The soup is delicious with just the umami from the mushrooms! It's a quick dish to prepare.
This is one of the quick soups that I often serve for my family.This originally didn't have any mochi in it, but now it doesn't taste right without it!
There are many different kinds of mushrooms available. Try different varieties to deepen the flavor. Add grilled mochi for aroma and to bulk up the dish. The key is to use sesame oil for flavor.
