I got this idea from someone, on some blog, I don't remember which, talking about eating miso in ways other than soup. (Does that count as giving credit? Geez) And so I tried this as a snack and it pretty much rocks– it also quells my sometimes desire to run to Dunkin Donuts for a creamcheese fix.
There are three components to my happy snack:
A Sprouted Grain Bagel
Way healthier than any other kind of bagel, even whole wheat. I get an onion poppyseed kind but there are lots. Ezekial is the main brand I know of, although I think I've been buying another cheaper brand I can't remember right now. They're in the freezer section.
Avocado has good fats, the kind that keep your bones from creaking but your belly slim. Way better than fatty cow products if you ask me.
A Spoonful of Miso
Any kind! I like dark barley miso but I'm not the boss of you. Miso is great for digestion, fyi.
Mash the avocado with about half a Tablespoon of miso in a bowl using a fork. You can use more miso but start small and add to taste. It can get salty fast. When well combined, spread onto a toasted bagel. And if you are the person that gave me this idea, please shout it out!
