This is a recipe that is surprisingly good for how simple it is. Really. Make it and you will go, “Wow! I am so surprised. That was so simple.” It makes a great weeknight dinner and reheats well for lunch the next day.

I’m also a big fan of this recipe because I have only recently (within the last couple of years) discovered how wonderful miso is. I have a refrigerator with 3 tubs of miso in it right now: blond miso (which I used for this), red miso and barley miso. Miso, miso, miso!
