If you're looking for a taste of the sea, try Mitoku's Kombu Dried Sea Vegetable. The best way to use this kombu is to soak it for at least 20 minutes before use. If you're only using it as a garnish, try simmering it for an hour beforehand to soften it.
Instead of reaching for cornstarch, try Mitoku's Kuzu. This thickening agent is made of one of the world's largest vegetable roots and is known for its medicinal properties in Japan and China. You can substitute it for any starch.
