Medicine in a Bowl- Miso Soup

Makes 4 Servings

Prep- 15 minutes

8 cups water

6 large cloves garlic

5- 2” pieces of ginger

1 organic onions, sliced into crescent moons

½ bunch organic broccoli, cut into flowerets

2 cups mixed greens, (baby spinach, kale, swiss chard, bok choy etc.)

¼ cake organic tofu, cut into small pieces

2 large teaspoons of Miso per bowl (white or red miso) according to taste

1- ramen cake per person, cooked according to directions

1. Fill a large pot with 8 cups of filtered water. Add garlic and ginger, and bring to a boil.

2. Cook for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer, and add onions and tofu.

3. Meanwhile, bring another pot of water to a boil, and cook the ramen, 1 cake per person,

according to directions, about 3 minutes. Drain when ready, and run under cold water to stop

the cooking.

4. Add the broccoli and greens to the soup.

5. Put the 2 teaspoons of miso into each bowl, and add 1 ladle of broth only to the bowl.

Dissolve the miso into the broth in each bowl, then add another ladle of broth with the

6. Add the ramen to each bowl and you are ready to eat your bowl of delicious, medicinal soup!

When I’m feeling a cold coming on, I make the whole pot just for me, and that’s what I eat all day

long! I add the miso and noodles separately, because you do not want to boil the medicinal quality out

of the miso, and you don’t want the noodles to get overcooked!

Tofu Feta Cheese

Servings: 16 servings

Ingredients:

1 cup Miso (I used half mellow white miso and half red miso)

1/2  cup of organic dry white wine

1/4 cup of organic Mirin (I use Eden brand. Do not be fooled by the Kikoman brand

which calls itself mirin, but is really corn syrup!)

1 lb extra firm sprouted tofu

1/2 lemon

1 Tbs olive oil

1 t. Salt

Step-by- step Instructions:

Start with making a mixture of the miso, the white wine, and the Mirin. Slice the tofu into slices 1/2” thick, and lay out on a dish towel to absorb some of the water. Press down with another dish towel on top, to remove as much water as possible. Marinate the tofu in a glass pyrex casserole dish, big enough so that it can be a single layer. Cover the top and bottom with the miso marinade. Cover and refrigerate the tofu for 1 week.  Remove from the refrigerator and rinse each piece of tofu under running water to remove the marinade. Again, dry tofu on a clean dish towel, and return to the pyrex pan. Make a slurry of the oil, lemon and salt, and rub over each slice of tofu. Let sit for 24 hours in the fridge, before using.

Spicy Black Bean Soup

Ingredients:

2 cups Black Turtle Beans, soaked over night

11 cups water

14 cloves garlic

1 onions, chopped

1 red peppers, chopped

½ red onion, chopped small for garnish

¼ cup Cilantro, chopped fine plus 1 t. for garnish

2 t. cumin

1 t. chili powder

2 t. salt

juice of 1 lime

1 can Fire Roasted Tomatoes with Chilis

Frozen Corn- optional, if a chunky soup is desired

Directions:

Soak beans overnight. Drain beans, put in large stockpot with 11 cups of water and kombu, and cook for 2 hours (or longer, until soft) Or, you can use a pressure cooker and cook at high pressure for 30 min. Meanwhile, sauté onions in olive oil until translucent, then add garlic and peppers. When soft, add cumin, chili powder and salt, and sauté for a few minutes. Then add the canned tomatoes and chili peppers, and sauté another few minutes. ( I used already sautéed hot peppers that I had in my freezer from my garden. If you are using fresh jalapeño peppers, add them when adding the other peppers) When beans are soft, add veggies and juice of one lime to beans. Puree with either a handheld stick blender, directly into pot, or transfer to blender. Taste and adjust spices to your liking. Add ¼ cup cilantro. Add some water if soup is too thick. Add more salt, chili powder and cumin, if more spice is desired. Frozen corn can be added, if a chunky soup is desired.
