    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 …

    Roast Beef & Watercress Rolls

    This is a good appetiser for parties or when entertaining friends. ‘Beef & Watercress’ is one of my favourite food combinations and I like to serve them with Wasabi & Ponzu sauce.

Don’t worry because it won’t be peppery as Watercress will be cooked …

    Watercress Wasabi-ae

    Watercress & Tuna Salad

    Watercress is one of my top 5 vegetables. I love its peppery flavour. Watercress is always brilliant for salads but this salad is different. It’s a Japanese ‘Ae-mono’ style salad. Vegetables are often quickly blanched before dressed. In that way, the pepperiness is mild and more suitable to eat with rice. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients …
