CAULIFLOWER miso soup recipe


How do you like to cook cauliflower?

In fact cauliflower is not so daily use vegetable for me, and I don’t think there is specific cauliflower dishes as Japanese traditional cuisine. (I think broccoli is much more popular for Japanese).

But I have often come upon the scene people eat raw cauliflower for salad in America. Also, I can see many roasted cauliflower recipe on English website. I guess a lot of people in the world like either raw or roasted cauliflower…

I also learned Vitamin C in cauliflower is not destroyed easily even it’s heated. That’s a great thing to hear!

Ready to eat!

To be honest, I was surprised that cauliflower tastes really good with miso soup.
I think that cauliflower matches so well with miso taste because it doesn’t have grassy-smelling like a broccoli.

Bacon is also plays important role for the it giving us great flavor and stock.

Perhaps this miso soup would go well with cheese…

Enjoy your miso soup!
