    Garlic Chives & Black Fungus

    Garlic Chives and Black Fungus is a winning combination. This dish was originally a salad. Garlic Chives and Black Fungus are supposed to be blanched, then dressed with the sauce. However, it is easier for me to stir-fry instead of blanching and squeezing. The result is almost identical, but this stir-fried version is naturally less …

    Japanese Mushroom Sauce & Fish

    This mushroom sauce is good with Fish, but also good with Tofu or Chicken. Cook those proteins simply with Salt and Pepper, or you don’t need to cook Tofu. Today I pan-fried the Fish Fillets after coating them with Flour. You can steam, grill or deep-fry. This sauce makes the simple fish into an extra …

    Kara-age Chicken Breasts

    My husband still says he hates Chicken Breasts because they are dry. Chicken Breasts are not necessarily dry. That depends on how to cook them. For ‘Kara-age’ (Japanese Fried Chicken), marinate them this way. And follow this recipe. Fried Chicken Breasts will be juicy and tender. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 2 skinless Chicken Breast Fillets …

  • Donburi (Rice Bowl) Tofu & Soy Protein

    Kōya Dōfu Soboro

    Tofu is an excellent plant-based protein. Kōya Dōfu (Freeze-dried Tofu) has meat-like texture and it is a good meat substitute. Today I cooked finely chopped Kōya Dōfu in the same way as ‘Chicken Soboro’. However, you can’t cook in exactly same way because Kōya Dōfu is very dry. You need to add Dashi Stock. Makes …

    Soba Inari

    Probably you are familiar with a Sushi called ‘Inari-zushi’, which is Sushi Rice wrapped in seasoned Abura-age (Thin Fried Tofu). This is the Soba Noodle version of it and it is quite popular in Japan. Soba Noodles are seasoned with ‘Mentsuyu’ (Noodle Dipping Sauce). It is very easy to prepare. Makes 12 Pieces Ingredients 2 …

  • Bread Dough

    My Bao Buns

    Are Bao Buns supposed to be sweet? Store-bought Bao Buns are too sweet for me. I made less sweet Bao Buns based on my dough for Nikuman (Steamed Pork Buns). Add 1 to 2 tablespoons Sugar. 2 tablespoons is quite a lot, but still much less sweet than store-bought ones. If you bake Bread regularly, …

    Nori Takikomigohan

    Nori (Seaweed Sheet) is not only for wrapping Sushi or Onigiri (Rice Balls). Nori can be used for many dishes such as ‘Scrambled Egg & Nori’ and ‘Stir-fried Broccoli & Nori’. Nori is basically a soft sea plant processed into dried sheets. Here is another way to use it. Cook Rice and Nori together. Makes …

    Scrumptious Dried Sardines & Walnuts

    These dried infant Sardines can be found at Japanese or Asian grocery stores as ‘Niboshi’ or ‘Iriko’. ‘Niboshi’ is a very popular ingredient for Japanese home cooking, but it’s so hard to find where I live. Yesterday I found a bag of ‘Niboshi’ at a nearby Korean grocery store! I bought it and cooked this …

    Soboro Mixed Inari-zushi

    In Japan, when we make Inari-zushi, that is Sushi Rice wrapped in seasoned Abura-age (Thin Fried Tofu), we often mix some extra ingredients with Sushi Rice. Common ingredients are hard to find where I live, so I mixed ‘Soboro’ made with Chicken Mince or Pork Mince. Makes 12 Pieces Ingredients 2 cups (180ml cup) Japanese …

    Chicken Nanban-zuke

    ‘Nanban-zuke’ is a Japanese dish of marinated fried fish. I usually use fish called ‘Aji’ but other meaty fish are also suitable. Chicken Breast is a popular alternative.

  • Miso Soup Spaghetti & Pasta

    Gnocchi Miso Soup

    Dumplings made of rice flour is a popular ingredient for Miso Soup. However, I have found ‘Gnocchi’ is a superior alternative to the rice flour dumplings. Miso Soup with Gnocchi can be a very filling meal. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 4 cups Dashi Stock OR Stock of your choice*Note: Use about 2 teaspoons Dashi Powder …

  • Gyoza Pork Tofu & Soy Protein

    Gluten-free ‘Abura-age’ Gyoza

    If you can’t eat wheat flour and have given up eating Gyoza because of that, you might wish to try this alternative. Instead of wrapping the filling with Gyoza wrappers, I sandwiched the filling with ‘Abura-age’, Fried Thin Tofu. This recipe includes a very basic Pork filling, but you can find more Gyoza filling recipes …
