The rainy season is back in Seattle. It’s dark…wet… and I wasn’t in the mood to cook up a fancy meal. While at the Japanese supermarket, an oden set was literally calling out to me. So, I bought the oden set and made a quick and easy oden hot pot.
It’s still gloomy outside, but at least my tummy is warm and happy.
Cooking time: about 15 minutes
This recipe makes about 3 Servings
- 4 and 1/3 cup water (1L)
- 1 teaspoon granulated dashi
- 1 teaspoon granulated anchovy dashi
- 2 tablespoon sake
- 2 tablespoon mirin
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 green onion (chopped into 1 inch pieces)
- 1/4 small onion (sliced)
- 1 inch piece Korean radish (chopped into 1/4 inch pieces)
- 1 serrano chili pepper (optional)
- 20 piece oden set (21oz/595g)
Things You’ll Need
Fill a Japanese Pot with 4 and 1/3 cup water (1L) and bring to a boil. Slice and chop the green onion, radish, onion, and serrano chili pepper. When water comes to a boil, add both of the granulated dashi and vegetables. Simmer for a minute.
Now add the oden, sake, mirin, and soy sauce. Simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes (if oden is thin 5 minutes and if oden is thick 10 minutes).
