Korean Namul with Shiitake and Kiriboshi Daikon
The Korean Namul you've been eating may not have been perfect yet. Shiitake and Kombu give it an excellent natural umami flavor! The dried Daikon and carrot mix gives it a crunchy texture.
Many restaurants use Chinese Shiitake, but when you make it at home, you can use thick slices of Japanese Forest-grown Shiitake, which gives it a new dimension Umami taste. Please try cooking them. Dried carrots are more colorful than fresh carrots and are great for adding color to dishes.
