    Santos's Note:

    This dish is the epitomy of 'home style' Japanese comfort food. This version is lightening quick, without the need to prepare the fish stock (dashi) that so many real Japanese dishes require. This staple is to be enjoyed in the fall or coming winter months! Enjoy.

      Oh yum. Yum and more yum. I like this one lots, both because I like Japanese food, and because I like healthy food. It's got real, classic, Japanese flavor -- tastes like something I might get in a good Japanese restaurant!

      This really did take 10 minutes, and it was colorful, warm, and healthy. The only thing I did not like was the soggy bonito flakes in the dish; in some ways I'd rather spend an extra 10 minutes making dashi than deal with that texture. Probably not everyone minds that, though.

      this is good stuff; it takes a few tries to get the portions of sugar/saki/sugar/water though. You should base it more on personal taste than the measurments. Bonito shavings might be hard to come by, too. If you can get them, it's a recipe that can grow on you, and is an easy wow for guests.
