How to make an unpleasant daikon delicious

I worked yesterday.

Since I finished working earlier than usual, I come home at 4:30pm.

Since it was a very cold day yesterday, I wanted to eat something warm.

I made Tonjiru for dinner.

Tonjiru is miso soup with pork and vegetables.

As a child, my mother used to make it on such a cold day like today.

"I am going to use this daikon which you harvested yesterday for dinner. But... this radish smells a little hot. I wonder if it's OK. Well, maybe it doesn't matter."

My husband and our 5-year-old daughter harvested it from our garden last Saturday.

I cut pork, daikon, carrot, green onions, burdock and shimeji mashrooms.

Then I stir-fried them and boiled them in soup stock for a while, then I put miso and dissolved it in the soup.

After I finished making Tonjiru, I had a taste.

"Why?? It isn't tasty. Oh, I've got it! Maybe it is because of Daikon. Hey, have a taste this!"

My husband tried to taste it.

"This daikon have a strong alkaline taste. You should have pre-boiled it in advance."

"But, I didn't think that it was such an unpleasant taste!"

I was really disappointed.

I asked:

"Is it edible for you? I don't want to eat it."

"It is edible for me. Wait, I will add this."

He suddenly started grating ginger and put it in the Tonjiru.

"Have a taste!"

I tasted it.

"Oh! It is nice! Wow, you are great!"

He rescued my failed dish brilliantly!

"Thank you! I am counting on you!"

Thnaks to him, we enjoyed having dinner.

  2. Hello Kumi-san,

    That food looks very nice. I am unfortunately not as good a cook as I should be. I do like spicy radish very much.

    Here is a list of the small issues I found while reading the post:

    1. Hello Terry.
      I finally made a mistake of Japanese vovabulary(the spelling of Tonjiru)!
      I am really embarressed.
      You are always my great helper.
      I really appreciate you!
