  • About


  • 500 ml (16 fl oz) konbu dashi
  • 600 g (1⅓ pound) daikon
  • 2 g (1/10 oz) ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Sea salt, as needed


Prepare konbu dashi and set aside.

Peel and cut daikon into chunks. Boil a pot of water and add in daikon. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until the daikon is soft. Remove daikon and leave to cool. Once cool, puree daikon in a food processor until smooth.

Peel and cut ginger into thin slices. Heat sesame oil in a pot and stir fry ginger for about 30 seconds. Transfer konbu dashi and daikon puree into the pot. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes under low heat while stirring.

Add salt to taste, spoon into 4 serving bowls and serve hot.
