As part of my attempt, I made some Miso Soup for lunch today. I've been feeling it lately and since today isn't quite as hot as it has been over the past week, I turned on my oven. During the day. I know, crazy, right?
So, I found these "miso soup" packets at the grocery store the other day and immediately stepped away from the because of the sodium content. WOW. Craziness! It was funny because that same day, a friend of mine was talking about how she had just made miso soup using a miso paste that she found at Wegmans in a refrigerated aisle.
So here's what you do... if you're me, you follow the directions on the tub.
|Saute onions in a T. of EVOO.|
|Add some sort of veggie... I added celery because I'm trying to get rid of it.|
Celery is NOT my friend.
|Add 2 cups of water or broth. |
I used veggie broth, again, because I had it. Water is easier.
|Miso Paste! Weird! It comes in a tub like sour cream.|
|Simmer it up some more after adding miso paste to taste.|
I think my first attempt was okay. The next time I make it, I think I'll add less onion than it suggested and probably not put in celery. I also added in some tofu because it made me think of sushi restaurants I've been to where the miso soup is amazing. I see lots of potential here.
I also made some little English muffin pizzas for my little one... okay, okay, and maybe for me, too.
|They were a hit! ;-)|
Have you ever made your own miso soup? What do you like to put in it?
