Just about time I came back to my vegan and vegetarian (I’m not) friends with a recipe they can create in Japan or back home!
Vegan Japanese Stew!
INGREDIENTS: For 6 people
-Soy beans: 2 cups
-Konbu/seaweed (dry): 20 cm
-Sato Imo/taro: 7~
-Mirin/sweet sake: 1 cup
-Soy sauce (of your choice): 90 cc/ml
Clean the sato imo/taro.
Peel the carrots.
Peel the sato imo/taro and clean under running cold water.
The soy beans should have been left to soak for a whole night before being boiled for 3 hours or until soft.
About time to slice those carrots!
Dice the carrots.
Drop the carrots and soy beans inside a large pot.
Break/cut the konbu/seaweed into large pieces.
Break again into small pieces. You will eat them!
Pour plenty of water.
Simmer over a small fire for 40 minutes.
Slice the sato imo/taro.
Cut in cubes.
Scoop out unwanted matters from the surface.
Add the cubed sato imo/taro.
Stir to mix.
Add mirin/sweet sake.
Add soy sauce.
Simmer until water disappears.
You are almost there!
It can be served both hot or at room temperature. Great in bento!
