Sorry for the bad quality but I wanted to share with you this easy lazy but yummy recipe.
It's steamed eggplant with a miso sauce from the supermarket.
I find steamed eggplant very sweet and the texture and taste is very different from stir fried eggplant for example.
I used the sauce called かけてみそ but any similar sauce would do.
Oh the dish is inspired by 茄子田楽 nasu dengaku😊
Not sure the recipe is authentic but it's yum 😋
If you don't eat meat, can easily switch meat to usuage tofu product^^
Cabbage and tofu salad with ship kombu.
I had never tried shio kombu but one of my coworkers made me try this salad and now I'm addicted 😊
I don't add dressing sauce but you could add sesame oil or Japanese style dressing to this salad.
Package of shio kombu looks like this:
Reference recipe (Japanese):
Cold using noodles with chicken topping in a sesame based cold soup 😊 one of my summer dishes 😋
One of my favorite summer dishes 😋 doesn't photograph well but it's damn good!

I believe the English word for Goya is bitter melon. It is bitter as it says so some ppl don't like it so much. Personally I really like the balance of this dish: bitterness of the Goya with sweetness of the pork meat.
Homemade soymeat gyoza.
@Amanda look bomb 😍 funny enough I've never handmade gyoza 😅😅
You Should try! Not that hard!
Cold tofu with different toppings, perfect for Summer days because very refreshing and easy to eat.
Ingredients & directions (for 2 ppl)
1 pack of silken tofu
2 tbsp of ponzu sauce
Drain the tofu. Meanwhile cut the cucumber and the tomato into dices. Put the tofu on a serving dish and add the cut raw veggies on top. Add ponzu sauce.
Oh, good idea!
I usually use momendofu cut into big chunks on green salad or cabbage salad drizzled with ponzu sauce or gomadare.
I don't know if it fits in this category but I'm attempting to make umeboshi for the first time this year and this is how it is so far. It's just a few days after I washed and prepared the plums, put them in Ziploc bags with a bit of alcohol and salt: the liquid seen is plum vinegar, basically coming out of the plums.
Gyoza. My family’s favorites.
