Recipe from Our Chocolate Book!

The chocolate cookbook by Matt Ruscigno and myself is quite good and the recipes are fabulous!
I have to say, you should buy it
Available here...
among other places.

Here's a recipe from it to warm you up as it (hopefully) begins to get chilly out there.
A nice, robust CACAO MISO SOUP!!

5 C. mushroom or vegetable broth
1/3 to 1/2 C. raw cacao powder (the red color this adds is pretty luxurious)
1 tsp. minced red chili
1 tsp. grated ginger
1 minced garlic clove
1/4 C. miso paste (red is great, use more or less as desired)
8 oz. firm tofu, cut into small cubes
1/2 C. sliced scallions
1 or 2 tsp. agave or other coconut sugar (if you like)
lemon wedges

Bring the broth, cacao powder, chile, ginger and garlic to a simmer in a large pot.
Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the miso, combining well.
Add tofu and scallions and simmer for 3-4 more minutes. Add sweeteneer if you are using it.
Remove from heat. Serve with lemon.
