Japanese Sukiyaki Roll Nabe (Napa Cabbage Rolls Scorching Pot)

Nabe, which suggests sizzling pot in Japanese, is one in every of my high consolation meals for chilly months or each time I really feel somewhat below the climate. It is so nourishing and balanced – with numerous veggies, plant protein, and wholesome carbs; however tremendous refreshing on the identical time – fully oil-free, slow-cooked in a flavorful broth, and the broth, in the long run, will gather all of the juice and flavors launched from the veggies and turn out to be much more heavenly and have extra depth.

And on this up to date model, I additionally added rice noodles on the backside of the donabe to make this meal extra hearty and satisfying. The rice noodles are good to slurp with the broth! For the fillings contained in the napa cabbage rolls, you’ll be able to just about use something you’ve gotten within the fridge, I used carrot, candy bell pepper, cilantro, wooden ear mushrooms, and tofu this time.

You may serve the nabe as is or add yet one more layer of taste and texture by making a dipping sauce for the rolls! My fave is peanut butter sauce and you can too use chili oil for somewhat kick~ In the event you do that recipe, please remember to tag me on Instagram and Tiktok ^^
