Mega Miso

The Chef: Elizabeth

The Menu: Miso soup, with a few delicious additions. First, Elizabeth sautéed up some fresh kale with onions and garlic, then added steamed acorn squash and cubed tofu to the mix. A little soy sauce, a little sesame oil, oh, and maybe a little miso, and we had ourselves a soup. Continuing with the simple theme, a salad of spinach, tomatoes, and avocado served as a side. Maybe there was one more thing on the table, even though it didn't make it onto the plate here, and maybe that thing was a round of Dr. Cow Cheese. Our delightful Distribution Manager, Mrs. Katie Paul, is in the office with us this week, and claimed to never have tried Dr. Cow before. Whether or not that was the case, give us pretty much any excuse to bust out a tangy round, and we will. And we'll be stoked about it.

The Goods: Even though the sun was bright and warm outside it seems that a couple of our staffers have started to get the first of the fall colds, which meant that soup was the only option for lunch. Really, as much as we all love summer, it's always a long wait before soup season starts, and it's nice to be able to break the rules and make up a steaming pot a little bit early.
