Dinner at Home

Miso Soup
A great weeknight starter, but it will only hold up for a day or two in the fridge before the seaweed begins to disintegrate and make the soup appear a bit unappetizing.

-8 cups water
-5 tb miso
-1 tb fish sauce
-1 block silken tofu, diced
-3 scallions, thinly sliced
-2 sheets nori, cut in small squares

Bring the water to a boil and whisk in the miso. Add everything else and take off the heat.

Whole Baked Trout and Roasted Asparagus
A simple, hands off, super-healthy weeknight dinner.

-2 whole trouts, cavities seasoned with salt, pepper and slices of lemon

Bake on 400 for 10 minutes, or until flesh flakes.

-1 lb asparagus, trimmed
-salt and pepper to taste
-a touch of olive oil

Season asparagus with salt and pepper, toss with a bit of olive oil and roast on 375 on a cookie sheet for about 20 minutes, or until sweet smelling and slightly browned. Turn occasionally.
