Nappa Cabbage and Mushrooms in Dashi Recipe

Sunday, May 12, 2013 | Labels: , |

This is just a simple mixed vegetables dish, with some fresh shiitake mushrooms added in for extra texture.  Instead of just garlic and soy sauce, I added in some dashi powder for a little more umami flavour.  The natural sweetness of the nappa cabbage goes great with dashi and if you like, you can make your own dashi broth with some bonito flakes and kombu (kelp).  Sometimes, I crave for something easy and comforting and this is one of my favourite vegetables dishes.

Oh, finally the weather is nice and sunny today - my clothes can finally dry! While living in the US, everyone used dryers for their clothes but once back in Asia, I have to start hanging out my clothes to dry again! Alright, that was very random, I am turning into a real 'auntie', when there's good weather I immediately think great for hanging clothes :D
