Boiled Broccoli and Avocado dipped in sauce

A side dish served between main courses (箸休め) is really important for Japanese-style meal.  It makes you refresh during eating and also showes to advantage the deliciousness so much.  Actually my mom made so many kind of side dished every dinner time.  I would to show not only main dished but also side dished served between main courses from now on!

As a first side dished in Poppin' kitchen, I would like to show my favorite side dish which has an avocado I really love!  Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to make dash (Japanese soup stock) today so I used just a soup stock (dashi) powder this time.

Next time I wanna show you how to make dashi also!
