Insomnia miso

It’s late, and I’m up and cooking for some reason. I made miso soup. It came out decent. It’s dark brown and turbid and I used up a bunch of things that have been hanging the cupboard around forever.

In a big pot:

  • 8 cups cold water
  • half cup miso paste (red)
  • half of a 25g bag dried mushrooms
  • 3 sheets nori, shredded
  • 1 brick tofu, diced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

Get it hot, but not boiling. The mushrooms may need a soak first, mine were like jerky (but still good). Dashi would surely be better than fish sauce, but this is what I had on hand. The extra cloudiness came from lots of nori and mushroom dust I threw in — it’s country-style, I guess.
