    Tabbouleh & Green Vegetables Salad

    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 …

    Edamame & Fetta Cheese Salad

    Edamame, young Soy Beans, has become so popular and it is widely available in Australia. I often purchase Frozen Edamame Beans that are already removed from pods.

    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 …

    Scrumptious Fried Edamame (Soy Beans)

    Here is another great dish for drinking. Of course it is great with freshly cooked rice, too. You can use Canned Soy Beans, but I like crunchy Edamame Beans better.

    Fried Fishcakes with Prawn & Edamame

    When I was young and still living in Japan, I was very fond of this deep-fried Fishcake that was called ‘Ebi-yose Fry’, a frozen food product by well-known company ‘Ajinomoto’. The only way to eat it now where I live is making it by myself. If you can make ‘Surimi’ (Fish Paste), it’s easy to …

    Zucchini & Edamame Okonomiyaki

    There had been a large Zucchini in the fridge for a while, and I had to use it sooner. I decided to make Okonomiyaki using it. It turned out the softest and fluffiest Okonomiyaki I ever cooked. I added Edamame, but you can add Prawns, Squid, Bacon, Ham, OR etc. Pan-frying would be a quick …

    Snow Peas, Edamame & Tuna Salad

    I had never eaten uncooked Snow Peas until I tried it in Australia. I instantly fell in love with the Australian juicy Snow Peas. If the Snow Peas in your country need to be cooked, just blanch them as they should be crunchy in this salad. I definitely won’t cook them. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients …

    This salad is perfect for sandwich filling. I didn’t like the egg salad sandwich for a long time until I made this egg salad. This ‘Edamame & Egg Salad’ tastes like my Tartar Sauce, and the crunchy Edamame (young soy beans) are so good. If you can’t find Edamame where you live, Peas can be …

    Oven-baked Okonomiyaki with Ham & Egg

    It takes time to cook ‘Okonomiyaki’, especially when you make many. When I cook it for whole family, I bake one large Okonomiyaki in the oven. Today’s Okonomiyaki is about 40 x 30cm. Such a jumbo Okonomiyaki can’t be flipped over, but I don’t need to to do so as I bake it in the …
