Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

extra virgin olive oil
1 sweet onion, thin half moon slices
soy sauce
1/4 cup mirin or white wine
3 cups spring or filtered water
4 cups cooked black turtle beans
3 teaspoons brown rice miso
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
small handful fresh flatleaf parsley, minced, for garnish



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.
