It's a simple soup made with garlic chives and egg. This soup can be seasoned with miso if you would like.

Yield: 4 servings


  • 3 1/3 cup dashi soup
  • 2 oz nira (garlic chives), cut into 2 inch lengths
  • 1/4 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp sake
  • 1 tsp mirin
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • salt


Put dashi soup and sake in a medium pan and bring to a boil on medium heat. Add chives and onion in the soup and simmer until softened. Season with soy sauce and mirin and bring to a boil again. Pour beaten egg into the soup gradually. Adjust the flavor with salt. Stop the heat.
