Apple Chili
りんごチリスープ

Yes, you read it right. Apples in chili! Since I still had beautiful apples we got from the local orchard, I wanted to enjoy them in a unique way. Besides apples in this chili you’ll find onions, red peppers, tempeh, and black beans. The sweet and tart flavors from the apples were surprisingly good in […]

Breakfast Wrap
朝食ラップ

I don’t know why I don’t make wraps more often. They are easy to make and easy to eat! Probably one of the best hand-held food you can have while driving. Well, I didn’t need to go anywhere, but these were still so good. I wrapped all my breakfast favorites, like scrambled tofu, roasted potatoes, […]

Tempeh Grilled Nectarine Ginger Teriyaki Sandwich
テンペグリルネクタリンサンドイッチ

This was probably one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever made!! And my husband agrees. Beautiful nectarines with grill marks. A Ciabatta roll from Trader Joe’s, fresh arugula, homemade vegan mayo, marinated thick tempeh steak, and the grilled nectarine. Ginger teriyaki glaze was drizzled on top. Fresh onion slices, more arugula, mayo and then crispy […]

Onigirazu Rice Sandwich
テンペターメリック豆腐おにぎらず

This style of rice sandwich became extremely popular in Japan about five years ago. It’s called “Onigirazu.” At that time it seemed that everyone in Japan was making this. I’m always a bit behind of trends, and now five years later I made my first Onigirazu. You can basically use anything you like once you […]

BF Egg Tempeh Sandwich
朝食玉子テンペサンドイッチ

Another favorite breakfast sandwich of mine. I recently discovered this salt, which gives unique egg-like flavor. Interesting, right? Fried tempeh. Doesn’t it look good? Fresh watercress. Mise en place. I always tend to pile up too much stuff and get afraid that they might fall! Have a great weekend everyone!

Deconstructed Bahn Mi Rice Bowl
解体バインミー丼

You have all the ingredients for your banh mi sandwich, but you are missing the right bread for it. What would you do? Make deconstructed bahn mi rice bowl! I talked about this Trader Joe’s super firm tofu before. This is REALLY firm and dense, and when cooked, the texture resembles that of chicken. That’s […]

Moroccan Eggplant & Cucumber Salad Pitas: MAGAZINE vs. I Vol.1
モロッコ風茄子ときゅうりサラダでピタパン:雑誌-対-あたし

This is an ultimate one plate dinner, if you ask me. Warm homemade rosemary pita bread just out of the oven, served with Moroccan spiced eggplant and tempeh ragu and cool cucumber-mint salad. The idea came from a magazine. My mother-in-law always has a stack of magazines for me to take home whenever I visit […]
