Frugal : soba with okra tororo

It’s hot and humid. Meals have to be simple.
This Summer in Japan, due to electricity shortage, we can’t afford living in the air conditioned world. I wouldn’t anyway. It’s hot. It will be hotter. Food can be our climatisation and help the body adapt to the season.

Neba neba ! It’s the onomatopea for this texture.
Sluggish food is an acquired taste… but when you got it, that’s yummy ! I’m addicted to it.

Okura tororo :
Okra (gombos) briefly blanched and cut, cut, into a paste. Plus lemon juice and a little soy sauce.

juwari soba , 100% buckwheat noodles.
soba soba-mania, many soba variation

With more nama shoyu (raw soy sauce).
