It's enough for 5 lbs chicken thighs.

Marinate overnight, then grill!

Orange Squash, and Ginger Soup

By: Lucy Waverman Serves 4 to 6/Marge CDN

This is a Japanese-inspired version of squash soup.
The inclusion of miso and sake give it a rich taste without using cream,
and cooking it with orange juice brings out the sweetness of the squash.
The wasabi cream offsets the sweetness, but it can be omitted.

2 tbsp (25 mL) olive oil
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) onion, chopped
4 cups (1 L) peeled and diced butternut squash
2 cups (500 mL) peeled and diced potatoes
1/2 cup (125 mL) fresh orange juice
1/4 cup (50 mL) sake
2 tbsp (25 mL) light miso
5 cups (1.25 L) chicken stock
2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped pickled ginger
1/2 tsp (2 mL) grated orange rind
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Wasabi Cream
1 tsp (5 mL) wasabi powder
1 tsp (5 mL) water
2 tbsp (25 mL) whipping cream

1. Heat oil in a pot on medium-high heat. Sauté onion until softened, about 2 minutes. Add squash and potatoes and sauté 1 minute longer.
2. Whisk together orange juice, sake and miso. Add to vegetables along with stock. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, or until vegetables are soft.
3. Add pickled ginger and orange rind and puree in a food processor or blender. Return to pot, season with salt and pepper.
4. Combine wasabi powder and water and stir to dissolve. Add whipping cream and stir until combined. Drizzle surface of each bowl of soup with about 1 tsp (5 mL) wasabi cream.

Char Siu (Barbecued Pork)/cheezz

3 tbl. soy sauce
1 tbl. soy paste (miso)
1 tbl. hoisin
2 tbl. dry sherry
2 tsp. sugar
1 tbl. tomato paste
1 tbl. oil (sesame oil is best)
1 pork tenderloin

Mix together all ingredients with tenderloin in a ziploc bag. Marinate at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days.
Line a baking pan with foil and place a cooling rack inside. Spray rack with oil spray and put marinated tenderloin in center. Put into a cold oven and turn it to 450 deg. Bake 20 minutes. Turn oven down to 375 deg. and bake another 20 minutes. Serve sliced, with oriental mustard powder that has been mixed with a little water to form a thin paste, for dipping.
