Wasabi Guacamole Japonés (Japanese-Style) - Video Recipe

Cómo hacer guacamole Japonés muy fácil y delicioso!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T-BKDFuNWw

I used wasabi instead of chili, cayenne pepper, or any hot spices.



Very simple and tasty, so I hope you like this idea :D

---------------------------------
Wasabi Guacamole Japonés (Japanese-Style Wasabi Guacamole)

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 10min
Number of servings: 2 people

Ingredients:
1 ripe avocado
100g (3.5oz.) sashimi grade red tuna
50g (1.7oz.) tomato
1 tbsp. or more Parmigiano-Reggiano
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Usukuchi Shoyu (light-colored soy sauce) *saltier and has a thinner texture than the regular dark-colored soy sauce
1 tsp. or more Wasabi in tube *freshly grated Wasabi is perfect
1 tsp. sesame oil
chopped green onion (or asatsuki) *if preferred
unflavored tortilla chips

Directions:
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, dip the tomato for a few seconds to soften the skin, then peel. Seed tomato and cut into small pieces.
2. Cut red tuna into small pieces.
3. Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado. Add lemon juice (to prevent browning) and mash some more to coat.
4. Add Usukuchi Shoyu (light-colored soy sauce) and Wasabi mixture and sesame oil. Using a spoon, gently mix to keep the flavor of wasabi and sesame oil.
5. Then, fold in tomato, tuna, and freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.
6. Sprinkle some chopped green onion (if preferred) and serve immediately with tortilla chips.

*Another way to serve: Serve on top of toasted baguette slices with Shiso leaves! Sprinkle white sesame seeds and/or chopped green onion if available.

Christmas Broccoli Tree

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 1 Christmas tree

Ingredients:
1 large broccoli crown
salt
Kewpie Mayonnaise
dressing of your choice
star-shaped processed cheese

Directions:
1. Lightly wash the broccoli crown and cut into bite-sized florets. Boil water in a large pot. Add a pinch of salt in the boiling water (salt removes oxalic acid - bitter taste, and makes the broccoli nice and green). Boil broccoli for about 3 minute. Drain and cool down until you can touch.
2. Pile up the broccoli florets on a plate and mold them with your hands to shape like a tree.
3. Decorate the tree with mayonnaise (like a garland) and place the star-shaped cheese (attach it with a toothpick) on top of the tree. Pour some dressing of your choice over the tree and eat ;D

Non-Fried Korokke (Croquette-Like Potato Salad) - Video Recipe

Korokke (Croquette) is a parcel of food such as minced meat or vegetables, shaped into a cylinder or circle, encased in breadcrumbs and deep fried. I already posted my korokke recipe before but this one is different.

I served the potato mixture on a rusk instead of deep frying it with panko, which makes it really healthy. The rusk gives crispy texture like panko, so you can enjoy korokke in a different form.

BTW, it's a yummy tasty potato salad as well ;)

Broccoli Tree

This is one of my popular Christmas recipes. Already more than 50 people photo reported me and said it turned out great!

Because I don't have any Christmas tree at home, I created my tree using broccoli. It truly gives you the Christmas spirit ;)

Broccoli is known to contain anti-cancer compound called sulforaphane. However, the benefits are considerably reduced if the broccoli is overcooked. To ensure maximum nutrition and cancer-fighting power of broccoli, the best way to prepare is to boil or steam it lightly about 3 minutes until the broccoli is tough-tender.

---------------------------------
Broccoli Tree

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
1 bunch of broccoli
1 tsp. salt
mayonnaise
your favorite dressing
process cheese

Directions:
1. Carefully wash broccoli and remove all traces of dirt. Cut and trim florets into pieces. Cook broccoli florets in a large pot of boiling salted water for 3 minutes, until bright green and tender-crisp. Drain in a colander and cool down. The salted water will bring out the color and flavor in the broccoli! You can also steam them (without salt).
2. Pile the broccoli florets (stem-side in) on a plate and mold with hands. Cut out process cheese with a 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter. Attach a toothpick and place it on the top of the tree.
3. Decorate the tree with mayonnaise and pour your favorite dressing over the tree!

You can add grape tomatoes as ornaments :D

My original recipe in Japanese is HERE.

Healthy Tofu Rolled Pork Steak Salad

This is a healthy main dish salad recipe using TOFU!

As you might know, there are many different types of tofu. For this recipe, you need momen-dofu (cotton tofu), which is firm tofu comes in a plastic container in the refrigerator or produce section of most grocery stores. The skin of this form of tofu has the pattern of the muslin used to drain it. It is best used in stir fries, tofu bakes or any dish where you will want the tofu to retain its shape.

To finish up this recipe, you can use your own favorite dressing! I recommend a garlic flavored one because it gives steak-like rich taste. You want to make it filling since this dish is very healthy ;) I used GABAN's soy sauce-based garlic pepper dressing! Mmm! It was pretty savory! My recipe won a prize at their contest, too!

---------------------------------
Healthy Tofu Rolled Pork Steak Salad

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 2

Ingredients:
6 thin slices of spare rib pork (any portion of sliced pork is okay)
300g (0.6lb.) momen-dofu / firm tofu
salt and cracked black pepper
starch
cooking oil
2-3 tbsp. garlic flavored dressing of your choice
salad of your choice

Directions:
1. Wrap tofu in a paper towel and microwave for 2 minutes (500w) to remove moisture. Cut tofu into 6 rectangular pieces.


2. Work with one slice of pork at a time. Place the slice of pork so that the length of it is running flat and vertically towards you. Sprinkle a bit of salt and cracked black pepper onto one side and place the tofu (1.) on the end of the pork close to you and start rolling. Repeat with the remaining pork slices and tofu, then lightly coat them with starch.

3. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan, place the rolls seam side down, make sure to flip the rolls so that all sides are cooked equally crisp and brown.


4. Surround the rolls with salad of your choice, and then spoon garlic flavored dressing of your choice.

You know what!? I just searched about the course I said I wanna take and found that it is extremely expensive compared to the other similar qualifications. Some people say that this association gathers the money for their operational costs :(
I think I need to search more before I decide...
