Today’s Cooking Japanese Style is called Sesame Soup with Komatsuna or 小松菜のごまスープ in Japanese. This is a very delicious tasting soup and very easy to make. This can be made as a side dish or even a main dish for dinner if you prefer. I usually make this as a side dish for my family as goes great with any fish or meat main. Enjoy Let’s see what we need to make our Sesame Soup with Komatsuna.
  • 1 bunch komatsuna
  • 1 thinly deep-fried tofu
  • 4㎝ kamaboko fish cake
  • 8 mochi rice cake
  • 4 cups dashi stock
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp mirin
  • 5-6 tbsp sesame paste
  • half grind sesame
  • yuzu zest

  1. Boil the komatsuna in salted hot water, and drain and cut into 3㎝ lengths pieces, and squeeze to remove the excess water.
  2. Boil the deep fried tofu in hot water briefly, drain and cut into 8 pieces, and slice the fish cake into 4 pieces.
  3. Bake the rice cake until surface should be crispy and inside soft.
  4. Pour the dashi stock into a pot, and bring to the boil, add the soy sauce, mirin, and deep fried tofu and simmer over medium heat for 1 min, and add the sesame paste.
  5. Place the rice cake, komatsuna, and fish cake in a serving bowl, and pour the hot soup, garnish with half grind sesame and yuzu zest.
