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. Read More
