Roasted Miso Cauliflower and Mushrooms

Often times my recipes come about randomly. This one being no exception. I had some cauliflower but was a bit bored with making it my usual way. I really wanted to include some probiotic rich miso in my meal so I began mixing in different ingredients for the sauce until it worked! I also had some shiitake mushrooms that needed to be eaten. Little did I know how delicious roasted mushrooms would taste and pair with cauliflower. This recipe is quick, easy, and flavor rich. It’s perfect as a side dish or snack.

Miso (along with sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha) is rich in beneficial probiotics. These friendly bacteria help  balance the digestive system which promotes a healthy immune system, mental health, allergies, and skin conditions. While the heating of probiotics can kill the bacteria, studies have shown that the heat-killed bacteria does still have benefits. Plus, the flavor of miso is lovely!

Including probiotic rich foods in your daily meals is the best way to encourage a healthy balance of bacteria. Try using miso in dressings, sauces, and of course soups.
