Miso Nikomi Udon is a Japanese noodle soup dish prepared with chicken, fish cake, mushroom, tofu and udon noodles served in a miso-flavoured dashi broth.
Miso Nikomi Udon is a type of Donabe that contains udon, chicken, kamaboko, mushroom, negi, deep fried tofu and egg served on a miso infused dashi broth. Unlike most udons where it is served on a clear broth this one is quite out of the norm since this Nagoya specialty uses Hatcho miso as its seasoning, a unique miso that is tastier than Aka Miso (Red Miso) giving it a bolder flavour and slightly reddish broth.
Like all Donabe this dish is a one pot complete meal where you have all your food groups represented, vegetables, protein and carbohydrates. It is a very hearty umami filled dish that you can enjoy during cold weather season, like from where I am now, I know in the Northern Hemisphere it is getting warmer but there is no stopping you to enjoy a good bowl of this dish.
