Kale Miso Soup

IMG_8227We ordered in (I know, the horror)! Well, semi ordered in. I picked up some sushi on the way home the other night – hey, it was late & I was tired! However, I still managed to throw something together in less then 10minutes that went perfectly with our takeout! A delicious miso soup!

Here’s the quick recipe…

  1. Bring 5C of water to a boil
  2. Once boiling add in 2 thinly sliced scallions (white parts & all), 2t freshly grated ginger & 1 garlic clove thinly sliced* – let simmer for 10minutes
  3. After 10 minutes stir in 3-4T yellow miso paste (make sure it dissolves), then add in 1C of chopped kale, 1C of cubed tofu (~1/2 a block)  & 2t Braggs amino acid
  4. Let it cook for a final 2 minutes then remove from heat

Serve piping hot & enjoy slurping on this tasty soup!

* typically I use jarred minced ginger & garlic but for this dish I recommend using the real deal

  • Clean 1lb sea bass with paper towel soaked in sake cooking wine

  • Once mixture is blended well lay fish skin side up

TASTES LIKE BUTTER, this fish seriously tasted like butter! Have you ever ordered miso glazed sea bass from a restaurant? If you have then you know what I am talking about & if you have never, then get on the band wagon & try it out! Such a quick prep & super easy to put together for a meal. I will be serving this at our next dinner party for sure!
