By Mabi David / Me & My Veg Mouth

1 lb of peeled and chopped/sliced daikon and green papaya
2 T soy sauce
1/4 c mirin
2-3 pcs dried shiitake mushrooms
2-inch strip of dried kelp (optional)
Make the dashi
Slice the daikon in 3/4-inch thick rounds, slice the papaya in roughly the same size.
Add to pan and enough water just to almost cover the daikon.
Add soy sauce, mirin, mushrooms and dried kelp. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cover and let cook for 30 minutes.
Twenty minutes into the cooking, when daikon is almost cooked, add green papaya. Cover again and cook until tender.
