Nametake is a simple Japanese side of enoki mushrooms cooked in mirin and soy sauce until soft. Because its flavor is so strong, it's best served as a side to neutral flavors, like rice, or as a topping to steamed tofu. It can also be stored in a mason jar like pickles for use as a topping to sandwiches, noodles, or whenever you're craving a boost of umami flavor
