  • Miso Healthy Stew

    This recipe was a happy accident. I wanted to make a Lentil, Kale, Quinoa stew, which I made recently and loved, but I didn’t have the chopped tomatoes that I thought I had. For the past two months I have been kind of challenging myself to use up food from the pantry where there are large sacks of rye kernel, lentils, quinoa, spices, buckwheat flour, etc. This stuff is mostly left over from when we closed the Abokichi sandwich shop and café. We like the miso soup version of this recipe even better than the original tomato. I would happily make this over and over again. This is not a Japanese dish and yet the miso flavour works so well.
