Green Bean Salad

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!

Green bean was on sale at my local store the other day, so I bought a huge bag of them. After I cooked them by using garlic and pepper, there was still some left over waiting to be cooked another food.


Cooking another garlic stir fry was also great idea, but I wanted to try different thing keeping me exploring food recipe, so I’ve decided to cook salad.


This is another super easy and simple recipe consisted of: cook veggie, season veggie, toss veggie, just 3 steps! If you want one more dish to make your meal perfect, try this!

Roasted Butternut Squash Salad

Hello everyone, welcome to my new posting!

After I tried cooking butternut squash soup and realized it had very similar taste to pumpkin, I wanted to make salad by using it.

Pumpkin salad is also great, but I’m a little worried about using pumpkin because it has so hard skin, so I needed microwave to cut proper size, but I haven’t bought one since my move to new place. (It’s been already half year though!)

And my cooking experiment came out great. The creamy texture and sweetness of butternut squash gave me a wonderful side dish to my meal, so if you are bored one of the most popular dish of butternut squash, (the soup,) this is the one you should try 😀

Zesty Soybean and Dill Salad

Hi there, thank you for checking my new posting!


Do you buy dried bean or canned bean?


Well, Tanooki usually buy canned beans, but sometimes the other version of me whispers,


“Hey, are you kidding? Buying dried beans can save several % of cost. You can just boil them and you have more beans on your hand!! More beans, pay less. Now, return the canned bean on the shelf and go to the dried bean aisle!”


After huge debate on my mind, I have dried soy bean on my hand.


3 lbs.


So so so big bag of soybean while I never cooked soybean as bean shape.


Now, I need to find some recipe to cook this guy and tried making salad.

Using dill was also my first time and ended up making awesome salad.

A little crunchy soybean with zesty dressing with a hint of dill was great side dish for any cuisine, so you should try one too!

Soy Bean Salad

Hello hello, hello! Welcome to my new posting!


I love cooking with tofu, which is the rich source of protein.

But looking back my cooking history, I realized I had never cooked food by using true soybeans, all were food by using tofu, soy sauce, or soy milk.

I found a big bag of soybean the other day at store, so I bring it back to my house and try cooking with them.


This is my first recipe I used soybean as bean shape.


I put mayo on a little Japanese fusion (wasabi :P) so this bean salad will be the great company for your Japanese dish too!
