This recipe from The Kind Diet, a spin on Black Soybean and Kabocha Squash stew, was super, super sweet. My fault since I left out the 2 cups of tomatoes it called for. Those tomatoes would have cut the sweetness. I just was tired of tomatoes in my soup.
Even with tomatoes though it would have been sweet. One cup of [expensive] mirin made sure of that.
I'm thinking of draining and rinsing the remaining squash and beans and eating them like that.
