Noppei Jiru

A soup made with offcuts of vegetables pan-fried and simmered in dashi soup, seasoned with shoyu and salt, then slightly thickened with katakuriko (starch). The basic ingredients are satoimo, carrots, konnyaku, shiitake mushrooms, and aburaage, but kamaboko, zucchinis, cucumbers, cauliflowers, onions, fish or meat paste and western vegetables could also be used. It is better to boil vegetables which have strong fragrance such as celery and sprouts before putting into the pot.
