Edamame Tofu Rice Bowl

I’ve been having fun making different types of tofu lately. I have made this and this  in the past. This time I decided to make Edamame version. This delicate tofu turned out to be absolutely delicious!! It’s almost like mousse. I enjoyed my first Edamame tofu on rice. Isn’t this beautiful? Well, it was beautiful […]

Tofu Katsu Sandwich
豆腐カツサンド

Tofu Katsu Sandwich. Anything tastes better when deep-fried. But it tastes even better when it’s cooked in the “Katsu” style, covered with the crispy Panko bread crumbs. I used my turmeric bread for this sandwich. The vibrant yellow color is so lovely. What you find inside the sandwich along with the Tofu Katsu are spinach […]

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, […]

Buffalo Tofu Wrap
バッファロー豆腐ラップ

When my sister came from Japan to visit us in the U.S. a few months ago, she told me she wanted to try a wrap. That’s when I realized that I don’t make wraps! Her stay was short, and I didn’t have a chance to make a homemade wrap. But she was able to try […]

Spicy Summer Soba

What’s your go-to meal on a hot and humid summer day? Mine is cold noodles. Soba noodles were served with homemade almond tofu, Wakame seaweed, and summer veggies. So refreshing and tasty!!

Tofu Stuffed Bitter Melon Tempura

  My bitter melon adventure continues. My first bitter melon dish, namul, did not fly. I could not eat more than a few bites, because it was too bitter. My next bitter melon dish was my previous post, smoothie. It was still a bit bitter, but the bitterness was surprisingly pleasant. Many people recommended tempura. […]

Almond Tofu
アーモンド豆腐

Remember my first homemade tofu, Sunflower Tofu? Well, I liked it so much that I decided to make tofu again. This time, an almond version. It’s so easy to make, and it turns out great this time too. Very creamy and smooth.

Spicy Mango Pad Thai Spaghetti
スパイシーマンゴーパッタイスパゲッティ

Happy Wednesday! I started doing meal-prep a few weekends ago, and I’m loving it. It makes it so much easier to prepare weekday meals. Healthier. And less stress. However, it usually becomes challenging to create dinner that doesn’t make you feel like you are eating the same things over and over. I got to come […]

Sunflower Tofu
ひまわり豆腐

The tofu we typically think of is made of soy beans. But in Japan many other types of tofu exist. Some popular ones are sesame tofu and peanut tofu. I was going to make one of them, but I just didn’t have the ingredients for either one of them. But I did have sunflower seed […]

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 […]
