Simple Cucumber Miso Snack


3 small cucumbers

1 tablespoon miso* , red, yellow or white

Method :

Wash and peel cucumbers.

Cut cucumbers in to pieces.


This snack idea was given to me in 1998 by my Japanese friends. Travelling through Nepal, we used to carry a bag of miso with us, and when ever we felt the need for a healthy snack we just would cut some cucumbers and enjoy this quickly to prepare snack .

*Miso is a paste made from soybeans, sea salt, and koji (a mold starter), and mixed with rice, barley or other grains.
The mixture will ferment for a minimum of 3 months up to to 3 years.
