Japanese Hot Pot (Nabe)

今日の夕食は、お鍋にしました。甥っ子のガールフレンドはベジタリアンですが、外では多少妥協して出汁やフィッシュソースなどは大丈夫とのことなので、鶏団子も入れてわたしたちは鶏団子も食べました。鶏団子を食べなくても十分食べるものがあるように、今日はお野菜系の種類も多めにし、いつものレタス、人参、豆腐の他に白菜、しめじ、しいたけ、空芯菜、もやしも。足らないといけないのでマロニーも買っていましたが、その前に全員お腹いっぱいになったので使わずでした。タレは、ゴマだれにごまペーストやお醤油、みりん、唐辛子、米酢、にんにっくなどを混ぜたものにシャンツァイ、青ネギ、赤唐辛子、柚子胡椒を好みで足したもの。

Today’s dinner was Nabe (Japanese Hot Pot).  Although our nephew’s girlfriend is a vegetarian, she is OK to compromise when necessary and OK with things like soup stock and fish sauce type of things, so I did make mince chicken balls for the rest of us, but it was mostly vegetables and I prepared more vegetables than we usually have.  Our usual lettuce, carrot, tofu and also shimeji mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, morning glory, and bean sprouts.  I also bought some Japanese glass noodles but we were all too full to have them.  I make the sauce by mixing some sesame paste, store-bought Japanese sesame shabu shabu sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, mirin, and garlic to which we each added some coriander leaves, green onions, red pepper, and yuzu-kosho according to our taste.

食べ始めてから引いて写真を撮るつもりだったのに忘れてしまい、撮ったのはこの1枚。

I meant to take a photo or two after we started eating from further back but forgot completely, so this is the only photo of the dinner.
