This is not a classical Miso recipe but a quick twist for a huge hunger. It takes 5 minutes preparation tops to mix all ingredients and a water boiler as the only kitchen utensil for people who do not own a kitchen (like me):
- 3 tblsps Miso paste (depending on the saltiness)
- 2 tbsps Psyllium Husk [German: Flohsamen-Wegerich]
- a few local green leaves
- 1 roasted teared sheet of Nori seaweed
- 1 little whole uncut chilli (optional)
- 50grms soy tofu, cut it squares
- 1 cup tomato juice
- 1 cup of boiling water
Psyllium is found in the husk of the seed and is a beneficial source of fiber.
“In traditional herbal systems of India and China, Psyllium husk was used to treat bladder problems, coronary heart diseases, diverticular diseases, hemorrhoids, high blood pressure and urinary disorder. It was also used to treat skin irritations, poison ivy reactions as well as insects bits & stings.
These are hygroscopic, mucilaginous and widely used for colon cleansing, better blood circulation and treating diarrhea, constipation & irritable bowel syndrome. According to studies, Psyllium husk is also useful in lowering cholesterol and to control diabetes. In addition to this, these act as a cooling, demulcent, mild purgative and natural lubricant which is beneficial in treatment of inflammatory affection”
