Recently, for one of my clients, I have been getting into the usage of Miso Paste. Miso Paste is a paste made out of fermented soybeans – it’s gluten free and vegan – but most importantly adds a great element of umami. Umami (one of the 5 tastes – sweet, salty, sour, bitter) – is a taste that kind of encompasses all flavors, and lets the eater experience the broadest spectrum of flavors.
I have been playing around with the usage of Miso with my typical Asian ingredients of Soy Sauce, Mirin, ginger, etc – and came up with this super simple Chicken dish which I have fallen in love with!
I serve this with my version of Fried Rice – made with Brown Rice – and loaded with flavor (again, another easy take-out dish made at home!)
In my recipe I call for 3 cups of cooked brown rice....for great brown rice everytime:
-Add 1 cup of brown rice in a pot with 2 1/2 cups of water -- bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and let cook for 45 minutes. Pull off the heat, then fluff with a fork. This will yield about 3 cups of cooked Brown Rice.
