Dishes made with vegan dashi
There are many kinds of vegan dashi, such as kombu dashi, dried shiitake dashi, and dried tomato dashi.
Akira suggests that delicious vegan dashi can also be made using ginger and garlic or by slow-cooking vegetables.
At AKIRA restaurant, vegan dashi is used to make nimono (simmered/stewed vegetables) for the bento boxes and kombu and dried tomato-based miso soup. According to Akira, it has a richness that matches that of bonito-based soups. Kombu dashi can also be used to give a richer taste to tomato soup or other creamy soups.
