   Prepare the vegetables.  Put the first four vegetables
   in a pot with the stock & bring to a boil.  Cook over
   medium heat for 15 minutes. Add the green pepper
   during the last two minutes.  Drain & reserve the
   stock. Heat the oil in a wok over high heat.  When
   very hot, add the ginger & miso & stir-fry for a
   couple of seconds.  Dissolve the cornstarch in 1 c of
   the leftover stock & add it to the wok with the salt,
   pepper, soy sauce & cooked vegetables.  Cook, stirring
   constantly, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the liquid
   thickens.  Place in a serving dish & sprinkle with
   green onion before serving. LEFT OVER STOCK: Put left
   over stock in a soup pot over medium heat & bring to a
   boil.  Add some sliced pressed tofu (1/2 lb should do)
   & add salt & pepper.  Sprinkle in some green onions &
   cilantro leaves.
