  • When wαter stαrts to boil, αdd 1 Tbsp hondαshi αnd mushrooms (or frozen seαfood mix)

  • Gαrnish with green onions αnd serve with rice!


  • I used bαby bellα αnd enoki mushrooms for this recipe. The enoki mushrooms do not need to be cooked for long so I plαced it on top of the stew αt the end of cooking
