PB Ink Pasta with V-“Scallops”
Vホタテ入りV墨パスタ

Before I switched to the 100% plant-based diet, seafood was one of my favorite things to eat. But now I don’t eat seafood, but I can create dishes that bring “ocean” flavors, which I enjoy doing very much. Plant-based “squid” ink pasta was one of the dishes I’ve wanted to try for a long time. […]

Homemade Strawberry Pasta
ホームメード苺パスタ

I like fruit, and I mostly eat them fresh. But since we are a small household (of two), the smallest sized package is often still too big for us to finish quickly. So I’m always trying to find a way to use them. I know it’s easier to use it for sweets, but we can’t […]

Curried Yaki-Udon
カレー焼きうどん

Yaki-soba has become more widely known outside Japan lately, but Yaki-Udon is another Japanese favorite noodle dish. Yaki means “fried”, so this is a fried noodle dish; you just use Udon noodles. The thick chewy Udon provides a totally different culinary experience from Yaki-soba. Yaki-Soba is typically cooked with Japanese Worcestershire sauce, but Yaki-Udon is […]

Homemade Pasta
ホームメードパスタ

This was something I had wanted to try for a while, and I thought this long weekend would be perfect to do so. Homemade pasta! I have made homemade pasta using eggs in the past, but this time my goal was to make tasty pasta without using eggs. I did some research and studied several […]

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
ベジたっぷりココナッツカレーヌードルスープ

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!
