Macrobiotic All-Purpose Stewed Daikon Radish Leaves and Dried Shiitake Mushrooms

These stewed daikon leaves are great in on rice, udon, spring rolls, or even pasta.
It's easy to make and convenient. I've even searched for daikon radish leaves to make this dish!

Ingredients: An easy-to-make amount

Daikon radish leaves
1 large radish's worth
Onion
A little less than one medium sized
Dried shiitake mushrooms
About 5 mushrooms
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
Water (together with the soaking water from the shiitake)
1 cup
Salt
1/4 teaspoon
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
Toasted white sesame seeds
2.5 tablespoons

Steps

1. Sauté the onions in sesame oil. Once they have become transparent...
2. add in the rehydrated and chopped shiitake mushrooms and daikon leaves, and mix! Add the salt. After bringing the water to a boil and the daikon leaves have wilted...
3. add the soy sauce, cover with a lid, and boil for 10-15 minutes.
4. Prepare the toasted white sesame while you wait (grinding to the right gives the sesame seeds a stronger "Yang" element). Add them to the frying pan from Step 3, and uncover to evaporate out the water. Season to taste, then it's done!
