    ‘Kimpira’ Asparagus

    Parsley has grown like a jungle in my herb garden. I decided to make Tabbouleh, so that I can use a lot of Parsley. I love Tabbouleh, but it is not very popular among my family members as they don’t like the overwhelming Parsley and Mint. So I added Green Vegetables they like, such as …

    Pan-fried Cheesy Asparagus

    Many people cook this dish in the oven, but I don’t want to heat up the oven just to make this dish. Pan-frying is more energy-efficient. The top of the cheese won’t get browned when cooked in a frying pan, but the bottom gets browned. For an everyday meal, this is good enough for me. …

    Asparagus & Egg Mazegohan

    My ‘Asparagus Butter Takikomigohan’ is delicious, but Asparagus turns quite soft as it is cooked with Rice. Then I created this Mazegohan version. Asparagus is mixed with cooked Rice, so it retains crunchiness. It is Butter & Soy Sauce flavoured. I am very happy with the result. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 2 cups (*180ml cup) …
