These baked apples will not leave you indifferent because they mix flavours and textures that you would never imagine could go together: apples with miso? really? Yes! What’s more, by baking to these apples we make them more yang, more energetic and suitable when you are tired or weak.
This recipe is very autumn-like because we incorporate the spicy flavour which, according to Classical Chinese medicine, helps to slow down that strong “inward” tendency in which body fluids tend to flow more towards the inner part of the body. The spicy flavour, with its more expansive tendency, helps this inward tendency to take place more slowly and gradually.
We also incorporate fibre, protein and fat, which will help the sweetness of the apples not to have such a strong impact on blood sugar levels. Enjoy!
