Alkalizing Daikon and Yam Soup

This simple, clean, four ingredient soup (5 if you count water!) is made of all alkalizing ingredients, depending on what charts you are looking at!  Many charts differ as foods change from acid to alkaline and vice versa once cooked and can also change once digested.  I’ve spent hours comparing acid and alkaline charts and these ingredients are pretty consistently on the alkaline side.

2 cups daikon aka lo bok cubed
2 cups yam cubed (they can be chopped bigger as the daikon takes longer to cook)
1-2 cloves garlic peeled
2 tablespoons non gmo miso paste
5 cups water

Bring water to a boil in medium pot. Add all ingredients except for miso. Bring back to a boil and let simmer for 30 minutes or until daikon is fully cooked. Stir in miso paste. Purée with hand immersion blender, add more water if too thick for your preference. Garnish with cilantro if desired.

Enjoy!
