  • 1 block of firm tofu cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 head of napa cabbage sliced
  • 1 large carrot sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup enoki mushrooms trimmed
  • 1/2 cup shimeji mushrooms trimmed
  • 1/2 cup snow peas trimmed
  • 1/2 cup daikon radish sliced thinly

  • In a large pot, bring the vegetable broth or water to a boil over medium heat.
