If you are vegetarian, I recommend to use ‘Atsu-age’ (fried firm Tofu) instead of Chicken. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 1 block (250g) Konnyaku (Konjac)300 to 400g …

    None of my family members would enjoy this dish, because they hate Wasabi. I like Wasabi and I want the Wasabi flavour of the sauce quite strong. Today I added 2 teaspoons.

    Hoisin Pork Sauce

    To make my ‘Spicy Meat Sauce’, I use Red Miso (dark coloured Japanese Miso) and Soy Sauce. The other day I added Hoisin Sauce as well, just because I needed to use it up. The sauce was so good and inspired me to make this Pork Sauce. This meat sauce can be enjoyed with freshly …

    Vegan Soy Meat & Cabbage Miso Stir-fry

    When you use fillet type Soy Meat (Soy Protein) for stir-fry, you must marinate them. Otherwise, Soy Meat fillets would be bland and dry. This is the dish I usually cook with thinly sliced Pork. I only use a very small amount Oil when I cook this dish with Pork, but I needed to add …
