Ingredient List:

  • ½ red onion, thin half moons
  • Soy sauce
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • Mirin or white wine
  • 1 small carrot, thin oblongs
  • ½ zucchini, thin half moons
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • ½ block extra firm tofu, small cubes ½ package mochi, thinly sliced

Step By Step Instructions:

Place a small amount of olive oil in a skillet with red onion over medium heat. When the onion begins to sizzle, add a splash of soy sauce and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, a splash of mirin and sauté until mushrooms are quite soft. Layer carrot, zucchini and cabbage on top with tofu cubes as the top layer. Add a small amount of water, cover and reduce heat to medium low and simmer until cabbage is soft, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the cover and season lightly with soy sauce. Lay mochi slices on top to cover the veggies (add water if needed to steam, but not a lot). Cover and simmer on medium low heat until the mochi melts, covering the veggies. Serve immediately.
