Vegan Mille Feuille Nabe Japanese Thousand-Layer Scorching Pot

Thousand layers of flavors, textures, and nourishing vitamins – this vegan model of Mille Feuille Nabe is tremendous comforting and but tremendous mild on the identical time. Full of recent greens and silky tofu pores and skin for protein, cooked in an umami home made vegan dashi and served with my fave dipping sauce.

The Mille Feuille Nabe is likely one of the prettiest Japanese scorching pot variations in my humble opinions (though they’re all so aesthetically pleasing!). Historically, it is manufactured from napa cabbage layered with fatty pork stomach slices. I really like the layered arrangment, it is really easy on the attention and in addition makes it additional enjoyable to eat.

I have been lacking this comforting pot quite a bit so I lastly simply went forward and made a vegan model with colourful veggies and tofu pores and skin, which is skinny and versatile and matches properly inbetween napa cabbage leaves. And usually I might go for both enoki mushroom or beech mushroom within the middle of the pot however since I did not have any at hand I simply used mung bean sprouts.

Preppign for this meal is tremendous simple and the whole lot cooks up in a single donabe, or any thick pot you’ve. You possibly can get pleasure from this Nabe with some good steamy rice on the aspect and a flavorful dip with a kick! I made my fave citrusy, umami, and barely spicy dip however you’ll be able to go along with any sauce you want!
