  • Hot Pot & Hot Plate

    Oden

    ‘Oden’ is a Japanese hot pot dish of several ingredients simmered in the seasoned dashi stock. The essential ingredients are Fishcakes such as Chikuwa and Fish Balls. I always add Daikon, Potato, Boiled Eggs, Konnyaku (Konjac) and Beef Tendon skewers. Beef Tendon is hard to find where I live, I often use Ossobuco (Veal Shanks) …

    Hash Brown Potatoes & Chickpeas

    I know Hash Browns are not very good for my health, but I love them. This is my attempt to make the ‘not-healthy’ food into ‘less-unhealthy’ food. I added Chickpeas to Hash Browns. To make them crispy, you need a reasonable amount oil to cook, but you can cook them like pancakes, if you don’t …

    Broccoli, Potato & Oats Soup

    This creamy soup has no dairy product added. I didn’t add Flour either. The soup is thick and creamy because of Oats. My ‘Miso Oats Porridge’ inspired me to make this soup. Adding Oats is absolutely the easiest way to make a soup thick and creamy. You may wish to use Butter and Milk, add …

    Vegan Soy Meat Curry

    Mice type Soy Meat (Soy Protein) is perfect for my ‘Clean-Up-Fridge Curry’. I usually use minced Beef or Pork, but this is a really good Vegan alternative. My meat-loving husband would’t notice this is Soy Meat curry. The recipe is almost identical, but you need to add more liquid as Soy Meat is quite dry …

    Spicy Pork & Potato Soup

    This is a very simply soup. Naturally you can add other Vegetables and Mushrooms. To add the spiciness, I used Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso). I am not very good with Chilli, but 1 tablespoon, which seems a lot to me, was a good amount that created enjoyable spiciness. Makes 2 Servings Ingredients 1 to 2 …

    Leek & Pork Miso Soup

    Leek is a European vegetable, but I have found its mild flavour is suitable for Japanese dishes. Miso Soup is an example. Today I used Leek for ‘Butajiru’, that is a type of Miso Soup with Pork. It’s so comforting and also filling. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 4 cups Soup Stock of your choice *Today …

    Vegan Cottage Pie

    Since my discovery of Dry Soy Meat (Mince Type) at a local Asian grocery store, I have been cooking mince dishes replacing the mince with Soy Meat.

    My Family’s Potato Salad is a special salad for us. Everyone loves it and it always reminds us my mother’s kitchen. It is not hard to make but it is time consuming. This ‘Broccoli Potato Salad’ is almost identical but much easier to prepare as I don’t mash the Potatoes. A whole head of Broccoli …

    Quick & Cheesy Broccoli Potato

    I saw a lovely looking dish of roasted Broccoli and Potatoes that were mixed with Garlic and Anchovy. Sounds really good, doesn’t it? But, I didn’t want to use the oven. If it is just Broccoli, I would cook it in a frying pan. But I needed to cook Potatoes as well. So, I boiled …

    Sushi Vinegar Potato Chips

    I love Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips. On the other day, I searched for the recipes on the internet, and discovered most recipes require a lot of Vinegar, 2 to 3 cups of it, to soak the Potato slices. No way!!! We Japanese know a famous food product called ‘Sushinoko’, that is the powdered Sushi …
