Instructions

  1. Make the fruit salad first so that the flavors have time to meld. In a bowl large enough to hold the fruit, whisk together lime juice and vanilla.
  2. Gently stir in the fruit to cover well with the liquid a few times while cooking soup.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil to medium/high.
  4. Cook the ground chicken breast.
  5. Cut the tofu into cubes.
  6. Slice the scallions diagonally.
  7. In a saucepan, heat vegetable stock for 3-4 minutes, gently dissolve the miso in the soup and add some pepper.
  8. Add the tofu and chicken.
  9. Heat gently, taking care that the stock doesn’t come to a boil.
  10. Stir in scallions and sesame oil just before serving.
  11. Enjoy fruit salad for dessert.
