I rarely keep to the "meatless monday" thingy.
But this past Monday, instead of using a chicken consomme cube, I used some leftover Japanese dashi when I made tomato miso soup, making it "meatless".
I also used whatever veggies were in my fridge (maitake, carrot, gobo).
Topping the soup with some leftover baby leaf just before serving.
According to the weather dude, the wintry weather will be around at least for the next week.
(Can you believe we were having March temps a couple weeks ago? Some ume (apricot) plants had started to bloom!)
What things are you cooking these days?
