May 28th, Monday:
- Chinese Egg Soup (Crab Flakes, Tofu, Mustard Spinach, Carrot, Onion)
- Sesame Dressed Vegetables (Spinach, Bean Sprout, Carrot, Chikuwa Surimi)
- Deutzia (Soy Lees) Croquette
This sort of lunch–with vegetables and without meat– is exactly what I prefer. Unohana (deutzia) is a pretty word for okara or soy bean lees. Okara is a by-product of making tofu. If purchasing tofu, you can usually ask for the okara too, and they will give it to you free. Or at least, the tofu shop I go to does. I recommend you do so, because okara is quite delicious.
