This video will show you how to make Vegetable Yaki Gyoza (fried dumplings)!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeUzBV6K8II

Very healthy idea, perfect for vegetarians and those who are on diet ;)



---------------------------------
Vegetable Gyoza

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 24 pieces

Ingredients:
200g (7oz.) cabbage
100g (3.5oz.) onion
80g (2.8oz.) carrot
1/2 long onion
salt
1 tbsp. potato or corn starch
A
* 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
* 1 tbsp. sake
* 1/2 tbsp. oyster sauce (or vegetarian stir-fry sauce)
* 1/4 tsp. salt
* 1 tbsp. grated ginger
* cracked black pepper
24 gyoza wrappers
1 tbsp. sesame oil

Directions:
1. Wrap the cabbage with plastic wrap and microwave at 500W for 3 minutes until tender. Finely chop the cabbage then squeeze in paper towels to remove excess water.
2. Finely chop the onion, sprinkle with a bit of salt, then wash and drain well with paper towels. *in this way you can remove the bitter taste and bring up the sweetness of the onion.
3. Finely chop the carrot and the long onion.
4. Mix 1-3 in a bowl, then mix in starch to let it absorb the water.
5. Add A and mix well.
6. Place the gyoza wrapper in your palm and place a spoonful of filling in the center. Put water along the edge of the wrapper by fingers, fold into semi circle, gather the front side of the wrapper and seal.
7. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan, place gyoza, cook on high heat until the bottoms become brown.
8. Turn the heat down to medium, add 50ml water (or about 1/3 of their hight), cover and steam the gyoza on med-high heat until cooked. Uncover and cook on high heat until the water is gone and crisp.

This Gyoza is already seasoned but you can serve them with a mixture of vinegar, a little soy sauce, and a few drops of la-yu if you like.

How to Make Fresh Wakame Seaweed Soup (미역국) - Video Recipe

Fresh Wakame seaweed is in season in spring in Japan!
My mom bought it as a souvenir.

Wakame soup is highly nutritious soup that contains a high content of calcium and iodine.

Most of the time, it is served with Yakiniku (Japanese Grilled Meat / BBQ). Of course it goes great with any kind of dish, especially the rice dish :)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0wDMY8UoSo

You can blanch the fresh Wakame in boiling water (which will turn the natural brown color to the green we are familiar with) and freeze up to a year. When you use, you can just defrost at room temperature or soak in water.

There are many ways to enjoy fresh Wakame seaweed. Leaves can be used for Shabu Shabu (enjoy leaves changing color in hot water and eat with Ponzu sauce), Miso soup, salad, etc… Stems can be used for Tsukudani (simmered dish), Kinpira (stir-fried dish), etc…



---------------------------------
Fresh Wakame Seaweed Soup

Time: 10min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
100g (3.5oz.) fresh Wakame leaves *or rehydrate 4 pinches of dried Wakame in water and drain
A
* 800ml water
* 4 tsp. chicken stock powder *or 2&2/3 tsp. Ajinomoto Hondashi Kombu Dashi stock powder (Vegetarian stock)
B
* chopped long onion
* toasted white sesame seeds
* a dash of sesame oil *or Ra-Yu (hot chili oil)

Directions:
1. Blanch the fresh Wakame leaves in boiling water (which will turn the natural brown color to the green).
2. Put A in a pot and bring to a boil.
3. Add Wakame and cook until hot.

How to Make Kobumaki (Salmon and Pork Kelp Roll) - Video Recipe

Kobumaki is kelp roll, one of the Japanese new year's dishes.

It makes a play on words with "喜ぶ (Yorokobu)" which symbolizes pleasure or delight.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBizGfALnEU

Perfect dish that you want to add in your new year's menu.
Of course, it can be a regular bento side dish :)
It goes great with white rice!!!



For vegetarian people, you can substitute the filling with Gobo (burdock root), carrot, or/and other vegetables of your choice.

---------------------------------
Kobumaki (Salmon and Pork Kelp Roll)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 2hrs
Number of servings: 25-30 pieces

Ingredients:
10 ten-inch-long (25cm) Hidaka Kombu (this type cooks quick and tender)
800ml water
150g (5.3oz.) salmon fillet
6 thinly sliced pork (I used thigh but any part is okay)
30g (1.0oz.) Kanpyō (dried gourd strips)
A
* 1 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 2 tbsp. Sake
* 3 tbsp. sugar
4 tbsp. soy sauce

Directions:
1. Clean each Kombu with moistened towel. Soak in 800ml water for 5 minutes. Save the water.
2. Wash Kanpyō, rub 1/2 tbsp. of salt on Kanpyō (to remove bad smell and cook tender), then wash and drain well.
3. Cut salmon into about 0.7-inch-wide strips.
4. Place a salmon strip on the end of the Kombu close to you and roll securely. Wrap a strip of Kanpyō round the Kombu roll for 2 times (not too tight but not too loose), make double knot, then trim off the uneven ends. You may want to tie up 2 or 3 places.
5. In a large pot, place the rolls without overlapping each other. Pour the reserved soaking water just until it barely covers the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then remove the foam if necessary.
6. Add A, turn the heat down to low, cover with Otoshibuta (drop lid), and cook for 30 minutes.
7. Add soy sauce, cook on low for another 30 minutes until the cooking liquid is almost absorbed.
8. Turn off the heat. Leave to cool in the pot. Cut into 2 or 3 pieces.

You can store in the fridge for a week :)

Check out online or local Sanrio stores!!!

((Kamaboko Fish Cake House))
white Kamaboko fish cake
Kanikama (imitation crab meat/crab sticks)
sliced American cheese
spaghetti pasta
((Hello Kitty Onigiri Rice Ball))
cooked white Japanese rice
salt
Nori sheet
red pepper bottom
drained canned whole corn kernels

Directions:
((Stuffed Red Peppers))
1. Put A in a bowl and mix well by hand until all ingredients are combined and smooth.
2. Cut the bottoms off the red peppers to make a ribbon (ribbons) for the Hello Kitty Onigiri Rice Ball.
3. Cut each pepper into 3 rings, remove the seeds, and dust inside of peppers with flour.
4. Stuff the mixture into the peppers.
5. Heat cooking oil in a pan and place the stuffed peppers. When one side is golden brown, flip them over. Cover and steam for about 5 minutes until cooked through. In the same pan, lightly saute the Hello Kitty ribbons, and set aside.
6. Cut the sliced cheese with a toothpick to make apple cores. Cut Nori sheet with eyebrow scissors to make apple seeds.
*I bought leaf-shaped bento toothpicks at "CANDO" 100yen shop.

((Kamaboko Fish Cake House))
1. Slice Kamaboko fish cake and cut into a house shape.
2. Peel off the red part of Kanikama to make the roof, and attach it with bits of spaghetti pasta. (pasta will absorb moisture from Kamaboko and gets soft after few hours, so you can eat it by lunchtime!)
3. Cut sliced cheese to make windows.
((Hello Kitty Onigiri Rice Ball))
1. Put steamed rice in a bowl and mix a pinch of salt to taste. Stuff the rice into the Hello Kitty Onigiri Mold (spread the rice into the crevices of the mold with a small spoon). Place the lid and push the rice down. Remove the lid, then push the rice out from the mold.
2. Use the Hello Kitty Nori Punch to make eyes and whiskers.
3. Place the side dishes and rice in the bento box. Then arrange the small parts with tweezers.

You can also use a plastic wrap to form the Hello Kitty rice ball but it requires a great patience…

Vegetarian Kinpira - Video Recipe

I received many requests for Japanese vegetarian foods, so here is the one!
I made my popular recipe which I have already received 300 photo reports saying it was good, so I hope you like it ;)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BkKRmbtY2o

Kinpira is mostly seasoned with soy sauce, mirin (sweet sake), and sugar so it is pretty sweet, but instead of using sugar, I used ketchup, so my recipe is tasty ;) Also, I didn't use gobo (burdock root) but commonly available vegetables (such as potato, onion, and green pepper), so I hope you can try it out!!!



BTW, soy sauce is made by fermenting soya beans, so it is a vegetarian seasoning :D

Summer 2011 in New York

Hi! I'm back now :D

6 days in NY were amazingly fast. When I leave Japan, I had too many things to do, so I thought leaving them behind for 6 days is not good, but now I think I should have planned to stay more days!!! LoL

Day 1 (7/1):

This was our fast time to take Japanese airline ANA (All Nippon Airways) because there wasn't any empty seat for the cheaper ones (usually we take Delta or Continental). What surprised us was their meals!!! They were amazingly delicious!!! Free alcohol, of course :) I watched 4 movies since the seat was very comfortable. Time we arrived in NY was noon, so we took a walk outside (took a pic in front of 23 foot tall giant yellow teddy bear) and met our friends at night. Every year we stay at Grand Hyatt. The room was nicely renovated this year :)

Day2 (7/2):

We had a breakfast at Grand Central Terminal and went for a walk at The High Line! The weather was really hot but nice. I took my 10th hula video at Hudson River Park (Pier 62). I will write about it later. For lunch, we went to The Fat Radish where I found on a Japanese magazine. Their foods were very healthy and delicious with lots of vegetables: omelette with a bunch of greens :D Then for dinner we went to a Malaysian restaurant called Nyonya. What we ordered were their popular dishes: Home Made Roti Canai (Indian Pancake), Sizzling Nyonya Tofu, and Singapore Rice Noodles. They were all great!

Day 3 (7/3):

We went Rabbithole Restaurant in Brooklyn for Breakfast. I had their recommended Stuffed French Toast! Yummy :) My darling had eggs benedict! Then we shopped around and went to the Brooklyn Brewery. My darling was really excited having a beer there ;) It was raining all day long so we enjoyed shopping. My darling enjoyed shopping at Superdry and bought their tees and bag for himself! For dinner, we went to La Lanterna di Vittorio where is famous for Pizza and Pumpkin Cognac Cheesecake! They were of course delicious!!!

Day 4 (7/4):

OMG! I finally found a place to try the 3-tiered afternoon tea!!! Alice's Afternoon Tea serves the afternoon tea menu before and after noon, which is cool :) So, we had The Mad Hatter menu (2 for $37). Their scones (especially the mixed berry) and sandwiches were amazingly delicious! Yay!!! Then we shopped upper west and walked down to the hotel through the central park. We had a dinner at Rock Center Cafe (as usual - we eat here every year). It's the place where my darling and I dated for the 2nd time. On the Broadway, we found cool Forever 21 electric bulletin board! Can you see us waving hands?! LoL We didn't join the crowds, so we kind of saw the July 4th fireworks from 42nd street. hehe

Day 5 (7/5):

Can you believe it's already the 5th day?! Yeah, I was kind of feeling in that way at this time :'( We took a breakfast at hotel's Market. They are open 24 hours, which is very convenient! For a snack, we went to my long-planned Luke's Lobster! A Taste of Maine, you can try half of lobster, crab, and shrimp! I shared it with my darling but I thought I could eat them all by myself later. hehehe Then we walked up to Union Square to shop (we tried YOGO frozen yogurt - sold on trucks) and went to Limelight Marketplace (originally a church). I never get tired of shopping! For dinner, we went to Hummus Place and tried their recommended dishes: Hummus Masabacha and Shakshuka. No meats?! Yeah, they serve vegetarian dishes. The foods were delicious but we kind of needed meats. haha

Day 6 (7/6):

7/6 is the special day! My darling proposed to me at The Pond of Central Park 2 years ago :) So, we kind of coming back here every year at the same time eating breakfast. (We bought our breakfast at Pret A Manger. I really loved the foods there!) I thought my darling might not answer to my question, but I asked him "why time flies?" then he said, "kiss me and time will stop". Wow! Is that true?! I kissed him, of course. Nothing happened!!! haha We love walking together in the city. Of course, time flies… At night, we planned to go to a cozy restaurant in Battery Park, but it was under renovation (or it was gone…) so we moved to the South Street Seaport. There we found Lobster Paella ($75) at Il Porto. It was pretty expensive, but my darling said okay because it's our last dinner. Thanks XOXO I really enjoyed the dish. Also, I talked him about my recipe stuff (kind of reality) that is not going well, and he said "I don't expect anything, so do as you want." How come he is so nice to me :)

Day 7 (7/7):

Time to go home. Our flight was early in the morning, so we left the city at 8AM X( The way back was Continental, so it was not that comfy like ANA, but was friendly on the wallet!!!

Sorry for my lousy typing… I really want to write more in detail and post more pictures, but need to move on and create my new recipes for contests and YouTube videos! But actually, I spent 2 hours writing this post! LoL

I shoot one video today, so I am going to edit it this week! And tomorrow I have new hula class to attend…

I wish I could have more time!!!

See you again :)
