Mooli or daikon is a mild Japanese white radish. It is eaten raw just like american radishes and is also cooked in soups and stews. Sometimes it is used as a tenderizer. When cooked with octopus and squid it is suppose to make them less chewy.
Don't be fooled by its carrot looks. It is really a radish.
Here's a recipe for miso with daikon

  • 3 1/3 cups dashi soup stock

  • 4 inches daikon

  • 3-4 tbsps miso paste

Put dashi soup stock in a pan. Cut daikon into thin and long slices and add them to the soup. Simmer daikon slices until soften. Scoop out some soup stock from the pan and dissolve miso paste in it. Return the soup in the pan and stir well. Remember not to boil the soup after you put miso in.
