This is healthy dessert is made without sugar, but is lifted by the natural sweetness of Mikawa Mirin. Mikawa Mirin is matured over an extended period of time, so it can be transformed into a rich, deep, caramel-like syrup simply by burning off the alcohol content. Elegantly sweet, this dessert will appeal to adult and child alike. This recipe is by Komaki Fujii, a specialist in Shojin Ryori (vegetarian Buddhist cuisine).


  • 200ml Mitoku Organic Mikawa Mirin
  • 5g kanten
  • 150ml water
  • 300ml soy milk
  • 4 strawberries
