Guess who with Carla
Cooking with Elfman
Five Flavored Soup
1 Sheet Kombu
10-12 Dried Shiitake Mushrooms
6 Cups Water
5-7 Leaves Napa Cabbage
1 1/2 Cup Broad Beans
A couple pinches of Wakame
1 Asian Pear, chopped finely
3-5 Green Onions, finely chopped
10 Cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 cup Soy Sauce (or to taste)
1/2 cup Ponzu Sauce
1 tbs. Garlic Chili Sauce (or to taste)
1 tbs. Mirin
2 tbs. Chinese Five Spice
Start the broth by putting the water and the sheet of Kombu into a large soup pot. Bring the water to a simmer, and then add the dried mushrooms, two tablespoons of the minced garlic, and a couple slices of ginger root. Bring the broth to a boil, then reduce the heat and allow the broth to simmer while you prepare the wonton filling. Chop up half a cup of the broad beans into tiny pieces. Remove one or two of the mushrooms from the broth and chop them finely too. Take one or two leaves of the Napa Cabbage and chop that finely. In a small mixing bowl, add the chopped mushrooms, chopped beans and copped cabbage along with the green onions, Asian pear and remaining garlic and mix this thoroughly together. Season mixture with some soy sauce and grated ginger to taste. Heat up a frying pan with the the oil of your choice, and fry the mixture until nicely browned. Start building your wontons following these instructions. Only make enough wontons that you will be using right away, about 2-3 per bowl. It is not a good idea to make them all at once and do not add the wontons directly to the soup. In a separate pot from your broth, boil the wontons in some salted water until they are translucent. Remove them with a slotted spoon and place them in your serving bowls. Reduce the heat on the broth and remove the kombu and ginger, but keep the mushrooms. Add the soy sauce, ponzu sauce, mirin and chili garlic sauce to the broth and stir. Taste it, and add more of the ingredients you think it needs until the broth tastes right to you. This might be different for everyone. When the broth is too your liking, add the the remaining broad beans, the napa cabbage and the wakame. Be careful with wakame because it expands a lot, a little goes a very long way. Let the soup simmer for another 5 to ten minutes. Your soup is pretty much done now, so spoon the soup into the serving bowls over the wontons and enjoy!

On this episode of the podcast we continued with Future Shock. Click the link below to read along as the crew dubs this weeks fan fiction.
This weeks fanart is titled The Distance Apart by Jatearica. This fanart got a rating of (in bra sizes) 3 = C 3 = D. Natsu thought that the Happy pillow and the dragon plush was cute. Jellal thought the positioning was well done, but the flow of the art was not consistent. Happy thought that it was a warm looking photo and even made up her own word for it. Carla thought that they could not make up their mind if they wanted to use a texture or not. Lucy thought the play on the lighting was well done, but that her shoulders and arms looked a little un proportional to her head. Juvia thought that her hand that she was laying on looked a little odd and the shadowing was off.
