My kids always love margherita pizza which is basic and simple but never disappoints them. I thought I can make something like this, simple and basic but delicious risotto. So here is the one. It maybe a bit cheat recipe as I use vegetable stock but it is delicious! Konyaku Rice absorbs the stock flavour and it’s perfect for your quick lunch!
This is a refreshing salad for the hot summer season. The basic is inspired by Greek Salad however I added coriander as I like it so much. Its aromatic flavour combines greatly with feta cheese and chick peas. If the coriander is too strong for you or your family, parsley works as well. There are lots of different nutrients and it is filling as there is Dried Konyaku Rice in it. Perfect as the healthy lunch or a side dish for dinner.
This recipe is inspired by “ika somen (squid pasta)” in Japan. The clear konyaku looks like thin squid sashimi however this dish doesn’t contain any fish and is suitable for a vegetarian diet.
This very original canape is full of flavour and has a stylish look. Why not try it with a glass of homemade lemonade or a glass of Saké?
For gluten free option, please ensure your miso is gluten free (Miso paste often contain cereals such as wheat or barley).
