FAQ: Can I have Miso Soup on Dukan Diet Attack Phase
Miso soup or misoshiru is a very popular Japanese dish which is now enjoyed around the world and the great news is that it can be enjoyed in all phases of the Dukan Diet.
It is also very nutritious as the miso paste from which it is made is an excellent source of healthy fatty acids, minerals, dietary fiber and protein. Miso paste is not a complete food by itself but when combined with the other ingredients in miso soup it becomes a complete food. There are two main types of miso. Red miso which is actually a dark reddish brown which is usually the strongest flavored and the more popular white miso which is a sort of yellow-brown.
I’ve posted a recipe for Miso Soup here and the video below also provides a recipe and shows just how simple making miso soup is. Just remember that if you want to eat miso soup in the Attack Phase or on Pure Protein days you need to leave out any vegetables such as the wakame seaweed and daikon radish. You can either put the vegetables in servings for others or save them to have in your serving of miso soup on a PV day. The scallions/spring onions are allowed on any day as they are classed as a condiment. On PV days you might also want to add a few different vegetable such as mushrooms, julienne of cabbage or carrots.
