Tamagoyaki (Japanese Omelette/Egg Roll) is one of Japan’s unique egg dishes. Usually, tamagoyaki is a little sweet with sugar. In this recipe, however, the sweetness is reduced by adding homemade mayonnaise.
Japanese mayonnaise gives the impression of having a slightly sweet taste and a light, smooth texture on the tongue. The key to the flavor of Japanese mayonnaise is the use of rice vinegar, Japanese mustard and sugar. For the oil, I use rice oil, which we chose as a health-conscious choice.
The 3rd of March is the traditional and representative spring event day called “Hinamatsuri” in Japan. In this video, I introduce how to make 2 kinds Chirashizushi (Scattered sushi). One for adults with using fresh seafoods and the other for kids with using cooked ingredients.
An important spring event is the Dolls’ Festival called “Hinamatsuri”. For the Dolls’ Festival, people usually eat Chirashi-zushi, a sushi dish made with fresh seafood and other ingredients. However, it is a little difficult for children to eat, so I made cup sushi using ingredients that are fun to look at and easy for children to eat.
In this recipe video, I will show you how to make 3 “No Egg” Japanese sweets; Soy Milk Pudding, Wheat Gluten (Fu) Rusk and Tofu & Kinako Cookies. Those sweets are also “No Milk” and “No Gelatin”, so I think those are great snacks for kids as well!
When you want a quick, tasty, and hearty meat dish, I recommend this Miso Mayo Chicken. It’s time to let the miso that’s been sitting in the fridge come to life. It is really easy to make! All you have to do is mix miso with mayonnaise, let the chicken soak up the flavor, and cook it in a frying pan.
Miso (味噌) is one of the key ingredients in Japanese cuisine and is a fermented paste, which is made from soybeans and sea salt combined with koji (麹, a type of mold starter). This recipe makes a basic miso using only soybeans, Koji and Salt. But it is also fun to think about the daily fermentation process.
In this recipe video, I will show you how to make a Japanese set meal. What makes this video unique is that with just a few additions of seasonings, the whole family (babies around 1 year old and up) can eat together. Specifically, we make an Natto Oyaki (Rice chips with fermented soybeans) and Grilled Salmon. And finally, I made a set meal with Miso soup and Japanese sweets Anmitsu.
