(Prep) Drain the tofu. Chop the carrot. Cut the green beans into small pieces.
Add the water and granulated kombu dashi stock to a frying pan and bring to a boil.
Add the ginger, ground chicken, carrot, and green beans to the pan. When it comes to boil again, add the soy sauce and mirin.
When the meat is cooked through and the carrots and green beans are softened, add the tofu to the pan and break it up into bite-sized pieces.
When it comes to a boil again, turn the heat to low. Add the katakuriko (dissolved in water) and stir to thicken.
Season with black sesame and give it a quick stir. All done.
