Raw Miso Soup
Even with just a few ingredients, this soup has such an intense, rich flavor.
2 tablespoons soybean miso paste
2 tablespoons nama shoyu
2 cups water
handful of enoki mushrooms
4 grape tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
1 stalk lemongrass, sliced into ½ inch pieces
small knob of ginger, peeled and sliced into four thick slices
1 red chili, seeded and sliced thin
handful of wakame seaweed
handful of garlic cress
1. Divide all assembly ingredients between four small bowls.
2. Using a thermometer, heat water in a pan over medium heat to around 100°F. Add in the miso and mix until dissolved. Add nama shoyu. Mix.
3. Pour soup into each bowl, garnish with more cress if desired and serve immediately.

Admittedly kitschy, but so delicious. Crab and avocado is a wonderful combination, a bit luxurious but worth it for a special meal. Marie Rose Sauce (sometimes called ‘Mary Rose’), very similar to Russian dressing, is said to have Irish origins.
