Kake Soba is a basic Japanese recipe for soy, mirin, and dashi broth poured over cooked soba noodles. In this recipe, lightly inspired by a Bon Appétit recipe, the broth gets simplified and the soup is topped with crispy and meaty Maitake mushrooms and an assortment of crunchy and spicy accoutrements.
This fusion of Italian and Japanese elements work as a perfect backdrop to show off the prized Maitake or Hen of the Woods wild mushroom.
