Oh deep fried tofu! Sssshh, don’t tell tofu-haters how good deep fried tofu is! I think we should keep it to ourselves. Deep frying changes the soft mushy texture of tofu to a crispy outer skin with a pillow soft inner. If you are drooling already, have a look at this deep fried tofu with a peanut sauce. Sensational.
This recipe takes some deep fried tofu and cooks it with sweet potatoes in a coconut green curry broth, and then serves it with noodles and coriander leaves. It is typically S. E. Asian, like the curries of Thailand and Malaysia. I also make it as one of my Miso Soup options, adding a little more broth to the ingredients. Miso Soup with Sweet Potato, Tofu and Noodles.

Miso has made its way back into our kitchen. A favourite of old, somehow it disappeared from our ingredients some time ago. But I adore soup made simply from dissolving a spoon of miso in hot water. Sip. Feel relaxed. Comforted. Rested.
There are dozens of different types of miso. Today we’re using Genmai. Genmai Miso is a mellow, sweet, golden miso paste of whole soybeans and brown rice which is traditionally aged in cedar kegs for up to 18 months. It is good for soups, sauces and slow cooked dishes, and is often referred to as Brown Miso. This is a version of the recipe that came with the miso – I have tinkered with it a little. It is an unusual one for me, as I usually just add sliced vegetables to miso dissolved in hot water. It is quick, easy and delicious, and sautes the vegetables briefly before adding to the soup.
Please remember to offer miso soup to your friends and family when they are overwrought, when they are having a hard time, when they are so tired they can no longer stand up, when they have a young kids or babies that won’t allow them to sleep, or when life throws enormous challenges at them. It is incredibly restorative.
