Ohitashi is traditionally made with spinach but other green leafy vegetables can be used. There's nothing fancy about this dish but over the years I've become more fond of it. There are no special cooking techniques involved here, although you will want to make sure you don't over cook the spinac...

Tamago Osuimono
Matsutake gohan should only be paired with an osuimono for two reasons: 1) They are both fancy foods and 2) you don't want a strong miso soup flavor to over power the matsutake. I was inspired by a recipe I found on Cookpad (Mammaru Tamagodofu no osuimono ), although I found it to be too salty so...

Matsutake Gohan
Celebrate fall with matsutake. The most frugal way to enjoy your not so frugal mushrooms is matsutake gohan. This build-a-meal is a little bit gouka (fancy) because of the matsutake but is also very simple being comprised of mostly vegetables. I would recommend making the kyuri and ume kounomono ...

BAM 32: Wafū Pasta 3: Sansai (Mountain Vegetable) Pasta
This pasta recipe is for a friend who told me that sansai pasta is her favorite wafū pasta. She said she had it at a Japanese restaurant, and although I have never been to that restaurant, I imagined that it would taste something like this. I thought about putting age (fried tofu) in it and also ...

BAM 27: Hiyashi Chuka
Hiyashi Chuka is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. I will never forget the first time I had it. My grandmother and grandfather had just arrived from Japan and were unpacking their large bulky suit cases in the kitchen because of course 1/3 of their luggage was food from Japan. Back then,...

BAM 25: Vegan Build-a-Meal Nagaimo Pancake, Lemon Daikon, Myoga and Red Potato Miso Soup and Rice.
BAM 25: Vegan Build-a-meal Nagaimo Pancake,Lemon Daikon ,Myoga and Red Potato Miso Soup andRice. I often hear people tell me that Japanese food isn't very vegetarian or vegan friendly and I would agree only because dashi (fish and kelp stock) is hidden in almost everything. I would however arg...

BAM 24: Yakionigiri Ochazuke
This meal was inspired by Seiroku Honda who was a famous author, botanist and landscape designer who designed many national parks in Japan during the Meiji Era (1868-1912). His story begins when he goes to Germany to study abroad and returns to Japan to become an assistant professor at Tokyo Univ...

Chicken Karaage
Who doesn't like fried chicken? Japanese fried chicken or Chicken Karaage differs somewhat from the Colonel's recipe. Japanese fried chicken is cut up into bite size pieces, well more like 2-3 bites per piece. It's also flavored with soy sauce, sugar, sake and/or mirin. The main difference is in ...

BAM 18: Sansai Gohan (Mountain Vegetable Rice) and Tonjiru
BAM 18:Sansai Gohan and Tonjiru (Pork andGobo ) miso soup. When I think of this rice, I think of fighting with my brother on who got to do the dishes that night. My brother and I took turns washing dishes every other night and since Japanese food usually has many small dishes, both of us always...

Ingredient in the Spotlight: Sanbaizu
三杯酢:三(3) 杯(counter for cupfuls) 酢(Vinegar) The definition of sanbaizu is equal parts, vinegar, soy sauce and mirin, however in actuality, it is typically made with a 3:1:2 ratio of rice vinegar, soy sauce and sugar. There are many recipes that call for different combinations. I prefer a 5:1:2 rat...
