Cut the leaves off of the turnip, and thickly peel the turnip as you would an apple. The point is to thickly peel with a knife without using a peeler!
Cut into about 1 cm sliced vertically after peeling.
Chop into a dice. This time, I had 450 g of turnip with the skin peeled off.
Add the turnip and ○ to a pot and turn on the heat. Cover with a lid after bringing to a boil, and boil over low medium heat for about 7 minutes.
During that time, cut the imitation crab in half and tear. Finely chop up the turnip leaves as well.
After boiling for 7 minutes, add imitation crab and soy sauce, and boil for about an additional 4 minutes. Adjust the amount of soy sauce to your liking .
Check that the turnips have softened, thicken with katakuriko, and stir in a whisked egg. Add ginger if you like.
Turn off the heat and then add turnip leaves . This tastes great piping hot or chilled.
Arrange into bowls, and enjoy!

Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to make a mildly flavored turnip stew, so I created this recipe. This is lightly flavored, and will put both children and adults at ease.
Turnip skins are chockfull of fiber! You will fail if you try to peel thinly . Be especially careful of the area around the leaves! Peel thickly! The turnips might taste salty if they are small, so adjust the amount of soy sauce.
