One Plate Veggie Lunch


We had the coldest weekend this season and we spent pretty much the whole time in the house (although we did go to a hockey game that we could get to with a skyway).

Since I had a lot of time at home, I got to spend a lot of time for my hobbies including cooking.

This is a one plate lunch I made for Terry on Sunday.


Inari Sushi (sushi rice in seasoned soy pouch).


Japanese Potato Stew with Sundried Tomatoes.


Indonesian Peanut Creamed Spinach and Walnut


Yuzu Daikon Radish


I was going to make a BENTO Box, but I’m still waiting for my new boxes and they are still not here yet.

I’m really hoping to receive them sometime soon!

I have gotten spoiled lately with Amazon Japan.

I recently bought a few things from them, and all the products were sipped from Japan, but they were here within TWO days!!

I know it’s not a typical airmail delivery, but after the experience, three weeks seem so long (and wrong?)…

Japanese Potato Stew with Sundried Tomatoes

canola oil
1 onion, sliced
2 carrots, cut into bite sized pieces
4 potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup dried Japanese Hijiki seaweed
2-3 tablespoons sundried tomatoes
2-3 cups water
2~3 table spoons soy sauce
2~3 tablespoons sugar

1. Sautee vegetables in oil.
2. Add Hijiki seaweed and sundried tomatoes. Continue to cook.
3. Add water, soy sauce, sugar, and salt. Boil and then turn down to low heat. Continue to cook until the vegetables are cooked through. Cool and refrigerate. Re-heat before serving.

I’m on Instagram.

    Hi! Looks really good! Are those soy pouches something you buy or did you make them? I need to find a good international market here in Bellingham.

    Hi Lori!
    SO good to hear from you. These soy pouches are store-bought. My mom never ever used store-bought ones, so I feel a little bad about this… But these pre-cooked ones taste pretty good and make the preparation super quick and easy, so I usually like to keep a can or two in my pantry.

    Lori, I think you should start a food blog, too. I would love to learn about the food scene on the west coast. 🙂
