When I don't have dashi and don't want to dirty a pot I make this "lazy" zouni (mochi rice cake soup)!
Making dashi stock is a pain and I hate that you need to dirty a pot to use mentsuyu! Then I remembered my mom's ultimate lazy recipe.
This is the ultimate "lazy" recipe for zouni. There aren't any hints. Just eyeball the ingredients.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
