Food notes

I have several more types of miso. At some point I’ll do a summary, but I need to learn more and taste more. Great stuff, though. Latest is Kyoto Red, which is a low-sodium miso. I might make this recipe (link includes a whole handful of recipes):

Makes 1 cup
(33 calories/2 tablespoon servings)

4-6 teaspoons Cold Mountain Kyoto Red Miso
8 oz Tofu
2 tablespoons sesame oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Garnish with chopped green onions.

I also cooked a serving of udon noodles this morning, then chilled them in cold water, drained, added some sesame oil, freshly grated ginger, salt, and pepper, and put it in the fridge in one of the silicone prep bowls I got for Christmas. I’m thinking of a chilled salad for lunch: the noodles, some tofu cubes, sliced scallion, a little wakame, a crushed clove of garlic, dressing of red miso and mirin (a tablespoon of each whisked together)…
