Tonyu means soy milk in Japanese and nabe is a kind of one pot dish.
This thick and creamy nabe is full of vegetables and tofu it is comforting and filling but also healthy.
Its so quick to make all you need to do is prepare what vegetables you want to use.
I used napa cabbage,kale,leek,broccoli,carrot,pumpkin,tofu and a selection of Japanese mushrooms.
Start by steaming the vegetables first that take the longest so the carrot and the pumpkin and leave things like the kale and broccoli until the last minute.
In a pan add two cups of kombu dashi (leave a piece of kombu submerged in water over night or simmer for 15 mins) and two cups of soy milk,add one tablespoon of mirin and bring to a gentle simmer. Add your miso about two tablespoons and gently stir in.
Pour your broth into a large pot and add your vegetables and tofu. Serve with rice. (If you have a donabe pot like this one you can cook them all together in the same pot, just add your broth and vegetables pop on the lid and simmer )
A perfect meal for a cold day but so easy to make.
