If you have pork, then just add leftover vegetables into the soup. It's an easy, yummy nutritious soup!

Ingredients: 4+ servings

Thinly sliced pork
250 g
Potatoes
2
Carrot
1
Daikon radish
8 cm
Japanese leek
1
Aburaage
1/2
Sesame oil
1 tablespoon
Dashi stock
4+ cups
Miso

Steps

1. Cut the pork and vegetables into bite sizes. Quarter the sliced daikon, carrot and potato, cut the Japanese leek diagonally, and cut the aburaage into rectangular slices.
2. Heat a pot with sesame oil and cook the pork. When the pork has changed colour, add the vegetables, starting from the ones that take longer to cook. Saute for 3 minutes, then add the dashi stock.
3. Skim the scum on the surface and simmer for 15 minutes until the vegetables are cooked through. Add the miso dissolved in a little dashi stock.
4. Serve in a soup bowl. Sprinkle with chopped scallions or shichimi spice.
