I went hiking with Obento I made in the morning!!
Obento is a carried lunch.
Usually when we go picnic or hiking we bring them.
And the menu is like these
-Onigiri (Baked salmon, soboro which is simmered minced-pork inside)
-Tamago yaki ( not in this picture)
I like Obento when I go hiking!!
I wrote about hiking this week here
This dish is very good with rice!
My husband likes it a lot.
Now taro, sato-imo, is popular in Japanese super markets.
They are brown but inside is white.
I usually used them in a Ozouni which we have in Jan. 1-3rd. It’s a soup. And also I use it like this dish.
-150g Minced chicken meat
-1/4 cup water
-1 Tsp Hon-dashi
-2 Tbsp Soy sauce
-2 Tbsp Mirin
-2 Tbsp Sake
-1 Tbsp Sugar
-Peal taros and cut in half.
-Boil them in a pod until the taros become soft.
-Waste the boiled water and leave the taro in the pot and put A in it.
-When it boils, you can put minced meat in the pot and simmers until the liquid is almost gone.
-Cut green onion and put then on it.
I went to a Ramen shop, Halu along the Saratoga St.
I ordered Tsukemen which is about that I dip noodle in the soup.
And also I ordered small toppings place and share it with my friend.
I like it!
I heard here doesn’t put MSG so it’s good!
This is healthier and yummy!
I like this long konnyalu, shirataki or itokonnyaku, we say, like a noodle.
This is good with rice or Japanese sake as a appetizer!
-1 package Shirataki
-mushroom as much as you like
-enoki as much as you like
-50 ml Mentsuyu
-1 Tbsp sesame oil
Cut Sirataki in three and mushrooms.
Put Sesami oil in a pan.
Put Sirataki first and stir until it’s dry.
Put mushroom and enoki in the pan and stir.
Put mentsuyu in the pan.
Put chili pepper in the pan.
Recently I put just Sesami oil and salt for salads!
This is Octopus salad.
That’s it!! So delicious!
We like Saba no misoni a lot!
It’s good with rice and easy to make it.
You can buy cut Mackerel in a Japanese super market.
Direction: for two
1 Put these in a pan and boil it
-cooking sake Tbsp1.5
-soy sauce Tbsp1
2 Put mackerel and chopped ginger in the pan until it boils it, putting the liquid on the Mackerel.
3 put a lid made by foil on the Mackerel and boil it for 10 mints
4 put Miso Tbsp1.5 in the pan and melt it using the liquid in the pan until the liquid becomes sticky.
Usually when I have natto it’s difficult not to stick the beans on the sheet inside of the package.
But I made it!
Slide the sheet slowly like this.
Let’s try this
