23 November, 2016 , ,

Japan is famous for sushi because it’s so beautiful and delicious. But there’s a lot more to Japanese food. Though the country is compact, the regions vary in both tradition and culinary delights. It has a culinary tradition that somehow manages to bring fashion and family together for amazing traditional dishes that blow you away in both flavour and aesthetics. So we have 5 easy Japanese recipes to help you discover Japanese cuisine right in your own kitchen.

#5 – Miso Broth

Miso Broth

Miso is a fermented soy bean product that is used to flavour soups and sauces. On its own, it’s incredibly salty and somewhat yeasty, but it brings a powerful umami note to dishes. This miso broth makes a great snack on its own, as a side like you might find on the edge of a Japanese meal, or you can add your favourite vegetables and seafood for something more hearty. I suggest nori and enoki mushrooms.

Soy forms the basis of many Japanese dishes, whether it’s as miso, natto, edamame, or soy sauce. Another soy product, tofu, is probably the second most familiar, after soy sauce. It comes in different textures and preparations making it incredibly versatile. For a healthy spin, you can try this baked version. It’s full of wonderful aromatics and makes a great vegetarian option or appetiser.
