makes eight servings
25 grams (0.8 oz.) dried hijiki seaweed (150 grams (6oz.) rehydrated hijiki seaweed)
3 slices bacon
50 grams (1.8 oz.) carrots
3 dried shiitake mushrooms
3 tablespoons dashi broth, plus reserved soaking liquid of shiitake mushrooms
1 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoons mirin (sweet sake)

1 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons cooking oil
Put dried hijiki in a bowl. Wash them and soak in water for about 15
minutes, then drain. Thinly slice bacon. Cut carrot into thin strips.
Soak dried shiitake mushrooms in water until soft (reserve the soaking
liquid), remove stems, and slice thinly.
Heat cooking oil in a frying pan and saute seaweed, bacon, carrots and mushrooms. Add dashi, soy sauce, mirin, sake and maple syrup, and simmer until the liquid is almost gone.
Serve with rice. Garnish with sliced shiso leaves or chopped scallions (optional).
