Birthday Party with Tacos!
タコスでバースデーパーティー

Today we had an official birthday party for my husband. Celebrated it with the family, and it was great to see everyone. It was originally my mother-in-law’s idea, and she even offered her place for the party. Since my husband always tells me not to throw a surprise party, so I didn’t hide the plan […]

Go Local! V-Egg Salad Sandwich
ローカルがいいね、Vエッグサラダサンド

I got beautiful whole grain English muffins from a co-op store. While I was at the store, something caught my eye. “Minnesota Local”. Since we changed our diet and now pay so much more attention to what food we buy, certain key words get my attention, like vegan, plant-based, no preservatives, no artificial colors, no […]

Truly Awesome Blue Cheese Burger
凄いヨ!ブルーチーズバーガー

Blue cheese burger has always been one of my husband’s favorite burgers. Remember? I just made plant-based blue cheese using the recipe from this book. Well, there was a reason my husband asked me to make the blue cheese first.   Since I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use tofu or portabella mushrooms for […]

Fresh Exotic Larb Salad
エキゾチック・ラーブサラダ

Hawaiian Miso BBQ Tacos
ハワイ風味噌BBQタコス

Sometimes I come up with a food idea because I want to use a certain ingredient. I found a beautiful pineapple at a local grocery store, and it was so fresh and sweet. This is how I eat. I just peel the skin, and cut it up into big chunks. Of course, I wanted to […]

Yakko Rice Bowl
冷奴どんぶり

You may ask what is “Yakko”? Well, you probably already know what it is. It’s another name for “tofu”. I don’t know why but we often use the term “yakko” to describe tofu dishes. Napa cabbage. One of my favorite leaf vegetables. It’s crunchy, juicy, and I love the crunchy texture and the slight sweetness. […]

Anything Goes Shakshuka
こんなのもいいシャクシュカ

Shakshuka was one of my favorite weekend breakfast dishes. So when I switched to the 100% plant-based diet, I thought I would have to say good-bye to it forever. But once I became more confident in plant-cooking, I thought maybe I could still enjoy the dish with a little twist. So this shakshuka was made […]
