miso is extremely healthy because the paste contains probiotics, healthy bacteria that boost our immunity and promote gut health. Miso can even have a positive effect on depression and anxiety.

For my dish I use light miso paste, which has a mild and light taste.

How to make the miso rice bowl?

MISO RICE:

  1. Soak the shiitake mushrooms according to package directions. They are usually soaked in warm water for 10 minutes.
  2. Peel the onion and garlic and roughly chop.
  3. Now put the soaked shiitake mushrooms, onions, garlic, miso paste, oil, and soy milk in a blender and puree the ingredients into a creamy sauce.
  4. Pour the sauce into a saucepan and bring the liquid to a boil. Add the rice and let it simmer over medium heat for about 25 minutes.
  5. Optional: To add some Black Fungus mushroom flavor to the rice, soak the Black Fungus in water. Once soft, cut into small pieces and fry in a pan. When the rice has finished cooking, you can fold in the black fungus.

  3. Deglaze with some soy sauce and season with a little pepper.
