I've been having so much fun with a Japanese cookbook I found at my library. It's called The Japanese Kitchen and it's written by Kimiko Barber. We love Japanese food because it's not only tasty, but very healthy too, with its emphasis on seasonal fruits and vegetables, soy, rice, seafood, green tea, etc. My local grocery store has some of the ingredients we need, but I found a Japanese grocery store in BC that will ship anywhere in Canada. Ever since the box arrived filled with such interesting ingredients as wasabi, mirin, miso paste, soba noodles, etc., we've been trying to transform our kitchen into a Japanese kitchen on a regular basis! Here are some of the dishes we've tried, with most of the recipes coming from the book.
Crabmeat, chile, and lime sushi
Inari zushi (Stuffed tofu sushi)
Gyoza dumplings with cabbage, shiitake mushrooms, scallions, and ground beef
Hirama no tsutusmi-yakii (Parcels of sole)
Spinach with bonito flakes
Maccha (green tea) ice cream with adzuki bean paste
Shiratama manju (Sweet dumplings with adzuki bean paste)
What about you? What are your favorite Japanese foods?
