Ingredients & Method

Curry Hot Pot

In a smoking hot frying pan, add oil, cumin, coriander, ginger, tumeric and sautÈ until dark brown. Add in garlic, carrot, onion, tomato and apple. Cook until tender. De glaze the frying pan with the stock. Reduce the heat and simmer. Let gently cook until all vegetables are fully cooked, about 15-20 minutes. Put in a blender, puree and strain through a sieve. Use salt and pepper to taste.

In the same pot that you serve, simmer the onion, pepper, carrots, ginger, eggplant, green beans and potatoes in the curry sauce until tender. Add the rest of the vegetables and tofu then bring up to a simmer for about three minutes and taste for seasoning. Adjust if necessary. Serve with rice.

Fusebox Vegetable Nabe
In a pot that you can cook and serve in, arrange all of the vegetables in order of longest cooking time, to the shortest time to cook, i.e., potatoes, carrots, onion, then eggplant and cabbage, mushrooms, ginger and green onion. Place all vegetables and grains and tofu in the pot and cover over the vegetables with broth until it is covering the first two inches from the bottom. Slowly bring the pot up to a boil and continue to simmer until the vegetables are tender about 6 minutes. At this point you can add the miso in to taste and serve family style.
