    Chicken & Beans

    On the other day I cooked ‘Pork & Beans’ replacing Pork with Chicken, and it was delicious. If you don’t eat Pork with any reasons, you may wish to try this ‘Chicken & Beans’. Today I added more Vegetables including Celery, and Tabasco for a little kick in the flavour, and this dish turned out …

    Nattō is fermented soy beans and naturally it is very nutritious. Many people eat it with hot steamy rice for breakfast. I love it with finely chopped fresh Spring Onions. Do you like Nattō?

  • Beans & Peas Mazegohan

    Crunchy Nattō Mazegohan

    If you are thinking to cook Nattō Fried Rice, try this Mazegohan instead. I much prefer Nattō Mazegohan to Fried Rice. To make this Mazegoan, you just mix the ingredients with cooked rice, just like rice salad. The dish tastes great, nutritiously excellent, and healthy. And easy to make!!!

  • Beans & Peas Curry Fish

    Canned Tuna & Peas Curry

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

    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 …

    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 …

  • Beans & Peas Tofu

    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 …
