Tomato Risotto

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!


I love tomato sauce, so do you, right?

I usually cook pasta by using tomato sauce, but this time I cooked tomato risotto.


No I was really going to make risotto, I didn’t change the dinner plan of cooking penne arrabbiata after I was surprised I had just ¼ box of pasta left on my pantry and my dinner buddy was coming back in 30 min.


Anyway, my tomato risotto came out just right. A rich flavor of a little sour but sweet tomato with bunch of veggies will make your meal time special 🙂

Mushroom Soy Rice (Takikomi-Gohan)

If you want to give a little change to ordinal white/brown rice, here is idea to mix them with veggies and mushroom.

When I was a child, this rice dish was one of my favorite dishes because it was served in special occasion so I could feel the day special. Also, just a small bowl of the rice has more veggies and mushroom, so I could realize that I’m eating right with rich nutrition.

The direction to make is super easy, so you should try it!

(Takana) Mustard Green Fried Rice

My parents sent me a package from my home country.

There are lots of chocolate candy that are impossible to get one even in asian market, so I was super excited to open it.

My mom also included some seasoning for me. It was supposed to use as pasta sauce, called takana pasta sauce. But to me, it wasn’t good with pasta. I didn’t want to waste it, so I’ve decided to use it as fried rice seasoning.

(Takana by the way is the mustard green. We as asian people eat it as pickles and put them in rice ball.)

I believe the seasoning can be purchased in asian grocery, so I put review too!

Veg-Egg Bowl

I wanted to eat oyako-don (literally parent and child bowl) from Japanese traditional home cooking.

It is made with some chicken and egg(this is why the dish is called parent and child) with savory soy sauce and sugar, but my dinner buddy won’t eat meat, so I cooked it with a variety of veggies.

Fluffy soft egg and soy sauce flavor of soup will definitely be your best buddy!
