How to cook

  • 1. Wash and steam the sweet potatoes in their skins (6 to 8 minutes in a microwave oven, depending on the size). When softened, peel and cut into rounds (for large potatoes, cut into bite-size rounds, about 3 cm in diameter). Peel and boil the lentils over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes until cooked through (for large potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces about 3 cm in diameter and shape into rounds). Cut konnyaku into triangular pieces and boil for about 3 minutes. Cut 1/2 of the tofu into 8 rectangles.

  • 2. Mix the buckwheat flour with water, knead well, roll into bite-sized pieces, place in boiling water and boil for 2 minutes.

  • 3. For the miso sauce, combine the grated ginger with the seasonings and cook down in a microwave over low heat. Using a microwave is convenient because it can be done without burning. *Repeat 3 times for 1 minute at 500w.

  • 4. Thread the konnyaku, tofu, potatoes, satoimo, and buckwheat dumplings onto 18cm-long bamboo skewers in this order, and grill until slightly charred, then brush evenly with miso sauce.

  • 5. Grill until the miso on the surface of the dumplings is browned.

  • 6. Garnish with kinomame sprouts and serve.
