For the month of September, The Soup Spoon launched their Souper Inspiration Japan. Souperchef Anna had come out with 3 different Japan themed soups, “Japanese Style Vegan Sweet Potato Curry”, “Nikujaga Wasabi Beef Stew” and “Salmon Head Touyu Nabe” using the different types of stable or comfort Japan food.
The combination of both Japanese purple sweet potato and orange sweet potato chunks. The sweet potatoes were soft but not mushy. One thing I love about Japan curry was that usage of roasted apple in their curry bring out the natural sweetness. The other key ingredient was honey. It gave the curry the sweetness and also help to tame the spiciness.
The main highlight of the stew is the seiyo wasabi that was added in to give the whole concept a twist. Surprisingly, the combination was really good.Souperchef Anna also added Konnyaki which tasted like jelly but with a firmer texture. Knnoyaki is know for its almost zero calories and high in fibre.
The soup stock was made with salmon head, soya milk, shiro miso. I like the light yet rich combination of the soup broth. The Ichigo Tsukune Balls combining prawns, mentaiko, yamaimo, ginger and tofu together. The Ichigo Tsukune Balls were very flavorful and springy, how I wish they can have more Ichigo Tsukune Balls in the soup.
The grounded black sesame powder mixed with the light fluffy chiffon cake was irresistible. The layer of Black Sesame Butter cream was great in adding the slight sweetness to the overall taste.
