2020 Oshogatsu ozoni

Submitted by: Vicky Murakami-Tsuda (California, USA)

Every year, my mother makes ozoni on New Year’s Day. It’s the first breakfast I eat every year. She makes a pretty simple version. It has a clear broth, and she makes it with carrots and daikon cut into flower shapes (she has shape cutters), tofu, mizuna, nappa, and of course, mochi! This was my first bowl of ozoni  in 2020. I took the photo before I added the strips of nori (seaweed) and green onion garnishes.
