Unfortunately I have no camera this week. Pictures are to follow.
This recipe is from the Milf Diet by Jessica Porter
2 Dried shittake mushrooms
1 Cup warm spring or filtered water
4 Cups spring or filtered water (or homemade vegetable stock)
2 Tsp wakame flakes
One 1-inch piece daikon, thinly sliced into half moons
4 Tsp barley miso, aged at least 2 years
1 Scallion, thinly sliced
Soak the shittake mushrooms in the warm water for 10 minutes. Drain and reserve the soaking liquid. Remove and discard the tough stems of the shittakes and slice the caps into thin strips. In a saucepan, bring the 4 Cups water, the wakame, the shittakes, and the soaking liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add daikon and simmer for 3 more minutes. Remove about 1/4 cup of the stock and add the miso to it. Using a suribachi and surikogi (Japanese morter and pestle) or a cup and spoon, puree the miso until it is smoothly integrated into the stock. Pour the miso liquid back into the soup. Simmer over very low heat for 3 more minutes. Do not let the seasoned soup come to a boil – boiling will overcook the live enzymes. Serve in individual bowls and garnish with the sliced scallion.0
