I recently met the amazingly talented Susie Morrison of Gourmet Glow and gave her a jar of our NEW organic miso. She is about to graduate from Leith's School of Food and Wine, and I thought it might be fun for her to have a play....
Little did I know, she was about to cook up THIS STUNNING dish of miso beauty!! It puts a lot of my slap dash (homely?!) presentation to shame!
On this tasty plate is miso chicken, seaweed bon bons, citrus teriyaki and roasted kholrabi, and the green stuff is samphire and pea puree. I know!! While my book is about everyday simple cooking, if you really want to impress, I would go with Susie for her top tips! Susie has kindly provided her recipe for the below as well, if you are feeling brave!!
Thank you Susie! I can't wait to see what else you come up with!
You can read more of Susie's recipes on Healthy Living London, an amazing site of recipes and activities to enjoy around London.
