1. Refer to Recipe ID: 1627512, for prepping daikon. Simmer on low heat to tenderize.
2. After prepping the daikon, fill a pot with enough water to cover the daikon, add kombu seaweed (or bonito flakes) and heat.
3. Do not allow the pot to boil! It should be heated only to the point where it simmers. Add 1 teaspoon of soy sauce to add color.
4. Cover with a drop lid, then simmer on low heat...
5. ...for over 30 minutes. (I simmered mine for about an hour.)
6. Put the ○ ingredients in a sauce pan. Add 1 ladle full of the stewed broth from Step 5. If you like a lot of miso sauce, double the ○ ingredients.
7. Heat and simmer until smooth. Be careful not to burn it!
8. Cut the kombu.
9. Lay the daikon on top, like it's sitting on top of the kombu.
10. Then, top the daikon with plenty of miso sauce. Sprinkle on sesame seeds to taste.
11. Look how beautifully this turned out!
12. It's so tender that you can cut it with chopsticks.
