    Cauliflower Soup

    Vegetable Soup is easy to make and warm us on cold days. My mother used to make Creamy Potato Soup for my sisters and me. I simply added Cauliflower to that soup. The texture is lighter than her Potato Soup and I like this soup with freshly cracked Black Pepper. Again, I don’t use Oil. …

    My Pumpkin Soup

    Here is the recipe written for my son and daughter to make their mother’s ‘Pumpkin Soup’. I never use Oil for this soup. Just like cooking Japanese soup, I simply cook vegetables in stock.

    Chicken Cream Stew

    ‘Cream Stew’ is a very popular dish in Japan. When the weather is getting cold, we often see TV ads of ready-made cream stew roux and we start to crave for the dish. My children loved it when they were young. And now? They still love it. I don’t use read-made roux. It’s a quite …

    Steamed Savoury Turnip Meringue & Fish

    It’s getting cold in Melbourne. Warm dishes are more enjoyable. I have posted some Japanese winter dish recipes such as ‘Furofuki Daikon’, simmered Daikon radish with sweet miso sauce.

    As the authentic Kimchi is available form a Korean grocery store in the area where I live, I am using Kimchi for a variety of dishes. This spicy soup is a great dish to warm up on a cold day. Adding rice noodles or Harusame noodles, it can be enjoyed as a noodle soup. This …

    Tomato and Carrot Soup

    Sometimes a failure leads me to a success. On the other day I made Carrot Soup without butter and cream because my daughter doesn’t want to eat them. The soup was not as nice as the one with butter and cream. Then I thought that tomato flavour would make the healthy version of carrot soup …

    Carrot Soup

    This Carrot Soup tastes as good as my Pumpkin Soup, which is my daughter’s favourite. A few humble ingredients turn into such a wonderful soup but ‘Carrot Soup’ seems not very popular at all in Australia. Have you ever tried ‘Carrot Soup’ before? Makes 2 to 4 Servings Ingredients Carrots 2 Onion 1 large one …

    Zōsui with Dumplings

    My mother used to make Zōsui to finish off bits and pieces of leftover vegetables and cooked rice. To make this soup more filling, she often added some dumplings which I loved. Omochi is also very nice in this soup but they are not available always, so she used to make simple wheat flour-base dumplings. …
