In addition to probiotics, miso is also a good source of antioxidants, manganese, copper, and zinc-all of which are important for healthy skin. And butternut squash is high in vitamin A, which is one of the top age-defying nutrients for skin.

1 lb. butternut squash, peeled and cut into bite-size chunks (2 cups)
1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
½ cup light coconut milk
¼ cup organic sweet white miso
1 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)

  1. Place squash in large, deep skillet.
  2. Whisk together broth, coconut milk, miso, ginger, and garlic in bowl. Pour over squash, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and braise 10-15 minutes,or until squash has softened and liquid has become thick and creamy, stirring occasionally.
