Rainbow Somen Noodles (Seven Plant Based Summer Somen Noodles "Miwa no Niji") Recipe


Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
((Toppings))
grape tomato wedges
cucumber strips
Shiso leaf strips
Naganegi (long onion slices)
Aonegi (chopped green onions)
ginger strips
Arare (rice crackers)
Yukari (red Shiso leaves rice seasoning)
((Somen Dipping Sauce))
* 300ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 4 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 4 tbsp. soy sauce
((Somen Noodles))
Miwa no Niji (rainbow Somen noodles)

Directions:
((Somen Dipping Sauce))
In a pot, bring Dashi broth, Mirin, and soy sauce to a boil. You can also microwave until it comes to a boil. Cool in the fridge until ready to serve.
((Somen Noodles))
Boil water in a large pot. Add dried Somen noodles in boiling water and gently stir noodles with chopsticks. Cook Somen noodles according to your package (mine was 2 min). Drain the noodles in a strainer and rinse the noodles with hands under running water. Take bite-size portion of the noodles and roll them on your fingers (like you roll pasta on a fork), and place them on a dish. Decorate the noodles with toppings of your choice and keep in the fridge until you serve.

I love using Kayanoya Dashi. Vegan/Vegetarian people can use Kombu or Vegetable Dashi broth for the dipping sauce 👍


You can also dilute Mentsuyu to make Somen dipping sauce but make sure you dilute as instructed because the level of concentration vary from product to product.

Light, fluffy, and juicy Aburaage (salty sweet tasty deep-fried Tofu pouch) makes Kitsuneudon absolutely delicious 😉 You don't need to simmer it down. This is the BEST recipe you may want to follow 👍




Kitsune Udon literary means "fox Udon" in Japanese. Because Aburaage is fox's favorite food in the folktale.


Simple yet delicious, typical kids' meal as well 😋

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

How to Make Kitsune Udon (juicy and tasty deep-fried Tofu) Recipe


Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 2

Ingredients
2 frozen Udon noodles *I used TableMark (Katokichi), any brand is OK
2 Aburaage (deep-fried Tofu pouch)
A
* 100ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 1 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 1 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tbsp. soy sauce
Kaketsuyu (Udon soup)
* 500ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 2 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 1 tsp. soy sauce
* 1/2 tsp. salt
chopped green onions
Shichimi-togarashi (seven flavor chili pepper) if you like

Directions:
1. In a pot, make 600ml Dashi broth: 100ml for Aburaage, 500ml for Kaketsuyu. I used Kayanoya Dashi
2. Cut Aburaage into half. Put Aburaage in boiling water for 3 minutes to remove the excess oil. Drain in a strainer, when it becomes cool enough to handle, press with your hands to drain well. By removing excess oil, Aburaage becomes very light and soaks the seasonings very well.
3. In a small pot, put A and Aburaage, then cover with Otoshibuta (wooden drop-lid or you can substitute it with a small plate). Simmer for 7~8 minutes then stop the heat. Do not simmer it down to make it juicy and fluffy.
4. Put Kaketsuyu (Udon soup) in a pot then bring to a boil.
5. Bring water to a boil in a large pot, if your pot is small cook Udon 1 serving at a time, cook Udon on medium high heat as directed on its package. (Cooking time was 1 minute for TableMark frozen Udon) You shake the noodles in boiling water then stop the heat when they are separated.
6. Wash with cold water to remove the slimy texture. Put Udon again in boiling water to make it warm. Using the edge of a serving bowl, slide in the noodles.
7. Pour in some Kaketsuyu (Udon soup), place Aburaage, and garnish with chopped green onions. Put some Shichimi-togarashi (seven flavor chili pepper) if you like.

I love using Kayanoya Dashi. Vegan/Vegetarian people can use Kombu or Vegetable Dashi broth for the dipping sauce 👍

Nagashi Somen (At-Home Fun Flowing Noodles Party Rainbow LED Machine) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Somen is perfect refreshing food for hot and humid summer season 🎐




Sōmen (素麺) is very thin Japanese noodles made of wheat flour. The noodles are usually served cold in summer with a dashi flavored tasty dipping sauce called Mentsuyu (めんつゆ).

My daughter requested me to make Nagashi Somen (Flowing Somen). Two years ago (when she was 3) she had a chance to do it at Kindergarten. Noodles flowing in a bamboo pipe, you need to catch the noodles with chopsticks then dip in a cup of noodle sauce to eat. Sadly not because of COVID-19, this event is gradually removed from schools. Anyway, we can still enjoy it at home 😋 Kids enjoyed it and ate well 👍💕 BTW, I asked my daughter if she needs a machine like a long water slide, then my daughter chose this one and it was pretty fun!!! Good choice 💡

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 💡


Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

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

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.

How to Make Kamaage Udon (Marugame Inspired Recipe) | Japanese Cooking Video

Kamaage Udon is Udon served in a wooden bowl with some hot cooking water. You dip Udon into dipping sauce and eat with some toppings if you like. Tempura sides are perfect. If you have ever tried it at a restaurant (such as Marugame Udon Restaurant), you know it is pretty simple yet delicious.




I was not sure if I should get the wooden bowl to recreate it at home while plastic one is available. However, by serving it in a wooden bowl, I noticed it keeps Udon hot for a long while, looking good with a nice steam rising from it. It was fantastic and everyone liked it 😉 If you get a chance to get a wooden bowl, please try it out 💖

Light and Crispy Kakiage Tempura (Japanese Vegetable Fritters) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Kakiage is Japanese vegetable fritters, sometimes with seafood. Vegetable strips are the main ingredients. Leftover vegetables are okay! Vegan/Vegetarian people can use Kombu Dashi broth for the dipping sauce 👍




Using round aluminum foil molds, you can deep fry the vegetable strips with less batter coated. In this way Kakiage becomes very light and crispy 😋


You can serve it with rice or Udon noodles for example, as a side dish. Or, you can put on top of rice or Udon noodles to make a bowl dish. It is up to you 😉

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

Light and Crispy Kakiage Tempura (Japanese Vegetable Fritters Recipe)


Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 4 pieces of 8cm (3inch) Kakiage

Ingredients
100g (3.5oz) onion slices
30g (1oz) carrot strips
30g (1oz) whole kernel corn
--Tempura Batter
* 1/2 cup ice-cold water
* 1/2 cup all purpose flour
--Tentsuyu (Tempura dipping sauce)
* 100ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 2 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 2 tbsp. soy sauce
vegetable oil for deep frying

Directions:
1. Cut aluminum foil about 30cm (12inch) long, fold it into quarters lengthwise. Make a ring then fold the ends together to make 8cm (3inch) circle. (please see the video)
2. Place the cut vegetables in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp. of all purpose flour from Tempura Batter, then coat evenly with your hands.
3. Tempura Batter: Mix ice-cold water and all purpose flour. Make sure to use ice-cold water not to activate the gluten. The batter should be lumpy, do not over-mix.
4. Add the vegetables then toss lightly.
5. Heat 5cm (2inches) of oil in a pan to 170C (340F). Place one or two aluminum foil rings (depending on the size of the pan), then put 1/4 of the vegetables in each ring little by little to form into circles. When the bottoms are cooked, remove the rings, flip them over and cook thoroughly until crisp golden. Then drain well. (Do not deep fry too many at once.)
6. Tentsuyu: In a pan, bring Dashi broth, Mirin, and soy sauce to a boil. You can also microwave until it comes to a boil. **
7. You can eat with salt, with Tentsuyu, or serve on top of rice with Tentsuyu to make Tendon (Tempura rice bowl), etc... it is up to you.

**For tentsuyu, you can use Yamasa's Konbu Tsuyu (3 times concentrated Konbu kelp seaweed soup stock). You just need to dilute it with hot water as directed on the package. This product is very convenient and it is available overseas!
