Holy Macaroni, Batman!  Last night, I cooked a fantastic dinner for the House of Awesome.  Here’s what the menu consisted of:

  • Miso Soup
  • Tofu Tempura & Broccoli Tempura
  • Summer Rolls with Garlic Ginger Sauce

Sarey’s Miso Soup

You know, I have a set just like this. In storage.

serves 15, easily

  • 2 1/2 gallons of water
  • 5 or more cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 3-4 T fresh ginger, diced
  • 1/4 c or more crumbled seaweed
  • 1 1/2-2 1/2 lbs extra firm tofu, diced in tiny cubes (1 cm square)
  • 1 T salt
  • 2 t black pepper
  • 1 t crushed red pepper

Boil all of this for about a half hour.  (It can hang out longer, if you’re doing other things.)  Turn down heat to keep warm, but lower than a simmer.  Then add a generous cup of miso and stir-stir-stir, and serve!

So good. So amazing. So yummy. So many compliments. So many raw vegetables it’s crazy!
