My green fix, with nanohana (rape blossoms.
With some râpées (grated potatoes, with cut of nanohana and parsley).
The soup is made of the stalks and bigger leaves of the nanohana, juiced. And some fresh sakekasu (sake lees). The soup is cooked a few minutes till it thickens.
That’s a new one. It’s less sweet than the Autumn one, but still sweet and mellow. That balances the bitterness of the vegetable.
Steamed blossoms to complete. That’s a a very green lunch.
The word râpé means grated. Grated, because they cook quicker. If you want a meal ready in a few minutes : grate !
A purple sweet potato, and red Kintoki carrot. Two veggies that are just excellent without any seasoning.
Râpées. Then the carrot is ready in 2 minutes, the potato 5 minutes, in the steam mode of the micro-wave. Then I shaped them in a small mold and reheated with :
Chicken liver pan-fried with onions.
That was great.
