Miso-Adzuki Stew

Serves 6

Small, dark red adzuki beans have a sweet, nutty flavor and are often used in Asian desserts. Here, they’re flavored with miso and shiitake mushrooms for a satisfying, protein-packed stew.
  • 1 cup dried adzuki beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 bunches green onions, white and green parts chopped separately, divided
  • ½ cup dried shiitake mushrooms, crumbled
  • ¾ lb. small red potatoes, quartered (2 cups)
  • 1½–2 Tbs. miso paste

1. Soak adzuki beans in 4 cups cold water 5 hours, or overnight. Drain, and reserve soaking liquid.
2. Coat large saucepan or Dutch oven with cooking spray, and heat over medium-low heat. Add white parts of green onions, sprinkle with salt, and cover. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until onions are soft. Add shiitake mushrooms and adzuki beans. Add enough water to soaking liquid to make 4 cups, and stir into bean mixture. Cover, and bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 45 minutes, or until beans are beginning to be tender, adding a little water if necessary. Fold in potatoes, cover, and cook 15 minutes more, or until potatoes are tender and beans are soft, but not mushy.
4. Ladle 1 cup broth from bean mixture into measuring cup. Stir in miso paste with fork until dissolved. Stir miso mixture into bean mixture, and simmer 2 to 3 minutes more, or until heated through. Sprinkle with chopped green parts of green onions before serving.

Added Dino Kale shredded and used white miso- definitely will make again!

I was pleasantly surprised by this. It's a very decent, different meal to add into the rotation. Love the use of miso - it makes the dish. I used white miso paste and I'm glad I did, I think red would have been really intense with these ingredients. A colorful vegetable would be a nice addition next time, maybe a couple chopped carrots or green beans to lighten it up a bit.
