“My oldest son loves a Japanese restaurant in Springfield, Missouri named Nakato's. His favorite of all is their Japanese onion soup. After trial & error in the kitchen, I came up with this recipe that my son says is almost a perfect match for his favorite soup. While the restaurant removes almost all the veggies before serving, we actually prefer leaving them in. Enjoy!”
