*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.

Notes: This is a real home-style Japanese stew. Daikon, also called Japanese white radish, has the sharp taste and crisp texture of radish, but it can grow to be more than one foot long. Look for it at Asian markets.
Mirin is a sweet rice wine common in Japanese kitchens; if it's unavailable, substitute sweet sherry.
