Vegan Mofo Day 6

I LOVE Asian food and they make is so easy to make most of the meals vegan since the focus is on vegetables and grains and only use meat as a flavor element. I recently discovered Sukiyaki and it's become one of my favorite Japaneses dishes. It's a great recipe to use for a hurried meal since you can pretty much just use whatever vegetable you have in the fridge.
  • A handful of shirataki noodles or cellophane noodles
  • 7-8 shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 block enoki mushrooms
  • 1 medium negi
  • 1/2 Chinese cabbage (or Bok choy)
  • 1 yaki-dofu (grilled tofu)
  • For sukiyaki sauce:
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tbsps sake
  • 5 T sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
Chop up all of the vegetables into bite size pieces. Traditionally you are suppose to have a pot on a portable stove and cook everything at the table but I just make it on the stove and everyone severs themselves that way. Mix sauce ingredients and add to pan. Add all ingredients to the pan, making little piles for each different food. Simmer and use chop sticks or a wooden spoon to make sure everything gets cooked in the sauce. Cook until desired tenderness and serve.

If anyone has a tasty traditional Japanese recipe please feel free to share!
