    Colourful Smoked Ham Takikomigohan

    Fried Rice cooked with Ham is popular. Many people add Egg, Carrot and Peas to it, and the Fried Rice often turns very colourful. I tried to make a similar rice dish using my rice cooker. Place everything in the rice cooker’s inner pot and press the start button. That’s it! Super easy, energy efficient, …

    Overnight Pickled Vegetable Sticks

    I love Pickled Vegetables and I often snack them. However, store-bought Pickled Vegetables are often too sour and too salty for snacking. That’s why I make these Overnight Pickled Vegetable Sticks. I pack a small jar with Vegetable sticks, pour the pickle brine, and leave it in the fridge overnight. They are ready to enjoy …

    Pork ‘Nikujaga’ with Kombu (Kelp)

    ‘Nikujaga’ is the dish of ‘Niku’ (Meat) and ‘Jaga’ (Potato) cooked in sweet soy sauce flavoured broth. It is one of the most popular Japanese home-cooked dishes. Today I added Kombu (Kelp) to it. I think Pork is most suitable, but Chicken OR Beef can be used. You have never seen a dish like this …

  • Chicken Takikomigohan

    Chicken ‘Gomoku’ Takikomigohan

    ‘Takikomigohan’ is a Japanese dish of Rice that is cooked with other ingredients and seasonings. It is commonly seasoned with Dashi and Soy Sauce. ‘Gomoku’ (五目) means ‘various ingredients’, so it doesn’t have to be five ingredients, but I tend to use five ingredients. This is one of my favourite Japanese dishes and I cook …

  • Beans & Peas Sea Vegetables

    Simmered Chickpeas & Kombu (Kelp)

    I would have used Soy Beans for this dish, but I couldn’t find Large Dried Soy Beans. Chickpeas are always a great substitute. You can use Canned Chickpeas OR Edamame Beans instead. If you do so, you need to alter the cooking time. Kombu (Kelp) might be an unfamiliar sea vegetable for you. I like …

    Carrot & Pineapple Pancakes

    I have a really good ‘Carrot Cake’ recipe. My family members started calling it Hiroko’s Legendary Carrot Cake, so I have named it ‘My Legendary Carrot Cake’. Key ingredients include Pineapple and Sultanas. I added those to these pancakes. These pancakes are not very sweet, but they taste lovely. One day this recipe might be …

    Pan-fried Carrots

    Roasted Carrots are delicious, but heating up oven takes time and roasting Carrots takes time. I wanted to cook them more energy efficiently. Then I tried the pan-steam-frying method, which is my favourite way to cook Broccoli. Carrots need to be cooked longer than Broccoli, so I added more Water. I was absolutely satisfied with …

    Soba Noodle Salad

    This is a variation of my ‘Cold Ramen Noodle Salad’. Salad ingredients can be placed on top of noodles decoratively, but they can be mixed with the noodles like this one. Today I used Soba Noodles instead of Ramen Noodles. Rice Noodles are also good. This type of noodle salad dish is something I want …

    Beef Guinness Stew

    Beef Stew is a simple dish. You cook Beef and Vegetables in stock OR water until soft and season with Salt & Pepper. Guinness Beer is popularly used, and many people add Tomato Paste and Herbs. There are many different methods, and this is how I cook it. I have found it difficult to cook …

    Vegan ‘Okowa’ Glutinous Rice

    I often add Chicken OR Pork to this type of Glutinous Rice dish, but making it Vegan is easy. I used Abura-age (Fried Thin Tofu) for this Vegan version. It’s a good source of protein and a wonderful flavour comes out of it. I added Edamame as well, so this dish contains plenty of protein. …
