Meso hot MISO soup

I want to share an idea from Pema Chodron’s book, Taking the leap.  She spoke about the lifespan of one particular emotion is one and a half (yes 1.5) minutes. After that, we have to revive the emotion and get it going again.  We feed emotions with our internal chatter usually about how we are ‘not to blame’ for our misery. For some, it’s a lot easier to blame someone else than ourselves. Just some food for thought today my friends! If you’re looking for a quick soup, give this recipe a try.

Miso Soup:

4 cups of clean water

1 cup chopped mushrooms (favorite is shitake)

1 cup kale (favorite is dino kale)

1/2 cup any seaweed (favorite is hijiki)

3-5 T miso (favorite South River Miso Co. any flavor)

2-3 cloves of garlic minced

3 T sesame oil/ toasted chili sesame oil

1 chopped green onions

optional smoked chili peppers

Heat up the garlic, kale and mushrooms with a little oil. Then add the water. Soak the seaweed in a little water to soften, drain, and set aside.  Once the water is semi-hot, take a large spoonful out and place in a small bowl to mix with the miso. Remove pot from the heat and stir in miso. Add the green onions and oil.
