    Spinach & Coriander Curry

    Using the same method of caramelising the onions quickly for ‘French Onion Soup’ and frozen Spinach, you can make this curry very easily. If you don’t enjoy Coriander, just add more Spinach or other green vegetables such as Kale. The green beans in the photo are Edamame (young soy beans) for the crunchy texture. You …

    Tuna Spinach Rice Bowl

    I recommend you to stock a bag of rice in your kitchen for always. Canned Tuna are often on sale at supermarkets, stock them as well. Already washed and ready to serve Baby Spinach Leaves are very handy to have in the fridge. Of course you must have Eggs. Then you can create such a …

  • Egg Vegetables

    Just Spinach & Eggs

    My very first cooking class was in the fifth grade. We cooked ‘Sautéed Spinach’ and ‘Boiled Eggs’. ‘Scrambled Eggs’ is actually easier than ‘Boiled Eggs’. To keep the colour of the scrambled eggs, cook Eggs and Spinach separately. After they are combined gently and placed on a plate, drizzle the sauce over instead of mixing …

  • Shirataki & Itokonnyaku Vegetables

    Spicy ‘Goma-ae’ Spinach

    My family’s favourite ‘Goma-ae Spinach’ sometimes turns to this spicy ‘Goma-ae’ with Itokonnyaku/Shirataki for a change. Itokonnyaku or Shirataki is basically same as Konnyaku/Konjac made from grated Konnyaku Potatoes. They are very low in calories and good source of dietary fiber.

    Baby Spinach & Potato Salad

    I like my Yoghurt Dressing that I created for the Kale Coleslaw. Then I used it for the potato salad instead of Japanese mayonnaise. I found the coleslaw dressing was a bit too sweet for the potatoes and it needed herbs. I thought Dill would go well with the yoghurt! That’s how I ended up …

  • Beef Mazegohan Vegetables

    Bibimbap-Inspired Beef Mazegohan

    As you know, ‘Bibimbap’ is a Korean dish, and the word literally means ‘Mixed Rice’ which is same as ‘Mazegohan’ in Japanese. I particularly like ‘Hot Stone Pot Bibimbap’ that is served in a very hot stone bowl. The stone bowl is so hot that anything that touches it sizzles, and the rice becomes browned …

    ‘Kurumi-ae’ Spinach with Walnut Sauce

    ‘Kurumi’ means walnuts in Japanese. ‘Kurimi-ae’ is a dish of vegetables dressed with sweet soy sauce base ’Walnut Sauce’, that is very similar to ‘Goma-ae’ Sauce. I always toast walnuts first to get rid of unpleasant bitterness. As you know, walnuts are widely recognised as nutrient-dense food. This dish is absolutely nutritious as well as …
