Hydrate Frozen Tofu ,Hijiki and Daikon in water for 10mins. Simmer with Soya sauce, sugar and mirin for 10mins.
This is a Tofu version of hot pot. Mizuna and Spring onion are the company of Tofu!
Very earthy dish as using many rooted vegetables… Kintoki Carrots, Lotus roots, Bamboo shoot and Runner beans. Chop Vegetables and fry them before adding Dashi.
It’s really thrilled to use something left over food.
Just adding Dashi and Udon to a Japanese curry I cooked last night.
Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit. It has slightly bitter taste and amazing aroma and can be add to many dishes. To make jam, just wash and slice the skins and simmer with unrefined sugar. Great to have it as a hot drink, simply adding hot water.
Typical Japanese rice dish. Add konjac, burdock, carrot and usuage or beacurd and some condiments.
2mins simple dish. Simply boil soybeans sprouts and sprinkle soy sauce, sesame oil and chopped coriander.
I found Gobo or Burdock in Asian shop near by today so decided to cook this classic dish. Use knife or peeler for slicing Burdock and soak it in water for few minuets until the water become dark. This way to get rid of harshness of the roots. Slice carrot to similar sizes too. Fry them with sesame seed oil, add chopped of chili, unrefined sugar and soy sauce. You can still enjoy it cold next day too! 🙂
I love the colour of green. Yomogi or Mugwort’s great aroma gives me an extra appetite! Add adzuki bean paste inside as well.
Used glutinous rice flour,unrefined sugar and yomogi powder for the base.
I was talking with my 90 years old granny yesterday. Adzuki bean paste is one of her favourite sweets. Her passion towards Adzuki inspired me to cook this. However I couldn’t find adzuki beans in my cupboard but kidney beans so give a go! To my surprise, its very similar to adzuki and wouldn’t notice the different if somebody served me as a adzuki!
- A tin of kidney beans
- 20g of unrefined sugar
Drain water of the tin and place the beans in a sauce pan. Add sugar and simmer for about 15mins. Mash the paste. Sieve it with a cheese cloth if you prefer a smoother taste.
