Kenchin Vegetable Soup
Kenchin-style Vegetable Soup is a warming soup prepared from root vegetables grilled in sesame oil and simmered afterward in a konbu-seasoned bouillon. There can also be added soy sauce or miso, this giving the dish a stronger essence. The white powder on the top of dried kombu intensifies the flavor.
Natural and healthy, the Kenchin-style Vegetable Soup is made from fresh vegetables. For monks who spend most of their life in a severe self-discipline, this dish became a way of life and also a stimulating factor.
According to a Zen belief, dissolving a piece of tofu into the soup for everybody to share is a model of how the meal should be divided between the residents of a temple, no matter of their status.
