So it looks like fall is equivalent to Japanese food in my brain. I’ve basically been eating only Japanese food for a week. I had a craving for nimono (vegetables boiled in a soy sauce-based sauce). I found this buri daikon recipe and only changed one thing (besides adding tons of veggies)- I decreased the amount of cooking sake to 20mL from 120mL as that was all I had.
On the menu that night was the nimono, miso soup with kabu (turnip) slices and greens and rice topped with garlic sesame.
