I would not recommend adding cabbage at the same time as carrots. If you cook cabbage for 30 minutes it will become a slimy mush. Just add latter. It only needs 5-7 minutes.
Also places like Whole Foods (at least in the past) had kosher miso paste. Reply

scallions the reason you might think that scallions are not kosher is that there is a possibility that there are tiny bugs inside the tubes especially in the greener part. If you slice open each layer and wash it well it is probably ok. Or you could buy the scallions with a hechsher (kosher supervision) but they are very expensive. Reply

scallions scallions are also known as "green onions" - they grow from the ground, so there is no reason they would not be kosher. perhaps you are thinking of another food? Reply
