Umami-Rich Soy Milk Hotpot

Hot Pot Soup Base Ideas

Sounds weird? Surprisingly it’s not! I was skeptical about soy milk as soup base at first. However, after the first sip, I’m sold!

It’s super simple to make yet it tastes complex. Of course we are not using sweetened soy milk. Use unsweetened soy milk from the chiller.. add water and salt (sake & mirin optional)…
