Story Behind this Recipe

I put on weight during the year-end holidays and just couldn't lose it again. So, that's why I've been making a lot of konnyaku dishes. But apparently I wasn't getting enough nutrients, so my skin dried out....
So, I combined it with some very nourishing garlic chives, added a richer flavor, and it came out delicious. It goes so well with rice. This will probably backfire on my diet plans since I love rice so much!
