|dashi broth, miso, scallions, a touch of bonito and seaweed flakes|
I've spent a lot of time owning restaurants and learning about coffee and tea, sourcing beans, blending, learning to roast, grind and care for excellent cups of coffee. But in running I see coffee is one of the first items I need to swap out for a better work out. While so much has been written about its properties, one that I do not like is the negative effect on my heart rate and lungs. Part of that is the caffeine, part of it could be the sourcing, even organic have some pesticides considered organic. But now what to do instead.
So suddenly MISO comes to mind. Nothing exotic in combination. Just simple Miso Soup, a little dashi broth poured over and stirred into miso, diced shiitake mushroom, scallions, touch of chopped ginger. I skipped the tofu. A flash from the past is now a morning habit. Miso it is. The Vegetable Alchemist.
