I love cooking, but cooking food from scratch is hard especially working full time.
I usually post recipes that cook from scratch (even pie crust! :P.)
But today, I’d like to share recipe using popular sauce that can be easily obtained from local grocery market.
The magical ingredient is: Soyaki sauce!
Soyaki sauce is sold at Trader Joe’s, where fresh produce and variety of delicious product in cute packages. I had bought asian products only in the shop where specialized for Asian product, so buying Soyaki sauce at local Trader Joe’s was irregular event for me. But because of the package was super cute, I’d decided to give it a try.
I had some fresh tomato and glass noodle that needed to be cooked soon, so I combined it and seasoned with Soyaki sauce. If you feel like Asian cuisine, just try it and you won’t regret!
- 40g of glass noodle
- 1 large carrot (Thinly slice)
- 1 large egg
- 1 large tomato
- Some bunch of leek
- 2 tablespoon of soyaki sauce
- Some black pepper
- ½ tablespoon of olive oil
- Prepare ingredients
Slice veggies and beat egg in a bowl.
- Cook glass noodle
In a large pan, put water and bring it to boil, then cook glass noodle until they are well softened. Drain with water.
- Make scrambled egg
In a small pan, put olive oil and bring it to medium high heat. Add egg and stir well to make scrambled egg, and remove it from the pan.
- Grill veggies
In a large pan, put olive oil and bring it to medium high heat, then add veggies.
Add scrambled egg and glass noodle.
Pour Soyaki sauce and sprinkle some black pepper to taste.
The soyaki sauce contained flavorful garlic and ginger, savory soy sauce, and crunchy sesame seeds, so just using some tablespoon of sauce can transform your plain food to high level of Asian food. If you know ginger pork from Japanese cuisine, you can imagine what kind of taste the Soyaki sauce can give you. If you are looking for cons about the sauce, I’d say it is a little too sweet, and the liquid is easy to leak from the cap, so they might need to work on fixing that. If you consider about price, I strongly recommend to get one in store because the price of purchasing it online must be joking, about 4X!! This is why I gave 3 stars for price review. Let’s pray for a○a○○n to solve the problem! (the pic above takes you to the a○a○○n product page, but just use it for taking a quick glance.)
