This is a fusion of Japanese tradition and new vegan style.
I serve some dishes with fresh home grown vegetables.
So dishes change depending on vegetables we harvest.
I may use fish stock or eggs.
Please let me know if you would like to have complete vegan meal or you have something you don't want to eat.
Tofu (豆腐), also known as bean curd, is a food prepared by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks. Tofu has a low calorie count and relatively large amount of protein. Deep fried tofu is called atsuage (厚揚げ) in Japan. The thinner variety, called aburaage (油揚げ), develops a tofu pouch often used for inari-sushi.Soft tofu can also be broken up or mashed and mixed with raw ingredients prior to being cooked. For example, Japanese ganmodoki is a mixture of chopped vegetables and mashed tofu.
