Feel Better Miso
4 tablespoons oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
6-8 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
3-4" piece fresh ginger, grated
4 cups water
1 teaspoon cumin
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 dried shiitake mushrooms
1 1/2 cups green peas
1 1/2 cups broccoli
4 tablespoons miso paste, divided
1. Heat the oil and saute the onions about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and saute about 2-3 more minutes over low heat. Add water and turn heat to medium.
2. Add ginger, cumin, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Add mushrooms, and simmer covered for 5 minutes to bring out the juices of the ginger and garlic and good stuff.
3. Add the broccoli and peas, and simmer until veggies are done to your liking, about 5-8 minutes.
4. Scoop some of the broth into a bowl and dissolve 1 tablespoon miso per serving into the broth, and mix.
I like to make a big pot and keep it in the fridge and reheat as needed. It's easy; all you have to do is add the miso, and it keeps well. You can serve over rice or if you want some extra protein, and sprinkle some crushed peanuts on top.It really gives your immune system a kick!
