Miso Soup (serves four)


* 2 1/4 cups water
* 2 ounces firm tofu, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
* 1 tablespoon light miso paste
* 2 teaspoons barley miso paste
* 1/2 cup fresh spinach, washed and chopped
* 1 green onion, thinly sliced


1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Ladle out about 1/2 cup of the boiling water, and reserve. Add tofu. Reduce the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add spinach or bok choy; simmer about 1 to 2 minutes, or until the greens are tender. Remove soup from heat.
2. Blend white miso and barley miso into reserved hot water. Stir into soup. Ladle into bowls, and garnish with scallion. Serve immediately.

Chicken Katsu (which is Japanese fried chicken)
(Serves four)


* 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
* salt and pepper to taste
* 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1 cup panko bread crumbs
* 1 cup oil for frying, or as needed


1. Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Place the flour, egg and panko crumbs into separate shallow dishes. Coat the chicken breasts in flour, shaking off any excess. Dip them into the egg, and then press into the panko crumbs until well coated on both sides.
2. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken in the hot oil, and cook 3 or 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
