Variety Mushroom Soup

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!


How’s everyone doing today?


Tanooki is already started to use heater, and it’s incredible by thinking about I almost never used heater when I lived in LA. Moving to very up North makes that different. Oh wow, it’s surprising, and when can I see the sunlight next?


Anyway, when I was in LA, soup to me was just miso soup to make my Japanese food perfect. However, I realized I cook soup so often lately. A cold weather makes soup more delicious and it can change my eating habit so much.


Usually I pair up my pasta dish with salad, but I need something warm dish. My ref always have a variety of mushroom, so mushroom soup is one of my favorite dish for both cooking and eating.


Umami from mushroom add rich flavor to creamy soy milk, and nice hot soup will go into your stomach before you know it! 🙂

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!


As many people know already, autumn has come. There are many pumpkin or squash dish lined up in grocery store and almost everyone of the customer has at least one product of that.


Also, there are so many posting appeared on SNS saying, “yay, it’s finally pumpkin season so I made pumpkin cake” or “cooking for one of the best soups in the world in autumn; butternut squash soup!”


And I’m not the exception. The reasons are: 1) Because I have never cooked food with butternut squash while I have cooked pumpkin, so this must be the best opportunity to give it a try. 2) I finally got a food processor so I need to cook something to test drive for my new gadget!


It’s rain season where I live right now, so something can warm up my body is good idea. Also trying basic recipe gives me some idea for what butternut squash is like, so the most popular recipe, soup, is the perfect idea this time!


Slowly roasted butternut squash in a oven has incredibly sweet, and thick and rich soup can comfort your stomach with warming your body up!

Sweet Corn Soup

Corn soup.


This is one of my most popular guy in my soup recipe.


Although miso soup is the one which appears on my meal the most since I was a child, corn soup is the second most popular soup because I could get it from vending machine and me as kid used to beg my mom to buy me every time we passed in front of vending machine during winter.


The taste was always good, but if I’m allowed to complain, the chunk of corn always stuck the bottom of a can. Since I got it from vending machine, there were no fancy spoon given to let me dig the can through tiny hole.


If I tried to get every tiny corn that stuck on the can, I think there must be more than dozen of can of corn, and I always dream about have them again.


So anyway, today’s recipe is corn soup, as you can reckon.


The creamy sweet taste with chunk of corn will comfort your stomach, and it will never let you frustrated for digging up soup pot to get stuck corn. (Please have your own spoon, by the way:)
