Zosui is a Japanese soup made with leftover cooked rice. This comforting dish is great when you want something nourishing but not too heavy.
1. To make Zosui: Heat sesame oil in pressure cooker over medium heat. Add leeks, and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until soft. Stir in squash, rice, edamame, broth, kombu, and 21/4 cups water.
2. Close pressure cooker, and bring up to high pressure. Cook 6 minutes.
3. Release pressure with quick-release button, or transfer pressure cooker to sink, and run cool water over rim to release pressure.
4. Remove kombu from Zosui. Thinly slice kombu strip; stir into soup. Ladle 1 cup soup into bowl, stir in miso, then stir miso mixture into soup pan.
5. To make Relish: Heat small saucepan over medium-high heat, and add grapeseed oil. Add ginger and green onions, and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until onions are wilted but still bright green. Remove from heat, and season with white pepper and salt, if desired. Stir 1 Tbs. Relish into each serving of Zosui.
