    Tuna Mayo & Mixed Beans Salad

    The mixture of Canned Tuna, Japanese Mayonnaise and a little bit of Soy Sauce is delicious, and it can be used for a variety of dishes, particularly for salads. I often mix Edamame Beans (young Soy Beans) with it, but today I added Canned Mixed Beans as well. It turned out a delicious and nutritious …

    Edamame Mixed Beans Salad

    Frozen Edamame (Young Soy Beans) are available from many supermarket stores these days. Edamame is a great snack, and also a fantastic cooking ingredient. If you have never used Edamame for cooking before, Salad is the easiest option for you to try. I often mix Edamame with Canned Mixed Beans to make a salad. I …

    Butter Bean Paste Stuffed Puffs

    I often use canned Butter Beans for sweets as the sweetened Butter Bean Paste tastes very similar to Japanese ‘Shiro-an’ (Sweet White Bean Paste). Just like Sweet Azuki (Red Bean) Paste, it is a great filling for Buns, Rolls, Cakes and Pies. Today I added Cocoa, Sultanas and Walnuts, and simply sandwiched the mixture with …

    Pork, Chorizo & Black Bean Stew

    The other day I cooked my ‘Pork & Beans’ with just canned Tomatoes and Salt & Pepper for seasoning. The flavour was too bland and I decided to add Chorizo Sausage, and it instantly improved the flavour. Then I saw a picture of a Brazilian dish called ‘Feijoada’, that was almost identical to what I …

    Black Bean & ‘Yukari’ Glutinous Rice

    ‘Yukari (ゆかり)’ is a Furikake (Rice Seasoning) and it is made of dried Red Shiso leaves. When I cooked Glutinous Rice with Black Beans, I added it because the rice didn’t turn purple as I wished, and I thought the flavour of the rice was too bland. The rice tastes nicer and looks prettier with …

    Soy Meat Thai Red Curry

    Soy Meat works well in curries. When it is cooked in plenty of sauce that has a strong flavour, you won’t even notice it is Soy protein. To reduce my meat-loving family’s consumption of meat, the fillet type Soy Meat is a good alternative and everyone enjoyed this Thai Curry. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 80g …

    Kimchi & Sweet Potato Salad

    On the other day, when I shared my ‘Kimchi Potato’ recipe on my Facebook page, a Canadian man posted his comment that he loved Kimchi & Sweet Potato. He also posted a photo of a dish of Kimchi & Sweet Potato that he cooked. That photo inspired me to make this recipe. Kimchi & Sweet …

    Vegan Chilli Con Carne

    When I was planning a vegan Christmas lunch last year, I bought Dry Soy Meat at a local Asian grocery store. On the other day, I finally used it to make ‘Vegan Soy Meat Soboro Don’ and it was delicious. Today I tried another minced meat dish. It’s ‘Chilli Con Carne’. I knew it would …

    Mixed Grains & Black Bean Salad

    I cooked Mixed Grain today. Because I added some Black Rice, it turned purple. I was planning to make a Rice Salad, but the colour of the Mixed Grains reminded me my ‘Cuban Black Beans’, and I ended up making this salad. Because it was so good, I am now writing down how I made …

    Chilli Con Carne Soup

    I was making Tomato Soup and I wanted to add leftover cooked Barley to it. Then I decided to add some beans as well. The soup looked like ‘Chilli Con Carne’, so I added the spices that I use to make Chilli Con Carne. The result was excellent. I could have added some Jalapeño. Makes …

    Green Vegetable Soup

    Don’t judge it by its colour. This soup is absolutely delicious! I first made this soup by adding some green vegetables to ‘My Mother’s Potato Soup’ to make it more nutritious. You should add as many different green vegetables as you have. I love to add Broad Beans that makes a huge difference. The more …

    Butter Beans Brownie

    I often use ‘Beans’ to make sweets. Azuki (Red Bean) is an important ingredient for Japanese sweets. Butter Bean is more versatile. I have shared my ‘Butter Beans Chocolate Truffles’ and ‘Butter Bean Spread’ recipes on this website. Today I made this Brownie with Butter Beans. It is gluten-free as I added no flour. Cake …
