Simmered Hijiki Seaweed and Shiitake Mixture

A delicious, healthy recipe with dried food! Dried Shiitake becomes delicious with more sweetness and no unfavorable tastes when it is hydrated in cold water.

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 5 Dried Shiitake
  • 15g Dried Hijiki Seaweed
  • 100g Konnyaku (Konjak)
  • 1/2 Carrot
  • 50g Lotus Root
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 100g Canned Soybeans Boiled in Water
  • 1 Cup Shiitake soaking water
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Koikuchi Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Usukuchi Soy Sauce


Rehydrate the dried Shiitake in water and slice them. Rehydrate the Hijiki seaweed so that it remains firm.
Parboil the konnyaku and cut it into small pieces. Cut the carrot into pieces with a similar size. Peel the skin off of the lotus root, cut them into thin strips, and put them in water to remove the bitterness.
Heat the vegetable oil in a pot; stir-fry 1, 2, and the soybeans boiled in water; add the water used to rehydrate the Shiitake, sugar, and soy sauce; and simmer it until the broth evaporates.


Rehydrating dried Shiitake with cold water gets rid of bad odors and brings out more sweetness and flavor.
