When I’m in a time crunch, I love to make… miso soup with tofu, greens, and udon! Takes 15 minutes from start to finish with minimal clean up and lots of umami flavor.

Foods I must have in my home are… coffee, frozen veggies, & hot sauce (preferably Yellowbird).

My favorite food for winter is… French onion soup with LOTS of Gruyère cheese and a crusty piece of bread.
