<i>Mizutaki</i>
  Mizutaki means water stew. Ingredients are commonly cooked in a kelp broth without other seasonings, then served with a Ponzu dipping sauce. It is popular to finish off the Mizutaki by adding rice to it, to make Zosui, a Japanese rice soup.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 6 cups water
  • 3" x 8" sheet kombu kelp (optional)

  • 1 lb. boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 lb. nappa cabbage, cut into 2-3" squares
  • 1 carrot, sliced into 1/4" thick slices
  • 5 oz. daikon radish, sliced
  • 1/2 pkg. tofu, cut into 1-1/2” small blocks
  • 6 stalks green onions, diagonally cut into 2-3" lengths
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, whole

Ponzu sauce for dipping (Ponzu can be replaced with equal amounts of soy sauce and lemon juice mixture)
