Dried Daikon Stirfry

October 18th, Wednesday:

  • Egg Drop Miso Soup (Egg, Green Onion, Wakame Seaweed)
  • Dried Daikon Stir-fry (Dried Daikon, Satsumaage, Carrot, Hijiki, Green Bean, Konnyaku)
  • Salt-Broiled Trout
  • Rice
  • Milk
  • Kcal: 753

Kiriboshi (Dried) Daikon is daikon radish that has been cut into narrow strips and dried in the sun. Drying them in the sun gives their nutrition and sweetness a power-up.

I liked today’s lunch. I am a fan of hijiki. It has such a lovely wholesome taste that makes me feel energetic and healthy after eating it. Not to mention I also love konnyaku and satsuma-age, which were stirfried with it. Salt broiling is a nice way to cook fish as well, as it gives it a clean ungreasy taste. And you can’t really go wrong with egg drop soup. It was one of my favourite dishes to cook when I was a school child.

Two sweets I received at my desk. The red one is 亀田の柿の種 (Turtlefield’s Persimmon Seeds), a sort of rice cracker snack from Okinawa that goes well with beer. The other one is called 楡の街 (Elm Quarter), from a sweet shop in Wassamu, Hokkaido. It is a sort of biscuit made of crystallized sugar and egg, embedded with almond or pumpkin seeds.
