Like an apple or an avocado, grated yamaimo tends to oxidate and darken in color. Or not, and that’s not previsible. But that was the case with this one so I’ve added juice of sudachi lime to keep it relatively creamy in color. That’s also a nice flavor addition.
Black natto (fermented soy beans). It’s often paired with grated wasabi.
Natto with rice is a regular breakfast item in Japan. So just that with tororo and green tea. A nice simple brunch.

Cooked in the rice cooker on brown rice program.

Platter of steamed veggies : suguna kabocha, satsuma imo, bok choi and chestnuts.

Pan-fried + baked.
The full shape… not a perfect ogive. I’m scared to put a name on the shape. You know what ? My online photo album refused this and a few in the series as their computer suspect it to be obscene.
The salad is made with yellow split peas.
I cooked them in the rice-cooker. I added veggies. It’s a balsamico oregano dressing added after the photos as it gives a dirty look to the dish and I don’t want more photos refused by the photo Inquisicion…
