Kon-Sai Soup
根菜汁

This soul-warming vegetable-packed soup definitely reminds me of home. Kon-Sai means root vegetables in Japan. One of the root vegetables in this soup is Daikon radish.

Moroccan Chickpea Stew with Roasted Veggies

The main players were sauteed eggplant and zucchini, but the supporting players are also important. These are some of my favorite […]
