Daikon is the tiny cubed white vegetable in miso soup. In Punjabi cuisine, it is called "mooli," and in Eastern Europe it is "white radish," often served with sour cream dressings. An extremely versatile vegetable that takes well to being cooked, pickled, or eaten raw.

1 tablespoon butter (or more as needed)
1–2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped (optional)
Salt to taste (start with 1/4 teaspoon or so)

1 small onion diced
1/4 cup rice wine or white wine vinegar
