Purple ‘witch’ hot pot is a thing in Japan right now



Of all the yummy colours a soup could be, perhaps purple isn’t high up on the ranks.

But as winter comes early to parts of Japan, the “witch” hot pot (majo nabe, or 魔女鍋 in Japanese) is starting to trend on social media.

The toxic-looking brew is purple from all the purple veggies that go into it: purple cabbage, yams, broccoli, to name a few.
