10 minutes- Tororo (Grated Yam) Noodles

April 21, 2014

Author Notes: Adapted from: http://365gourmet.blogspot.nl/2012/07/10-minutes-lunch-recipe-soup-tororo.html _ I really like the wasabi taste in the soup, interesting to taste it in a bowl of soup noodles. Fun story about Nagaimo (yam), because of its sticky texture when grated, mountain yam was used as a personal lubricant in the Edo Period in Japan, and thus it was also considered improper to be eaten by a woman.nikoleung
