  • Hi, this looks delicious, how many does it serve as a main course? Do you have any suggestions of what to serve it with?

    Thanks! Will be making soon for some friends.

    • Hi Emi,
      This will make about four portions. I like to serve this dish with large salad, brown rice or quinoa. Enjoy 🙂

  • Awesome!! I’m not beget but my wife is Japanese. We like spicy so added red pepper flakes. So friggin ono, making it third time in two weeks!

    • Glad you and your wife are enjoying it so much 🙂 It’s a great recipe for a busy week, quick and easy!

  • Looks delicious and I absolutely will be trying this soon — the slow cooker seems to be the answer to having warm, home-cooked meals for work the next day without having to wake up extra early to prepare meals (I’m not a fan of re-heating food). But, can you please clarify? Your picture of ingredients shows red miso but on your list of ingredients, white miso listed. Does it at all matter?

    • Thanks for the comment 🙂 I agree a slow cooker is a must have for those busy days 😉 As for the miso… doesn’t matter which one you use – just your personal preference. Enjoy! BTW this dish is actually good cold too – so no need to reheat it.
