Not only is miso cod with tenderstem broccoli a tasty and vibrant dish, it’s great for the gut and improves immunity.
Miso is a Japanese ingredient that is becoming increasingly popular. There’s no surprise it’s sought after, as it’s made by fermenting soy beans and the fermentation process is currently having a revival. Miso is believed to stimulate digestion (opens in new tab) and energise the body. We’ve also jam-packed this dish full of tenderstem broccoli, part of the cruciferous group of vegetables, which is a great source of vitamin C and dietary fibre (opens in new tab). As well as the broccoli, the edamame beans are great for your health. They are high in protein, rich in vitamins (opens in new tab) and minerals (especially folate and vitamin K) and are believed to be good for reducing the risk of some cancers. So, not only is this dish of miso cod with tenderstem broccoli tasty, it’s great for your health, too!
