How to Cook It:

  1. Prepare all of your vegetables by washing, peeling and then chopping them into bite sized pieces. Mince the garlic for the dish and set to the side.

  5. Next, add all of the ingredients to the pot, starting with those that take the longest to cook. Potatoes (If you use them):

    Carrots meat mushrooms cabbage leeks tofu onions
  6. Cook for about 10 minutes.

  8. Eat!

I hope that you can enjoy making this dish with your family or friends. It’s perfect for the Fall or Winter. Should you decide to be more adventurous, a good seafood combination would be Shrimp and Scallops. A ½ cup of each would suffice. Be sure to de-vein the shrimp first. Nabe is also great if you have a cold. The broth will do wonders if your throat hurts or you’re just not super hungry. Nabe will also Stay fresh for a few days afterwards, so it’s great to reheat and enjoy!

Yum!
