Miso Eggplant

This miso paste is a Health Synergy staple – it is quick and easy to make and goes well with so many things (especially eggplant!)

We recommend serving with sesame seeds, sprouts and Power Superfoods organic wakame flakes. Wakame seaweed is one of our favourite ways to add flavour and nutrients to our savoury dishes… It contains Vitamin A, B2, B9, C, D and E as well as magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium and iodine.

If you’re a serious miso lover like us, try our ‘Creamy Miso Cashew Mayo‘… This one is always a crowd pleaser.
