Tori No Mizutaki
 (Chicken Stew)
Valkyrie, Japan

  • 1 lb chicken drumsticks chopped into 1-inch pieces (Use cleaver or heavy knife) 

  • 1 lb tofu, pressed and drained, cut into 1-inch pieces 

  • 1 bundle watercress 

  • 1 Chinese cabbage, cut into 2-inch pieces 

  • 2 cups shirataki (or substitute bean vermicelli, available at your nearest Chinese grocery store) 

  • 2 cups spring onions, cut into 2-inch pieces 

  • 1 cup carrots, thinly sliced diagonally 

  • 8 dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked in water (Keep this water.) 

  • 1 2 inch x 6 inch kombu seaweed, or 2 tsp. dashi powder 

Dipping sauce

  • 1 cup Kikkoman soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar

  • 1 lemon

Add 1 inch of water to a 12-inch table-top skillet (electric or gas, whatever is available). 

Add the kombu and boil. Just before it starts to actually boil, remove the kombu. 

If you are using dashi powder, add it now . 

If you soaked the shiitake mushrooms, dump that water in here, too. 

Anyway, just put whatever you want to eat in the water to cook it until ready.

Serve with dipping sauce (just mix what's shown above) and lots of steamed rice.

 If you have the luxury of obtaining shichimi togarashi, sprinkle in a bit for added flavor.
