Story Behind this Recipe
You can tear the lettuce by hand. I wanted to make a quick soup with less washing up to do. I slightly altered the seasonings to my favorite turnip soup recipe.
You can use mizuna greens instead as you can also shred by hand and they are easy to use. Don't overcook and enjoy the crispy texture. Adding grated sesame seed, sesame oil and seasoned nori seaweed makes this soup richer, easy, and tasty. It's also delicious over rice!!
