Miso Mushrooms and Leek

Miso Mushrooms and Leek



Mushrooms are great for soaking up flavour and nothing beats the umami taste of miso. This dish is super speedy but doesn’t skip on the nutrition. Miso is a fermented food, rich in probiotics, while leeks are a prebiotic fibre which feed the good gut bacteria. 

This dish is very versatile, from breakfast with scrambled eggs, to noodles with a stir fry or as a side dish. The dressing is also great with fish or drizzled over any green vegetable.
