That’s my ideal. Good simple food. With a twist.
Here is a new version of mehari-zushi (sushi in pickled leaf). Again ? Well, those leaves can be stored years when you buy them -or when you make them properly. But mines have to be eaten within the week…
Hatsuga genmai (germinated brown rice) and ukon (turmeric). This yellow spice is a common addition to the pickle.
Green egg shaped edamame (boiled green soy beans).
Wrapped in leaves of takana (mustard greens, pickled). So technically, they are not sushi without vinegar, but they become sour enough thanks to the leaves.
There is green tea in my pasta and my plate looks like a garden today. Happy !
Add 1 tbs of matcha (green tea powder) to 1 cup of flour or semolina, mix well and make pasta as usual.
I like them thick and thin, that depends on days. This time, the mood was for thick tagliatelle.
I used what was in the fridge : like leafy mini daikon (leaves had been eaten, I wonder by who…), red cabbage and carrot. A dry chili. New onion. Stir-fry in olive oil. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Add in the cooked pasta. Yes, there were 2 volumes of veggies for one of pasta. That’s the perfect ratio.
Serve with 2 sides, well 2 desserts…
A season citrus. It’s a sort of pomelo. It’s very sweet and flavored, not bitter at all.
子夏 (konatsu) or 日向夏 (hyuganatsu). The first name means “little Summer”.
