The Return of Mitsuba


I decided to have a light dinner last night. I also remembered about mitsuba, a veggie I hadn’t bought in a year or two. I love it in miso soup. I found, what I thought was, a new type of potato – the oyaimo (親芋). It looks like it is actually a large satoimo that smaller potatoes grow around like children. Hence the name, which means parent potato.

On the menu
Boiled kabu (turnips) and greens dipped in yuzu kosho mentsuyu, miso soup with mitsuba and oyaimo, edamame tofu and rice topped with garlic sesame seeds.
