<Yield> 4 servings

<Prep time> 10 minutes

<Cook time> 0 minutes


1 Asian eggplant (120g), thinly sliced

2 small cucumbers (200g), thinly sliced

30g ginger, shredded

3 pieces myoga (Japanese ginger), thinly sliced

5g (2 inch ×2 inch) kombu, cut into thin strips

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon Soy sauce


1. Slice the eggplant, cucumbers and myoga as thin as possible. I recommend using a mandolin if you have one. Remove the skin of the ginger and thinly shred it.

2. Transfer the sliced eggplant, cucumbers, myoga and giner into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and then massage until liquid comes out. Cut the kombu into thin strips and then add them into the bowl. Mix everything together a couple times and let sit for 10 minute. After resting add in the soy sauce and toss together. Transfer to a plate and now it's ready to be enjoyed.
