In need of a go-to weeknight dinner that is easy, delicious and healthy?

Nabe (aka hot pot) is the perfect meal that can be thrown together in 10 minutes using these five pantry essentials, and any vegetable/protein you have in your fridge. 

Enjoying nabe in your donabe with your loved ones is a long-standing Japanese tradition that brings people closer-- as you are cooking and eating together, even grumpy teenagers who are quick to eat and run off to their rooms will be forced to sit with you for wholesome conversation as the food cooks. 

Also a great menu option for a dinner party, as it serves many people and the host can sit and chat while cooking. 

For most traditional experience, invest also in a table-top butane konro so you can cook at the table. 

Included: Flying Fish Dashi Packets and Vegan Dashi Packets made with no chemicals or preservatives, Kamada Dashi Soy sauce, Kuki Sesame Oil, and Yuzukararin yuzu and chili condiment which is also great on eggs, tofu, gyoza, pasta and even pizza. 

Recipe as follows: 

Serving size: 4 people 

  1. Put 1500ml water in your donabe, heat until simmering (but not a full boil). 
  2. Rip open 1 to 2 packets of Flying Fish Dashi Packets and mix the contents into the water. Stir until mostly dissolved, some pieces will remain but that’s okay.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons of Kamada Dashi Soy sauce, salt to season. 
  4. Add in whatever ingredients you would like in your nabe (hot pot). Popular vegetables include napa cabbage, mushrooms (shiitake, shimeji, enoki,  maitake), thinly sliced carrots, leeks or Japanese negi (green onions). Popular proteins for nabe include bite sized chicken, thinly shaved pork, tofu, shrimp, white fish filets like cod, clams. The more different things you put in, the more umami your nabe will develop! (This style of throwing in whatever you have is called yose-nabe) 
  5. When ingredients are done cooking, people can serve into their individual bowls. 
  6. Sprinkle Yuzukararin and drizzle a bit of finishing sesame oil into your own bowl for the ultimate fragrance and taste.
  7. Continue to use the same dashi broth and add in more ingredients- you will notice that the broth gets better and better as the meal progresses.
