We Gather Together
Nabe is a popular Japanese dish, especially during the cold weather.
Nabe (pronounced Nah-beh) is actually the name of the pot that the dish is being cooked in. But it is also used to describe this type of dish.
The type of nabe in the photo is called Mizu-taki (水炊き), which stews mostly chicken and vegetables in the pot and when done, we take it and dip it in a little bowl we each have filled with a type of sauce, and eat. Yum!
Not only are these nabe dishes quite healthy but people in Japan believe that eating from the same dish brings us closer together, too!
