  • Beef Mazegohan Mushrooms

    Beef & Asian Mushroom Mazegohan with Gochujang

    ‘Mazegohan’ is a Japanese rice dish. Rice and other ingredients are cooked separately and mixed together. This is a Korean inspired ‘Mazegohan’ that I used Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) for seasoning. It’s spicy but only slightly. You might be interested in Japanese flavoured ‘Asian Mushroom Mazegohan’ and ‘Asian Mushrooms & Garlic Mazegohan’. Makes 4 Servings …

  • Beef Takikomigohan

    ‘Yakiniku’ Beef Takikomigohan

    ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce is a dipping sauce for Japanese style BBQ, but ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce can be used as a seasoning sauce for many dishes. The other day, I shared my Fried Rice recipe. This is a Takikomigohan recipe. Again, to season the dish, you only need ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce, nothing else. Using a rice cooker, this dish …

  • Beef Harusame & Rice Noodles Vegetables

    Stir-fried Beef & Harusame

    The thin noodles made from Potato starch or Mung Bean starch are called ‘Harusame’ in Japanese, but there are many different names in different countries. Many people pre-cook these noodles when stir-fry, but it is unnecessary. I don’t pre-cook them. Soak them in water while you are preparing other ingredients. The rehydrated ‘Harusame’ noodles can …

  • Donburi (Rice Bowl) Fish Vegetables

    Fried Fish & Vegetable Rice Bowl

    The Fish are seasoned with Salt & Pepper, fried and placed on top of the freshly cooked Rice. There are many sauces that go well with the Fish and Rice, but this is my favourite sauce. It is basically stir-fried Vegetables and Asian Mushrooms. Dashi stock is added and seasoned with Japanese staples, Soy Sauce …

  • Pork Vegetables

    San Choy Bau (Pork & Veggies in Lettuce Cups)

    The other day, I was requested to post my ‘San Choy Bau’ recipe on my website. I had shared my Vegan version, but I hadn’t shared my favourite Pork Mince version. So, here is my ‘San Choy Bau’. Iceberg Lettuce is popularly used for this dish, but it can be tricky to make cups. I …

  • Egg Pork

    Pork & Egg with Sweet & Sour Sauce

    This dish is a Pork version of my ‘Omelette with Sweet & Sour Sauce’, but it is even easier to prepare because you won’t cook Omelette. Cook Eggs separately into soft Scrambled Egg, then stir-fry Pork and Vegetables. Absolutely easy! Makes 2 to 3 Servings Ingredients 1/2 tablespoon Oil *I used Sesame Oil4 Eggs *whiskedSalt …

  • Bread Dough Vegetables

    Vegan Nikuman (Soy Protein Buns)

    My daughter asked me to make a Vegetarian version of Nikuman (Steamed Pork Buns). I challenged myself to make a Vegan version using Soy Protein. These buns are delicious, and even my meat-loving husband enjoyed them. You can find very reasonably priced Dry Soy Protein products at many Asian grocery stores. Supermarkets sell them, too. …

    Korean Inspired Stir-fry

    I named this stir-fry dish ‘Korean Inspired Stir-fry’ because I used Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso), however you can use your favourite Chilli Sauce instead.

  • Udon

    Miso Udon Soup

    ‘Hōtō’ Noodle Miso Soup is one of my favourite Noodle dishes. It requires quite an effort for me to cook it as I always make ‘Hōtō’ Noodles from scratch. This dish is very similar to ‘Hōtō’ but much easier to prepare. This recipe is for 1 serving, but it is easy to increase. Just cook …

  • Mushrooms Tofu & Soy Protein

    Hot Tofu with Mushroom Sauce

    This healthy and comforting dish is perfect for dinner on a cold day. It can be Vegan. Today I used Chicken Stock, but you can use plant-based stock. Use extra Soy Sauce instead of Oyster Sauce. You would need to add some Mirin or Sugar to add sweetness to the flavour. Hard Tofu is NOT …

    Halloween Zombie Bento

    In the Halloween season last year, I made ‘Zombie Cookies’. It was great fun making those Zombie faces with cookie dough. This year, I decided to make Zombie Bento (a packed lunch).
