Enoki and Shirataki Stir Fry Recipe

This easy enoki shirataki stir fry is a very good Japanese vegetarian dish for those who need some quick filling meal. Shirataki is noodles made from konjac, and this thing is the perfect diet food since the calorie is negligible. You can treat this as a main noodle dish if you want, though I usually treat it more like a side dish.

Enoki and Shirataki Stir Fry Ingredients

The Main Ingredients: Enoki and Shirataki

Enoki comes in a vacuum pack of 7 oz. (200 gram). I love this mushroom and my house usually have plenty of them stocked in the fridge. You need to trim the root off, so just chop off and discard about one inch of the root. Then, for this dish, I chop the enoki bunch into two halves lengthwise. Shirataki as I said is konjac noodles. They are usually sold side by side with the solid block konnyaku, and like konnyaku, come in either white or brown color. You can choose either one as the color is more a matter of preference.

Once all the prep work is done, this dish comes together in under 10 minutes. Start by cooking the shirataki until slightly dry, then add enoki and oil, and mix well. Then, just add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Once the sauce is slightly reduced, the dish is done. Transfer into a serving plate and garnish with some thinly sliced scallions.

Enoki Miso Soup Recipe | Daily Cooking Quest

In my house, I prepare miso soup at least once a week. Half of the time, I prepare my super basic miso soup, and half of the time, I prepare something a bit extra, like this enoki miso soup. If you have easy access to Asian grocery stores that stock pretty complete Japanese ingredients, I highly recommend stocking your fridge at all times with some miso paste and dashi stock granules. With these two ingredients, you can quickly prepare lovely soup with just a handful of ingredients.

Enoki Miso Soup Ingredients

What goes into enoki miso soup?

For this miso soup, you will need:

  • a packet of enoki mushroom (7 oz/200 gram)
  • a packet of soft tofu (14 oz/400 gram)
  • 2 tablespoon dried wakame, and
  • 4 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1 liter (4 cup) dashi stock, preferably homemade dashi, but store-bought dashi stock granules make a decent enough miso soup
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

There is actually quite a lot of variety of miso paste, but in the United States, the main three common types are:

If you are lucky enough to see other varieties, feel free to give them a try. For this recipe, I stick to the most common shiro miso.

How to preparing enoki miso soup

Miso soup is one of the simplest soup to make, which is also true for this version. Here is the step-by-step:

  1. Chop off and discard 1 inch of the enoki root. Cut the enoki bunch into two halves lengthwise. Wash and drain.
  2. Soak wakame in cold water to rehydrate.
  3. Bring dashi stock to a boil in a soup pot, then add enoki and simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. Add soaked wakame and tofu cubes into the pot. Once the soup boils again, turn off the heat.
  5. Place miso paste in a strainer, then lower the strainer to the hot soup. Use a spoon or a pair of chopsticks to stir the miso paste until all the paste haste dissolved into the soup.
    Note: Miso paste is full of health benefits, but the highly valued nutrients in miso paste will not survive high heat from cooking. So, always add miso paste to hot liquid and slowly whisk once the heat has been turned off.
  6. Serve the soup hot with thinly sliced scallions as garnish.

Enoki Crabstick Salad with Wasabi Mayonnaise Dressing Recipe

My number one favorite Japanese salad is potato salad, the next one is either this enoki crabstick salad with wasabi mayonnaise dressing or sarada no gomae (salad with sesame dressing).

When I need a super quick and easy salad though, then this enoki crabstick salad is definitely the best choice. If you have everything handy, you can easily prepare this delicious salad in under 15 minutes!

Ingredients for Enoki Crabstick Salad with Wasabi Mayonnaise Dressing

What you need to prepare enoki crabstick salad

For the salad, you need only three main ingredients:

  • crab sticks,
  • enoki, and
  • scallions.

The salad dressing needs a bit more ingredients, but not overwhelmingly so. You will need:

From my experience, all the listed ingredients shouldn’t be too hard to come by. The only thing that could be difficult is enoki, you can substitute with shredded cabbage, or other salad greens of your choice.

Preparing the Salad

The only cooking involved is to blanch the enoki, which if you are super lazy, you can kinda cook them in a microwave too.

Everything else is pretty basic, tear the crab sticks into shreds, chop the scallions, and mix the dressing.

To make the salad, just toss everything together so all the ingredients are coated with the sauce.

This salad is best served chill, so stick the whole thing in the fridge for an hour or two before serving.
