As the holidays near ever-closer and and we seem to spend every spare minute digging our fingers into pie crust or our spoons into homemade cranberry sauce (yes, some taste testing is definitely in order!), healthy eating generally seems to fall by the wayside.  After all, who has time to throw together a veggie-full meal when there are cakes to be made and potatoes to be mashed?

Miso Ramen with Shrimp Recipe

Shrimp Miso Ramen

I love Japanese ramen and have been experimenting with ways to make the meal lighter by eliminating much of the sodium and adding teff noodles instead of ones traditionally made from white or buckwheat flour. Teff is a gluten-free grain used widely in Ethiopia to make injera, the sour flat bread served with every meal. Here I use white wine with the miso broth and add a good amount of spice and fresh corn to brighten the dish. This version calls for shrimp.

Traditional ramen broth takes hours and hours to make, but I’ve included a quick and easy way to make it at home.

Sometimes I find myself baking cupcakes when it should be dinnertime.  Then, all of a sudden it’s 7:30pm and my mind is weighing the pros and cons of eating an entire batch of swiss meringue butter cream while my stomach is begging for something (anything!) that doesn’t contain four sticks of butter.

It’s at times like these that you just have to compromise with yourself.  Go the sweet-and-salty route.  And I am not talking salted caramel here. Rather, smothering your favorite protein with a maple-miso glaze and then stir frying it with some broccoli and winter squash. Sweet and salty, healthy heaven in a bowlRead More

A rack of lamb is an investment, but one you will be happy you made.  The tender meat is encased in a savory miso crust, which pairs perfectly with the flavorful curry.

This dish is a combination of flavors from the east, taking its cues from Japanese ingredients and Southeast Asian curries.  Enjoy for a special weekend celebration, after all, you deserve a delicious meal.
