Author Notes

Make namesake and top this on short-grain rice, porridge, tofu and even pasta. Also, namesake makes a terrific omelette. Nametake is enoki mushroom cooked in soy sauce, mirin and sake. It’s super simple but versatile. A lot of people in Japan purchase pre-made nametake in a jar made by huge food manufacturing companies, but homemade is actually economical and tastes FAR better. It only takes 10 minutes to make and lasts in the fridge for 5 days! So, what is your excuse?!

Growing up, I come back from school hungry and cannot wait for a dinner. So I serve myself a bowl of rice and top with nametake I find in the fridge to hold me over to a dinner! I make this in a large batch and top this on everythting to make a quick lunch and dinner. If you can’t find enoki mushroom, sliced shiitake and shimeji mushroom work perfectly well (NO porcini mushrooms)! —Arisa Slutsky
