Miso Master Organic Country Barley Miso

Miso Master Organic Country Barley Miso is a long term miso aged naturally for 18 months through four seasons in traditional hand-crafted Cypress, Redwood or Fir barrels. Our Country Barley miso has a higher soybean content in relation to the barley koji and requires a longer aging period to break down the complex protein and fat molecules into their more digestible constituents. Delicious is soups, gravy or sauces!

Chilled Soba in Cucumber Cups

Chilled Soba in Cucumber Cups

Cucumbers and soba are a classic pairing. Buckwheat soba noodles’ earthy flavor is just right when set against cool and mild cucumbers. The salty, vinegary sauce ties it all together.

  • Author: GES
  • Yield: 1 Dozen 1x
  • Category: Salad

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 4 oz (1 1/2 bundles) Organic Planet Soba
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp shoyu or soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • green onion, sliced for garnish

Instructions

  1. Peel the cucumbers and cut into rounds 1-inch to 1 1/2-inches thick. Scoop out the middles to create a cup. This is most easily done with a melon baller; you could also use a knife to make the initial cut and then use a grapefruit spoon or dinner spoon to hollow out the walls.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a simmer and cook the soba noodles according to package directions, usually 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and rinse the noodles under cool water. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Whisk together the rice vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Pour half the sauce over the noodles. Add the green onions to the noodles, saving a few for garnishing, and gently toss the noodles to coat them with the sauce. Soba noodles are fairly fragile, so your hands tend to be the best tool for this task.
  4. Pack each cucumber cup with noodles, twirling them slightly to help them settle in the cup. Pour 1/4 teaspoon or so of the reserved sauce over the noodles in each cup and sprinkle the tops with a few green onions.
  5. Serve right away or cover and chill for up to a few hours. If chilling, wait to add the reserved sauce until just before serving as the noodles tend to soak up the sauce.

Miso Master Organic Country Barley Miso

Miso Master Organic Traditional Country Barley Miso is considered a Long-Term miso. It is aged naturally without temperature control for 18 months through four seasons in giant four-ton, hand-crafted Cypress, Redwood, or Fir barrels. It has a high soybean con­tent in relation to the barley koji (grain inoculated with aspergillus spores). Because soy­beans are much more difficult to ferment, with their high protein and fat content, than the high-carbohydrate grains, this miso variety requires a prolonged aging period. This gives the aspergillus spores and lactobacillus bacteria sufficient time to completely break down the complex protein and fat molecules into their more digestible constituents.  Made in USA.
