|Miso broth and a poached egg over seasoned rice.|
I cooked 1/3 of a cup of rice with 2/3 a cup of water. When the rice was finished cooking (about 10 minutes) I sprinkled in some soy sauce.
Then I made a simple broth with miso - (1 cup of water simmered with 1 Tbsp. of miso).
|Mmmm, miso broth!|
How do you eat this? With lots and lots of these:
This is my usual process:
First I break up the egg and mix it with the rice.
Then I take a strip of nori and dip it into the miso.
|Everyone into the pool.|
|Take it out when it becomes pliable - this takes about 3 seconds.|
|Lay the nori over the rice/egg mixture.|
|Place your chopsticks on either end of the nori.|
|Pinch the nori together, scooping up a bit of the rice and egg.|
|And bring that little nugget of deliciousness straight to your mouth.|
I was horrified when I realized that I only had 10 pieces of nori left!!! This led to me digging around the cupboards for more but all I ended up with was this:
|Two containers of nori strips.|
|Both were empty:-((|
Which made me realize 2 things:
1) I need more nori strips
2) I eat an enormous amount of seaweed
At this point, I am guessing a good 30% of my body is made up of kelp. I am hoping that this is a good thing.
The dogs are getting an extra special treat later today AND I am going to try my hand at cooking something I have never cooked before.
