Ingredients (4 servings)
|Yakibuta (Roast pork)
|Naga-negi (Japanese leek)
Type of Miso
Kome (Rice) miso
- Cut the kushinsai to 4 ~ 5-cm length. Slice the yakibuta and stir-fry lightly with the vegetable oil. Shred the naga-negi lengthwise very thinly into “shiraga-negi.”
- Bring the dashi stock to a boil, add the yakibuta and kushinsai and boil for a moment. Lower the heat and dissolve the miso.
- Serve the miso soup in bowls with the shiraga-negi on top.
★ A Note
As its name indicates, kushinsai (empty-core vegetable) has hollow stalks. Because of its crispy texture, it is readily used in miso soup and stir-fries.
