Dango Jiru (Dumpling Miso Soup) Vegan Recipe | Japanese Cooking Video

Dango Jiru or Dago Jiru is a Traditional dumpling soup from many prefectures in Japan. Depending on prefecture, it is called differently. For instance in Ōita it is called Dango Jiru and in Kumamoto it is called Dago Jiru, etc... The shape of dumplings differs from house to house. Some people take time to stretch out the dumplings into long Udon-like noodle shape. Some people make it into flat round shape. Some people just tear it into the soup. Moreover, some people put chicken and vegetables. Most people use Taro potato, Daikon radish, and Gobo (burdock root) but they are not a must. Please take it easy and try it out in the way you like! Fun to make with kids as well 😉




FYI: You can use any Dashi product. I used this one. RIKEN Kombu Dashi Powder (リケン 素材力だし こんぶだし)

Basic Stuffed Cabbage Rolls | Japanese Home Cooking Video Recipe

Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls (we call Roll Kyabetsu) is typical Japanese home cooked main dish that everyone wants to remember. It goes perfect with white rice 😋




I will share with you the very basic simple recipe. Try this first. Then arrange it in the way you like by adding or changing the ingredients 😉

TIPS: Use a pot that fits the cabbage rolls tightly (put the cabbage scraps to fill the openings), then you don't have to worry about the rolling technique. They won't move and open while cooking 💡

---------------------------------

Basic Cabbage Rolls (One of the BEST Japanese Home Cooking Recipes)


Difficulty: Medium
Time: 1hr
Number of servings: 8 pieces

Ingredients
340g (12oz) ground beef and pork mixture *any kind of ground meat is ok
1 (200g/7oz) minced onion
1 cabbage (8 nice leaves or more)
1 consommé cube *any bouillon cube is ok
1 tbsp. cooking oil
salt and pepper
nutmeg *if you have
parsley flakes
ketchup *if you like

Directions:
1. Carefully peel up to 16 nice cabbage leaves. Place them on a microwavable dish, cover lightly with plastic wrap, then microwave on medium (600W) for 5 minutes. You can boil in a large pot until soft and drain as well. Shave the core to make it flat if it is too thick.
2. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan, cook minced onion until tender. Add half the amount of ground meat and cook until no longer pink, season with salt and pepper, then transfer it into a large bowl to cool.
3. When the meat is cold enough to handle, add the rest of the ground meat, 1/2 tsp. salt, pepper, and nutmeg and knead well with your hands. Divide it into 8 portions.
4. Place the meat mixture on a cabbage leaf, then roll up securely. If leaves are small overlap small cabbage leaves (2 or 3 leaves) together then wrap.
5. Use a pot that fits the cabbage rolls tightly. Place the cabbage rolls and put the cabbage scraps to fill the openings. Make sure they don't move while cooking.
6. Break the consommé cube in quarters and put them on top, place bay leaves, pour 1 cup (240ml) of water, cover, and cook on medium low for 30 minutes.
7. Place the cabbage rolls on serving dishes. Season the broth with salt and pepper then pour over the cabbage rolls. You can thicken the broth with slurry (1 tbsp. starch diluted with 2 tbsp. water) to make a thick sauce if you like. You can serve with ketchup if you like (many kids like to eat in this way). Sprinkle with parsley flakes to finish.

Separate shungiku leaves and stalks, cut leaves into bite-sized pieces and cut stalks diagonally.
2. Heat cooking oil in the pot and cook the long onions and skin-side of chicken until crisp golden (long onion gives nice flavor). Chicken doesn’t have to be cooked thoroughly because it is going to be simmered later. Slice the chicken into bite-size pieces.

You can add udon if desired. It goes great with Sukiyaki!
The next day, you can simmer the leftover broth with beaten eggs and make rice bowls. yummy!!!

How to Make Healthy Homemade Clam Chowder (Perfect Family Recipe) - Video Recipe

Healthy well balanced Clam Chowder using lots of vegetables, rich in vitamins, iron, and calcium.

I learned this recipe at the Maternity cooking class held by the city I live in. Since I don't like milk, I used soy milk instead.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4ZY9BVvakE

Recipes for moms are always good for whole family ;)



FYI: Nov. 8th 2014 Maternity Cooking マタニティ クッキング
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1iXfIkp5G8

---------------------------------
Healthy Homemade Clam Chowder

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 4
Calories per serving: 135Kcal

Ingredients:
130g (4.6oz.) canned shelled Asari clams in water
100g (3.5oz.) chopped onion
80g (2.8oz.) Komatsuna (Japanese spinach)
40g (1.4oz.) chopped bacon slices
100g (3.5oz.) potato
2 tbsp. flour
150ml soy milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. Sake *water is okay
300ml = water + the liquid from the canned Asari
1 tsp. butter
cracked black pepper

*You don't have to parboil Komatsuna (Japanese spinach) because it doesn't contain that much oxalic acid content compared to the regular spinach. If you are using the regular spinach, please parboil it!

Directions:
1. Chop Komatsuna and separate stalks and leaves. Dice potato and soak in water (to prevent from changing color & remove starch).
2. Heat butter in a pot and cook the chopped onion until tender. Add the chopped bacon and cook until done. Then add the Komatsuna stalks and chopped potatoes, and cook until coated with oil.
3. Add Sake, cover, and steam until the potatoes are cooked.
4. Add flour and mix until blended.

How to Make Very Basic Dashi Broth (Perfect Soup Stock for Japanese Food) - Video Recipe

This video will show you how to make the very basic Dashi broth, the base of many Japanese dishes, as well as Japanese baby food ;)

This is one of a few ways to make Dashi!
You can make vegetarian Dashi by using only Kombu (kelp).
Dashi does not mean fish btw... it means "Soup Stock".

Kombu (kelp), Hana-katsuo (large bonito flakes), and/or Niboshi (small dried sardines) can be used to make the broth. The combination is up to you.



---------------------------------
Very Basic Dashi Broth (Perfect Soup Stock for Japanese Food)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min + soaking time
Number of servings: 4 cups

Ingredients:
800ml water
20cm/8inch-long Kombu (kelp)
handful of Hana-katsuo (large bonito flakes)

Directions:
1. Cut Kombu in half, then clean it with moistened towel. Soak in 800ml water for 30 minutes.
2. Heat the pot on medium, before it starts to boil, remove the Kombu, add Hana-katsuo, mix, stop the heat and wait until they soak completely.
3. Strain the Dashi soup with a strainer (with a clean cloth or a paper towel if you have). *Do not squeeze the bonito flakes too much since they can add bad smell.

For baby food, you can store it in the freezer for a week!

You can make homemade Furikake (rice seasoning) with leftover Dashi ingredients!

How to Make Hamaguri no Osuimono (Common Orient Clam Clear Soup) - Video Recipe

Very simple yet tasty soup!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HncvEIWHD8

---------------------------------
Hamaguri no Osuimono (Common Orient Clam Clear Soup)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10min
Number of servings: 3

Ingredients:
3 Hamaguri (common orient clam)
diced Kinugoshi-dofu (silken tofu)
Umefu (or Kamaboko fish cake)
Mitsuba (Japanese wild parsley)
60ml Yamaki Kappo Shiro Dashi (White Dashi)
540ml water
*Umefu is made from wheat gluten, very sticky like mochi

Directions:
1. If your clams have some sand in them, place the clams in a dark container and fill it with salted water (as salty as sea water). And let sit for several hours. The clams push salt water and sand out of their shells. Then drain well.
2. Put water and Yamaki Kappo Shiro Dashi (White Dashi) in a pot, then bring to a boil. Place Hamaguri, when they are open, add Umefu and Tofu, then simmer for a few seconds.
3. Serve in a dish and garnish with Mitsuba.

How to Make Matsutake Clear Soup (Pine Mushroom Osuimono) - Video Recipe

Matsutake Clear Soup is very simple and aromatic. You can even enjoy a small piece of Matsutake :)

Matsutake is also called pine mushroom. It is usually found at the foot of pine tree, very expensive mushroom because of its rarity. Price varies depending on the area of production.

Recently, my mom said worm-eaten ones sold at discounted prices are really good and affordable, so I tried them out. Yes! They are truly great. They are worth to try!!!

BTW, I usually get Matsutake at Takashimaya (高島屋) department store in Futakotamagawa (二子玉川) ;)
