•New (Spring) cabbage: 4 leaves

•Wasabi: 1/2 teaspoon (grated)
-Cut out the middle stringy core off the cabbage leaves. Wash them in clear cold water, taking care not to break them. Lay on a tray and cover with cellophane paper. Cook in a microwave oven for 3~4 minutes.
-Cut the carrot into thin 6 sticks in a length equal to that of the aburaage and 1 cm square thick. Lay on a tray, sprinkle with a little water and cook in icrowave oven for 2 minutes.
-Cut the aburaage in halves along their length and open.
-Drain the cabbage well and sponge off any water with kitchen paper.
Put two leaves each on top of each other and cut edges as to leave enough cabbage surface to be slightly wider than the aburaage.
-Lay the open aburaage on top of the cabbage leaves. Lay the carrot sticks on top of the aburaage from the inside edge. Roll the lot away from you with a firm hand. Keep aside.
-In a pan just large enough to contain two cabbage rolls drop in the water, Japanese sake, mirin and dashi. Heat and place the rolls inside “heads up”.
-Cover the whole with foil paper. Put the lid on top and food on a low fire for 10 minutes.
-Turn the cabbage rolls over and cook for 10 more minutes.
-Take the two rolls out and cut each into two equal halves. Place on a serving dish.
-Heat and check the taste of the soup and adjust if necessary. Add the wasabi and mix well.-Add some cornstarch dissolved in water and stir until syrupy. Pour the sweet and sour wasabi dressing on the rolls. Topp with some chopped green leaves and serve
