AVOCADO + RADISH SNACK

  • 2 ryvita crackers (crisp rye crackers, but you can use any tasty cracker or flatbread)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 radish, sliced as thin as you can
  • flakey smoked salt
  • black pepper

mush the avocado on the crackers, top with radish then sprinkle generously with salt and a few good cracks of black pepper.

SUPER QUICK MISO

ok so more of a small meal, but when you hunger as i do, it’s a snack. also if you’re getting sick or you’re hungover, it’s magic.

  • a tbsp oil
  • a 1/2 slice of medium firm tofu, cubed
  • 1 leaf of kale
  • 1 fat scallion
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 c. water
  • 3-4 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tsp black vinegar
  • 1 tsp braggs or tamari

heat oil in a pot, pat tofu dry and fry until browned. add garlic and ginger and stir for a minute then add water. scrape up any tofu bits from the bottom of the pot. add kale and white parts of the scallions and heat until just under boiling (and kale is softened). mix a scoop of the soup with the miso paste in a separate bowl until smooth then take the soup off the heat and add the miso. season with black vinegar and bragg’s and top with green bits of the scallions.
