Today i tweaked Alicia's black soy bean and Kabocha squash soup recipe 1. Left out the beans for today 2. Haven't been able to get my hands on any Mirin yet, used a dash of white cooking wine.Anyway, it was delicious! It was like a stew, I added some brown rice, great meal! plenty leftovers! i was unbelievably happy. The book has so much awesome stuff, and the Superhero recipes are sometimes more appealing than the Vegan. Simple, Yum.
