I enjoyed trying something new, but it needed more flavor. I should've added more seasonings.

Discrepancy with Tablespoons and teaspoons in Ingredients and Directions for the miso, chili and ginger. I used Tablespoons as per Directions and it came out well, maybe a little hot for my taste so I'll scale back next time. I'll also use a larger container. I heated mine further after adding the hot water and I added the spinach in fresh. Overall, a very tasty and convenient pre-prep meal. I'd like to add cooked shrimp to it to make it a bit more filling.

This was so delicious! The only changes I made was to use baby bella mushrooms and a little less spice than it called for. Yum!
