Miso Happy!

The Chef: Melissa

The Menu: A trio of treats! First, yes, Melissa made us all so happy with an absolutely delicious miso soup featuring leeks, sweet potatoes, and green onions, all served in a perfectly salty broth. Next, a stellar serving of fried brown rice with bok choy, zucchini, onions, garlic, ginger, and spices made an excellent main course. And finally, a simple spinach salad with chopped almonds finished off the plate.

The Goods: Um, it's Friday. Everything is good. Delicious food, excellent company, and the promise of fun weekend times means that we're pretty darn stoked around the VNHQ today. Here's hoping everyone is just as excited!

that looks delicious but is it a balanced meal? What complementary item provides protein? I see no beans.

Thanks for commenting, KK. Our meal didn't have any beans, per se, though miso is made from fermented soy beans. We also had spinach, brown rice, and almonds, which are all great sources of protein, so this meal had more than enough. If you'd like to know more about the wonderful world of plant-based sources of protein, we recommend Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson's newest book The Face On Your Plate.
