So I just finished writing a whole post about my sedated “woo-wee” grocery shopping mishaps and then Live writer decided to shut down and erase it.
THEREFORE… I will give you the brief version. Not the same, but still good enough, eh?
Finally got out for some fresh air back at home in Austin… YEA!
Allergies beat poking and piercing any day. I’d rather be snotty and sneezing outside than in a bed gown. LOL!
Stay with me, changing subjects and back tracking. Still going with my SUMMARY.
So, still half way sedated (aka “woo-wee”) on Tuesday , the hubs dropped me off at the store to pick up some recovery food. I was craving slurpy slobbery noodles.
I usually go for miso paste and brown rice noodles with broth. Instead, my half way there mind grabbed MEXI cheddar. Hmmm, MEXI cheddar is not quite the same as MISO paste.
Didn’t realize this till I got home and started making the noodles.
Uhhhh… what the? What is this orange MISO? NO SILLY LINDSAY, it’s MEXI Cheddar. You can’t make miso paste with mexi cheddar.
But you can still spoon it as an appetizer with some crackers. Um yes, delicious. It’s like spicy pudding by the spoonful. LOL!
Moving on, so where’s the MISO?
Crap, I gotta make my own. Or rather, I will “Cotterize” a recipe.
Uh, well, I am half way sedated and “woo-wee” so we will see how this turns out.
Ooooey Gooooey CRAZY HEAD DELICIOUSNESS!
The Miso Mishap
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- sesame oil
- rice vinegar
- balsamic glaze or thick dressing
- 1 tsp chopped garlic.
- 1 package brown rice Asian noodles
- 1 cup cooked shrimp
- 1 1/2 cup steamed peas
- 1/4 cup chopped green onion
- Boil your noodles, drain, rinse and set back in pan. Make sure you have a bit of oil or broth so that they don't get too sticky.
- Cotterized Miso Paste:
- combine your nutritional yeast, garlic, 1/2 tbsp to 1 tbsp of each : rice vinegar, sesame oil, and balsamic glaze. Blend until smooth. Add black pepper and sea salt if desired.
- Now combine your paste with your noodles. Mix well. Then add a bit of broth, your steamed shrimp, peas, onion and place on low heat. Cover to keep moisture in and wait about 10 minutes, or until everything hot and mixed well.
- Spoon up your noodle/shrimp mix into bowl and add broth on top. I also like to add red chili peppers or siriachi sauce.
