Miso Soup

This is a take off from a recipe I found in the newspaper and I made it my way.

I am a miso soup novice and this is my first try.

Since I do nothing without garlic and onion this is it.

One tablespoon of canola oil

One very large diced onion

Two inch piece of peeled and fine diced fresh ginger

6 cloves diced garlic

6 cups water

4 teaspoons mild miso paste

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons lime juice

One cup sugar snap peas or pea pods

6 cups thinly sliced bok choy

One cup thin sliced carrots

Chopped scallions

optional add ins:

sliced mushrooms

hot peppers

basil

tofu

rice noodles

Heat the oil and add the onion, ginger and garlic

Cook till the onions are soft but not brown

Add the water and bring to a boil for five minutes

Stir in the miso paste and simmer for ten minutes

Add the soy sauce and lime juice

Make sure the broth is seasoned to your liking now so adjust the soy sauce and miso.

Add the carrots, bok choy and sugar snaps

Do not boil again just let it simmer for ten minutes

The sugar snaps should still be crunchy

I am going to double the broth next time and freeze a container without the vegetables.
