8. Green Tea Soup With Roasted Eggplant (Ochazuke)
Green Tea Soup (ochazuke) is a Japanese soup that is traditionally served with rice and salted fish as well as nori or another type of sea vegetable. This vegan version by Sarah Gory is easily adaptable with any kind of vegetable. And if you find the flavor too mild, drizzle some soy sauce or tamari into the soup or even stir in a dollop of miso. The key to keeping with the flavor profile is to compliment the green tea with something salty – roasted eggplant, in the case of this soup – and something from the ocean.
