Be sure to spread just a very thin layer of miso paste across the salmon. Too much will overpower the clean flavor of the fish. What you want instead is a rich, salty crust to the salmon. We prefer a lighter white miso, but a darker paste will work just as well.

This classic Japanese soup with miso paste and shiitake mushrooms is eaten any time of day. But if you're not a miso-in-the-morning kind of person, it is a healthy light lunch or part of a filling and umami-filled dinner.

The richness of the avocado dressing is cut by the salty and slightly spicy pork burgers. Add more chipotle sauce if you want a spicier burger. We don't mention it here but sliced carrots make also make a great garnish.

Lemon juice, garlic and fresh parsley team up to complement the creamy, starchy white beans in this simple salad. Just about any other bean would work here too.

The thin stream of egg drizzled into the hot broth is so pretty, and develops a wonderful silken texture.  You can thinly slice the spinach like the basil to form a more even distribution of green. Parmesan adds that distinctly Italian flavor.

A caponata is a Sicilian relish made of chopped fried vegetables, usually eggplant and peppers, mixed with olives or capers and oil. We roasted these to make the dish a bit lighter but no less tasty.

This is a very simple dressing with a Japanese twist.  It works well on salads, or as a marinade for fish or meat, and is best with a smooth miso unless you prefer bits of salty soybeans spicing up your dressing.
