French Onion Soup with Mochi



Heat the oil in a medium soup pot. Sauté the onions for 5 minutes until translucent. Add shiitake, water, kombu and bonito flakes to the pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the vinegar and fresh thyme. Simmer for 25 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, remove the thyme sprigs, kombu and shiitake. Add the sea salt and shoyu. Remove the stems from the shiitake, discard stems, slice caps thin, and set aside. Ladle the soup into 4 ovenproof earthenware soup bowls. Evenly sprinkle the grated mochi on top. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until the mochi melts like cheese. Remove and garnish with sliced shiitake, croutons and scallions before serving.
