Kasujiru is eaten during the cold season. It is similar to Miso soup, cooked with Miso (soybean paste) and Sakekasu (Sake lees).
Sakekasu is leftover bits of the Sake making process, rich in nutrients, having a high value of beauty and health effects :)
Number of servings: 6-8
800g (1.8lb) turnips with greens
200g (7oz.) Konnyaku (yam cake)
100g (3.5oz.) carrot
4 Shiitake mushrooms
2 Aburaage (deep-fried tofu pouch)
1200ml Dashi stock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObUMAxtnCCA
100g (3.5oz.) Sakekasu (Sake lees)
4~5 tbsp. Miso (soybean paste)
Shichimi-togarashi (seven flavor chili pepper) if you like
1. Tear Konnyaku into chunks with a spoon or your hands. Boil from water then drain.
2. Wash Aburaage with running water (to remove excess oil), drain well, and cut into thin strips.
3. Cut turnip bulbs into wedges. Chop turnip greens coarsely.
4. Thinly slice the carrot (cut into thin rounds, half moons, or quarter rounds depending on the size of the carrot).
5. Thinly slice Shiitake mushrooms.
6. Put Dashi stock in a large pot. Add turnip wedges, carrot slices, Aburaage, and Konnyaku, then cook for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, dilute the Sakekasu and 4tbsp. of Miso in a little bit of broth to prevent lumping.
7. Return the diluted Sakekasu and Miso to the soup. Add Shiitake and turnip greens, then cook for 5 minutes. Taste and add more Miso to adjust the flavor.
8. Serve in a dish and sprinkle with Shichimi-togarashi (seven flavor chili pepper) if you like.
*the green leaves of turnips are where most of the nutrients are found
