Vegan Thanksgiving: Prep
感謝祭の準備

This is our first 100% plant-based Thanksgiving, and I was a bit nervous but at the same time quite excited. We were invited to my brother-in-law’s house for their 3 o’clock dinner, and I volunteered to bring a few vegetable dishes. One of the dishes I wanted to bring was this Japanese Soy Braised Kabocha […]

Red Kuri Squash

This deep dish pizza oven was gifted to Terry by his dad. We press the dough on the dish. Spread homemade cheese, then […]

I found this beauty at the local farmers market. This is called konjac and it’s a popular ingredient of this type of soup. Konjac is not a root vegetable […]
