So, it's possible I got a little carried away with the Indian food. Things came to a head Friday night, when we had a friend over for dinner. I couldn't even imagine making anything but Indian, since I have been swimming in those waters. The meal was delicious, but I stood up from the table and told Michael "I don't think I need to eat again for a week or two." It's been three days, and still all I want is brat food. My tummy needs comfort, and I just want to sit around and eat grits all day.
One can only eat so many grits (theoretically), so I have been on a hunt for other bland, bland, yummy-but-bland options. I have had lots bananas and kefir, pushed the limits a bit with panzanella and then fig and roquefort flat bread. Today I decided that miso soup was in order. Not only have I never made miso soup, I've never really liked it that much. It's warm and brothy, but I could never understand why it was so intentionally bland. Today I understood, but in the end, I couldn't resist propping it up a bit.
I started with the recipe on the lid.
I used fresh mushrooms in place of the carrot/cabbage. I also used a bit more miso and 1/2 cube of tofu.
Delicious and simple! I'm exciting to really dress this up next time!
