Larry's Miso Soup
Larry put Japanese miso powder on his Christmas wish list; he especially wanted powder since paste can go bad if you don't use it up quickly. Good thing, since we just opened the jar today, 5 months later! He made up a quick recipe using our roasted seaweed snacks, some silken tofu in the pantry, and chives from our garden. It was super fast and delicious.
1 T miso powder (we like marukome from Japan)
1 roasted seaweed, cut up
1/4 cup tofu
1 T chives, chopped
1.5 C hot water
Put the miso powder, seaweed, tofu, and chives in a bowl. Put water in a kettle and heat it up. Pour hot water in bowl. Stir and serve. Larry says one usually eats it by slurping the side of the bowl, stirring as you slurp! (A handy lesson from living in Japan :)
