This is from "The Enlightened Kitchen: Fresh Vegetable Dishes from the Temples of Japan" by Mari Fujii. It comes from Kenchoji Temple, the first Zen buddhist temple in Japan. It is a wonderful example of shojin ryori, or "temple cuisine". The ingredients suggest this is a winter soup, although for health and nutrition, this soup can certainly be served in any season. The author suggests that instead of the soy sauce (or in place of part of it), you can substitute miso or sake without losing authenticity. Although this looks like a lot of directions, it's actually a very simple preparation. If you can boil water, stir fry, and use a knife to slice vegetables, you have all the skills you need. Once you make this, you won't even need to look at the directions. Note: prep time and cooking time does not include the 2 hr soaking of the konbu to make konbu stock, but does include all other cooking and soaking times.
