Step by Step Instructions
Place the garlic and ginger in a pan with the sesame oil and turn on medium heat until the pan starts to sizzle (approximately 3 minutes).
Add the kimchi and stir for 30 seconds.
Add the leek and 180 ml of water and stir lightly. Once done, add the mushrooms (cut into slices of about 3 cm).
Turn down the heat to a simmer and add sliced cabbage. Cover the pan and let simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the tofu, cut into squares of about 2x2x1 cm. Turn off the fire, add 1 tablespoon of miso gradually so that it melts its way into the stew. Add 1 teaspoon of black bean chili paste and taste. For richer flavor, add more miso (don’t worry, miso is great for you!)
Optional: Have with 100 grams of brown rice on the side for a fuller meal rich with complex power carbs.
