Green Fox Soba Soup
緑のきつね蕎麦

Soba noodle soup is one of my favorite lunch dishes. Growing up in Japan, I ate a lot of noodle soup for lunch. One of the reasons was that I was a huge noodle fan, but when I was old enough to use the stove, noodle soup was one of the easiest to make myself. […]

Seoul Yakisoba Fried Noodles with Fried “Egg”
ソウルな焼きそば、目玉焼きのっけ。

Love pan fried noodles. This time I added a lot of Korean flavors, like gochujang and kimchi. It turned out delicious! But this plant-based fried “egg” made the dish even more special. I devoured it!

V-Caviar Pasta
Vキャビアパスタ

People, this is a game-changer! Who knew you can eat “caviar” as a plant-eater. This vegan caviar is amazing. It’s made with seaweed, so this definitely has the “ocean” taste associated with caviar, and the look and the texture are also very satisfying. Even if you are not a caviar person, you have to admit […]

Double Purple Gnocchi
ダブル紫ニョッキ

I love purple potato. From its color to taste. I usually buy purple potatoes either at Whole Foods (above) or Ha Tien Supermarket (below). As you can see they look very different. Their inside has very different colors as their skin. I knew they were slightly different, but when you compare them side by side […]

Veggie Supreme Coconut Curry Noodle Soup

I love soup, and I love noodles. So a bowl of noodle soup always makes me happy. Coconut curry is one of my favorite noodle soup. It’s super flavorful, and it’s rich in flavor.

Veggie Noodles with Sweet and Spicy Glaze

As I said before many times, I love noodles. Noodles. Zucchini and eggplant. Sweet and spicy glaze. YUM!

Black bean Tea Soba
黒豆茶そば

I’ve been always a big noodle person, and I’m always up for good noodle soup. Remember this  Japanese black bean tea? I had extra tea and beans kept in the freezer, and I thought it would be interesting to make them into a soba noodle dish. I did add some stuff to the tea to […]

Vegan Carbonara with Saucy Ratatouille
Vカルボナーラ、ラタトゥイユソース添え

Carbonara was not particularly a favorite pasta dish of mine prior to my switch to the plant-based diet. But it was one of those foods that I would have craving for once in a while. That craving still sometimes comes. So I decided to make Vegan version of carbonara. The trick is really to get […]

Hearty Udon Noodle Soup
ほっこりすき煮うどん

Okay. I know I’ve been talking about spring on it way for a while. But this week it really finally feels like spring is coming VERY SOON. The weather forecast says we are going to have temperature finally above 50!! So excited. However, today it’s still below 32F in the Twin Cities, and this hearty […]

Mapo Tofu Ramen
麻婆豆腐ラーメン

I love Mapo Tofu, and I love ramen. So this is a no-brainer for me! The soup was made with slightly burned and caramelized onions and garlic, water, Kombu seaweed, soy sauce, salt, sugar, and hot pepper flakes (picture above). The main ingredients of the “meat” part of this “Mapo” were tempeh and mushrooms. This […]
