Nateur Cooking With Mia Rigden
Ultimately, what you put in your body, shows up on your face. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite wellness experts to share their go-to recipe for glowing skin.
Name: Mia Rigden
Job Description: Holistic Nutritionist
Eat this for: Gut and skin health.
Where do you find recipe inspo? I was classically trained at the French Culinary Institute, and I love finding ways to make my favorite dishes (perhaps from a restaurant or travels) more nutrient-dense.
Top 3 Instagram accounts for inspiration: I always want all the food that @sophia_roe, @localhaven, and @oliviamuniak post.
Dream dinner guest to cook for: Right now, I’d love to have all my best girlfriends in the same room and cook for them.
Favorite skin food ingredient: Miso is full of wonderful probiotics that help populate and maintain a healthy microbiome. The gut/skin connection is immense. While we can’t necessarily see what’s going on in our gut, it is often reflected through rashes, bumps, acne, dry, oily, or itchy skin.
Must-have cookbook: Any and everything Ottolenghi.
Go-to quick, healthy meal: A frittata! Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, entertaining, or meal prep.
Skincare mantra: If you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your face!
MISO CAESAR DRESSING
- 1 tbsp white miso
- 2 tsp dijon mustard
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp water
- juice of ½ lemon
- 1/2 tsp garlic, finely minced
Whisk together miso, dijon mustard, lemon juice, water, and minced garlic until fully incorporated. Then slowly add in olive oil while continuously whisking to emulsify. You could alternatively double the recipe and add all ingredients to a blender or food processor. Store in the fridge for up to one week. You can loosen with some water (1/2 tbsp at a time), as it will thicken slightly as it sets.
Tastes great on crunchy romaine with toasted walnuts, butter lettuce, kale, or grilled radicchio.
