Vegetarian Sukiyaki

Today we're making Sukiyaki, a popular Japanese dish traditionally made with meat, into a tasty vegetarian version...without compromising on taste, of course.

We're going to show you how to make Vegetarian Sukiyaki that embraces the richness of umami flavors and highlights an array of fresh and colorful vegetables. With a combination of savory and slightly sweet notes, this dish is sure to please both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

To prepare your Vegetarian Sukiyaki, begin by making the sauce. In a bowl, combine 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of mirin, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon of sake, ½ teaspoon of Mike's Mighty Good soy sauce soup base, and a drizzle of MMG soy sauce seasoning oil. Mix the ingredients well and set the sauce aside.

Next, heat a shallow pot over medium heat. Add 1-2 sliced king mushrooms and 2 chopped green onions to the pot. Sauté them for about a minute until they become slightly browned and fragrant. Once done, remove the mushrooms and green onions from the pot and set them aside.

Now, it's time to add the vegetables to the pot. You can use an assortment of your choice, such as enoki mushrooms, baby bok choy, and Chinese cabbage. Feel free to be creative and use any type of mushroom that you prefer. Pour the prepared sauce over the vegetables and let the mixture come to a simmer. 

Once the vegetables have slightly softened, add the MMG Soy Sauce Ramen noodles to the pot. Cook the noodles for approximately 5-6 minutes or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
