Okazu (side dish) for Hollywood Bowl...Donabe-steamed vegetables in miso sesame sauce

Here's one of the "okazu" (side dishes) I made to take to Hollywood Bowl last Sunday.

I simply piled up cubed yam, okra, and king oyster mushrooms on a grate in my super-handy microwavable donabe steam-roaster, "Tochinsai". It was covered and cooked in the microwave for 5 minutes (700-watt).

Then, These nicely steamed vegetables were tossed in my homemade miso-sesame sauce with some thinly-sliced radish. That was it, and the dish was great! I will post the miso-sesame sauce recipe next time.

Happy donabe life.
