Tamarind Miso Soup

The addition of sour tamarind paste here creates a sassy, slightly tangy, miso soup that can become the perfect lunch with baked tofu cubes and crispy baguette slices on the side. Alternatively, you can gently clean and reconstitute 2 dried shiitake mushrooms in 1⁄3 cup (80 ml) water, mince them, and add them while sautéing the vegetables in this dish. This’ll do the trick just fine. Be sure to keep the soaking water and replace the same quantity of water needed in this recipe with it. Don’t you just love it when there is no waste?
