Miso in the morning

I worked up in Canada this past summer and I stayed at different friend’s homes in Vancouver. It was at one house where I was introduced to this unique combination of ingredients. And at another home where I discovered I could add different sources of protein to my breakfast bowl.

Start with the main ingredients and then experiment with other seeds or meats or sauces to start your day off with fermented, salty goodness!
