YAY MISO MAY!
My kids are really excited about this! Their favorite time of day to have miso is when they get home for school.
Let’s start of with the classic. This recipe is by one of my favorite cooks xo
Basic Miso Soup– by Aveline Kushi
1 3-inch piece dried wakame
1 Cup thinly sliced onions
1 Quart spring or filtered water
11/4-11/2 Tbsp miso
Chopped scallions, parsley,ginger or watercress for garnish
Rinse the wakame in cold water for 3-5 minutes and slice it into 1/2 inch pieces. Put wakame and onions in a pot and add water. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for 10-20 minutes, or until tender. Reduce the heat to very low but not boiling or bubbling. Put the miso in a bowl or suribachi. Add 1/4 cup of the broth from the pot and puree until miso is completely dissolved in the liquid. Add the pureed miso to the soup. Simmer for 3-5 minutes and serve. Garnish with scallions, parsley, ginger or watercress.
