Buttery Pasta with Wasabi Avocado Topping

Have you tried my avocado pasta recipe?

I hope you liked it, and if you are looking for another version of it, here you go!

The last one was zesty lime and mellow cheese flavor of avocado was mixed with pasta, but this time, the dish is the mixture of Western Asian flavor. May I call it “pasta the world”? 😛

The buttery flavored pasta with vivid wasabi and a hint of savory sesame oil avocado topping create wonderful mixture of Western and Asian flavor. Once you bring the first bite, mellow buttery pasta and creamy avocado will spread the love of eating!

Grated Nagaimo Rice (Tororo Gohan)

Since summer is around the corner, our body should be ready for burning day. In my home country, nagaimo is one of the best food to fight heat.


In my home country’s summer, the amount of food people eat decrease because the humidity and the temperature rob our power. But nagaimo has power to digest food efficiently, it is considered as the best helper to survive scorching summer.


When you grate nagaimo, it become very slimy. In Japanese, we use toro or toro-toro or similar word to describe slimy texture stuff, so most of food with grated nagaimo is called tororo. When you buy nagaimo from the store, it may be gigantic. In fact, mine was over a yard size and it was the smallest one. I asked people who work at the store, but it was the tiniest one they could find, so I took home the one named tiniest-in-giant-world.

I used to love playing with slime when I was a kid, but looks like I love slimy food as well. So anyway, try this and stay healthy. Don’t lose summer!

Grilled Rice Ball

I bought a huge bag of short grain rice the other day, so I let my dinner buddy bring some rice ball lately. When we had brown rice, it doesn’t stick together so it was impossible to make rice ball, so my dinner buddy seems enjoying new recipe of lunch box, rice ball.


When I gave him rice ball with bonito flakes, sour plum, sesame seeds, looks like my signature recipe for rice ball had been running out. Well, maybe there are some more, but makeable with half asleep, I think that’s it.


He doesn’t complain, but I wanted to give a twist on my rice balls, so I grilled with soybean sauce flavor(well, yes, I’m still running out of soy sauce.) it is makeable by using soybean paste, miso, but soybean sauce is sweeter so I recommend using it.


Savory soybean flavor of crunchy rice ball. Sounds new to you? Give it a try. Sounds familiar? Your mouth must be watery just hearing grilled rice ball!
