July 2nd, Monday:
- Miso Soup (Tofu, Spinach, Shimeji Mushroom)
- Shore Simmered Soybeans (Hijiki Seaweed, Satsuma-age, Carrot, Green Bean, Soybean, Sliced Konnyaku)
- Teriyaki Amberjack
Hijiki, along with konbu and wakame, has been eaten in Japan since long ago. It is thought to have been eaten in the Jomon Period, about 16500 years ago.
Some people don’t like it, but hijiki is very delicious. It has such a wholesome rich taste, some what like eating bread with lots of whole grains. Mix that that soybeans, satsuma-age, and konnyaku, I really don’t see how you can wrong. It is such a nice meal for everyday. It went nicely with the amberjack too.
