TIP *Use either medium or long-grain brown rice in this recipes. If you dont have brown rice, or the time it takes to prepare it, use white rice, but cook in step 2 for only 15-20 minutes. LEAFY GREENS: Kale can stand in for collard greens in most recipes. Other dark leafy greens may be substituted but some do not hold up as well to prolonged cooking. Substitute chard or spinach (not baby spinach) and adjust cooking time. *MISO (Pronounced MEE-soh) is a highly nutritious fermented soybean paste with a creamy consistency. It is used extensively in Japanese cuisine to thicken and season dishes. The lighter miso is used in delicate soups, sauces, and marinades, while the darker version is used in heartier dishes. It is available in Asian markets as well as most natural foods stores.
