4 cups cooked black turtle beans
3 teaspoons brown rice miso
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Instructions


Place a small amount of oil in a soup pot, with the onions and turn the heat to medium. As soon as the onions begin to sizzle, add a splash of soy sauce and saute 1-2 minutes.


Add mirin, water and black beans and bring to a boil, covered. Reduce heat to low and cook until beans are very soft, about


15 minutes.


Transfer soup, by ladles, into a food mill, chinois or food


processor and puree until smooth. Return to low heat. Remove a small


amount of hot broth and puree miso. Stir into soup and simmer, ncovered


for 3-4 minutes to activate the enzyme activity of the miso.


Just before serving, stir in balsamic vinegar. Serve soup garnished with fresh parsley.

Notes

For extra endurance try this soup, best for cold days but works well all year round when you need some extra strength such as getting over an illness.
