Daikon radish salad. I sliced up the daikon radish and added in lots of shiso leaves from our garden. It goes well with sesame dressing!
I made some custard flan! The combination of the simple flavours of eggs, milk and sugar makes a delicious dessert!
Beans from our backyard garden. I steamed the beans then added grinded black sesame seeds, walnuts, miso and a little maple syrup.
Sweet potato gyoza! Steam then mash the sweet potato, then wrap the gyoza in the skin. Bake it in the oven until golden then sprinkle some sugar, cinammon, or maple syrup if you like! It's a great little snack!
'Obon' is a time to welcome back the souls of our ancestors! The cucumber horse is made to quickly pick up the ancestors and the eggplant cow is to take them back slowly enjoying the ride. These were both made by my grandkids to pick up their grandpa and greatgrandpa!
Brown rice mochi! Covered with kinako(soybean powder), black sesame, and grated daikon radish!Mochi goes well with Japanese tea!
Organic vegetable 'nimono' (simmered). I used 3 kinds of potatoes, daikon radish, carrots, tofu and simmered it slowly!
