    Canned Tuna & Peas Curry

    Nutritious and yummy meals can be made quite cheaply. To cook this curry, you only need 3 main ingredients, 1 small Canned Tuna, 1 Onion and 1 cup Frozen Peas. I recommend to use ‘Tuna in Springwater’ for this dish. If you use ‘Tuna in Brine’, you need to alter the amount of Soy Sauce …

    Soy Sauce Marinated Edamame

    These yummy Edamame beans are great for snack or side dish for alcoholic drinks. They can be mixed with freshly cooked Rice, or mixed with other vegetables such as Daikon or Cucumber to make a salad. Flavour can be anything you like. Today I add Wasabi and enjoyed them with chilled Sake. Ingredients 1 cup …

    Nattō & Potato Pancakes

    This savoury pancake recipe is similar to my ‘Potato & Smoked Salmon Pancakes’. It is grated-potato-base pancake, and this time I added Nattō (fermented soybeans). OK!!! I know some people never wish to eat it because its strong smell (you may call it ‘odour’) and slimy texture. If you like Nattō, you will definitely enjoy these …

    Chickpeas Pulp & Vegetables

    Soy Bean Pulp, that is produced in the production of Tofu and Soy Milk, is called ‘Okara’ in Japanese. It is part of the traditional Japanese cuisine. The most popular dish is ‘Unohana’, that is ‘Okara’ cooked with vegetables and seasoned with Soy Sauce, Sugar and Mirin. I cook it using Chickpea Pulp on the …

    Chickpea Tofu

    I am lucky to have a good access to a variety of Tofu which I love. If I had no access, I would miss Tofu so badly and try to make it by myself. However, it is not easy to make Tofu from Soy Beans. Chickpea Tofu is easy to make if you have dry …

  • Beans & Peas Pork

    Pork & Beans

    I first cooked this dish for my children when they were young, so it is sweet and not spicy. For grown-ups, I recommend to use less Ketchup and add Chilli or Tabasco. You may wish to add Coriander or Parsley as well, but I used to hesitate to add any green leaves because one of …

    Edamame & Watercress Dip

    I have introduced my ‘Edamame & Cream Cheese Dip’ and ‘Edamame & Avocado Dip’ recipes on this website. Those dips are delicious but I always thought something tangy would be nice in Edamame Dip. On the other day, when I was washing Watercress for salad, I thought the very peppery flavour of Watercress, which I …

    Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas

    Roasted peas and beans, sometimes fried, are popular snack in Japan. But here in Melbourne where I live, I don’t see them. Nuts are popular, though. I wonder why Australian don’t eat roasted peas and beans. You can find my ‘Healthy Soy Bean Nibbles’ recipe on this website. This is another healthy and inexpensive recipe. …

    Curry Chilli Con Carne

    When I am too tired to think about dinner menu, I tend to cook some same easy dishes that I have been repeatedly cooking. ‘Chilli Con Carne’ is one of them. And Curry is another. This time, I combined those two dishes. I simply replaced the spices for Chilli Con Carne with Curry powder. It …

    Mixed Beans Wasabi Mayo Salad

    ‘Canned Mixed Beans (Four Beans), Edamame and Carrot’ is my favourite combination for a quick bean salad. Sometimes I add other salad vegetables such as Cucumber and Lettuce. Dress the salad with various dressings, but this is my absolute favourite. It’s ‘Japanese Mayonnaise, Soy Sauce and Wasabi’. If you don’t like Wasabi, try Garlic Chilli …
