Ozoni soup is one of the main dishes eaten during the Japanese New Year’s celebration. Reminiscent of udon soup, but with mochi standing in for the noodles, it is simple, soothing, and satisfying. This version is the one that New York’s EN Japanese Brasserie serves during its New Year’s festivities.
What to buy: Dashi-no-moto is the instant form of dried bonito (tuna) flakes used to make Japanese soup stock and can be found in most Japanese markets.
