      Tuesday, June 10

      In this episode of Moto's Kitchen we will learn how to prepare "konnyaku", a traditional Japanese yam cake enjoyed by many for its chewy, squid-like texture. "Konnyaku" is made from the konjac root, a vegetable similar to that of taro. Despite its unique consistency, "konnyaku" actually has very little taste on its own. Today, we will use the subtle flavors of Japanese staple ingredients like soy sauce and mirin to create the base for this meal. Enjoy!  Start Video
