Soybean paste soup
I made too much of this yesterday. The recipe calls for “soup tofu” but I only had silken. In this picture you see my dirty stove and Faberware bamboo chopping board that is a bitch to clean because it’s bigger than the sink.
Cooking tip of the day (which is actually yesterday’s but I was late for work and didn’t have time to blog): Invisible ingredients. Many times I have found myself saying to myself, “I swear I put spinach in this dish.” and “What is this? ‘Look-for-the-squid stir fry?'” Spinach shrivels, squid shrinks. Here’s a recipe for
1 spinach leaf, 1 tsp minced squid.
Boil together in a saucepan with 2 tbsp water.
After 30 seconds everything will disappear.
Store the pan away.
