I once read that miso soup and steamed rice are typical Japanese breakfast foods. I'm the kinda girl who can eat any food for breakfast (leftovers, pizza, cake, whatever), so while miso in the a.m. might sound strange for western tastes, I thought, "what the hell?" So I started occasionally making a steamy bowl for breakfast years ago.
Then I sort of forgot about the miso breakfast option. Until this week. This morning, I had a big ole bowl of Miso Soup made with Westbrae Yellow Miso paste, sauteed onions and carrots, plain tofu, and nori.
I try to avoid white rice unless I'm dining out or eating something fancy like jasmine rice or sushi rice. So I served my soup with a side of brown rice seasoned with soy sauce:
What weird foods do you eat for breakfast?
