Today is January 7th and it’s a day to eat nanakusa-gayu (rice porridge with 7 herbs) to let our stomaches relax after eating and drinking too much during new year’s holidays.
Talking about myself, I just came back from my husband’s parents’ home last night. It was quite a busy trip and I had been missing my own miso soup! So using the ingredients of nanakusa-gayu, I made miso soup of 7 herbs.
Just cut water dropwort, shepherd’s purse, cudweed, chickweed, nipplewort, turnip and radish, cook them in broth and add miso paste.
