Having just arrived home thinking I had plenty of time to post my entry into the May 2013 Virtual Vegan Potluck, I’ve realized that my timing is slightly off. So rather than having hours left to type up this post, I should actually have submitted it a few hours ago! A big shout out to Annie from An Unrefined Vegan for managing this affair!
Usually I share all-in-one rice cooker recipes. However for the Virtual Vegan Potluck, I wanted to share something that’s super simple to make and doesn’t require any special kitchen equipment. To ensure there’s a Japanese flavour to this recipe, I chose to make a miso soup.
Just looking at the entry before mine from posted on House Vegan, I’m happy to see a Miso Ramen recipe. And the entry following this one posted at On the Path to Zen also has a Japanese vibe with its Black Pepper Tofu dish.
|Virtual Vegan Potluck Recipe: Lentil and Kale Miso Soup||

- 5 Kale leaves
- 1 heaped table spoon of Miso paste
- Rinse the lentils.
- Add lentils to about 1 litre of water in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
- Chop up the kale.
- Put the miso paste into a bowl.
- Ladel out some water from the boiling lentils and pour into the bowl with the miso paste.
- Mix the miso paste and water together.
- Once the lentils have been boiling for 15 minutes, add the kale and boil for a further 10 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and pour the miso into the saucepan.
