Tonjiru (Japanese Pork & Vegetable Miso Soup)
Tonjiru (豚汁) is Japanese pork soup with vegetables and miso. I’m currently adopting the LCHF diet, so it meant low/no-carbs for dinner. Tonjiru is now my favourite LCHF recipe because it is nutritious, superbly delicious, filling and guilt-free. I first discovered this dish at a local Tonkatsu restaurant and it is now one of my favourite soups. Due to the slow simmering of the pork, there is a depth of flavour to the soup that is full of umami deliciousness.
A bowl of tonjiru is filling on its own due to all the many goodies (pork, daikon, carrot, mushrooms) and the sliced konnyaku (konjac; which has almost zero calories). If you are not counting calories like I am (sob sob), multigrain rice will also be a great companion to this soup.
