Eve is right…

…miso does make everything better.  Tonight’s exhibit:

Barley risotto perked up with miso

Barley risotto perked up with miso

I make variations of this dish often (I too am a lover of barley).  It’s basically a risotto with barley substituted for rice, though I do sometimes use brown or wild rice.  Whatever carb base I choose, I usually throw in chicken and frozen spinach, and whatever other veggies I have in the fridge.  I season with ginger, garlic, cumin, and black pepper.  Tonight I added mushrooms that weren’t going to last another 24 hours, and mixed a spoonful of miso in with the chicken as I browned it.  Delish.  And healthy.  I’m looking forward to eating the leftovers tomorrow.

But while Eve may be right about all things miso, I’m spectacularly unconvinced about garlic pasta soup.

  2. don’t knock what you don’t know — garlic pasta soup is sublime. i’ll even make it for you; and by “i” i mean “eve”.

  3. I said “unconvinced”…I’m open to being persuaded. Must be the cheapest meal ever!
