Nanohana no Karashi Miso-ae (rape blossoms with spicy miso sauce)
This is a popular spring dish that is served at elegant kaiseki restaurants, and can easily be made in the West because rape blossoms (sometimes called rapini) are readily available. Try to select soft pieces with flower buds. I was told that Nanohana used to be a rare and expensive ingredient, and therefore, the style of serving still follows the old tradition of small portions served in beautiful tableware. RECIPE
