Tomato risottoBy MariMy 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! Mari
Super Easy Vegetable Konyaku PaellaBy YThis is one of my favourite dishes. I remember that I had Paella once when I was small and I was blown away by that yellow rice. It was Paella. Since then, I have been a big fan of Paella. Cooking Paella may sound difficult to you but actually it's not, especially with Dried Konyaku as you don't need to worry about how much rice is cooked. This Dried Konyaku Paella is super easy, very healthy and mouth-watering! Fumi
One plate sukiyaki – Egg Florentine styleBy MariSukiyaki is one of the best-loved dishes in Japan. It is made up of sliced meat, tofu and vegetables cooked together in a large pan in Sukiyaki sauce. Before being eaten the food is often dipped in a whisked raw egg. People outside of Japan don't always want to try the raw egg dip though. Our Egg Florentine style Konyaku gives a similar experience to how Japanese people eat sukiyaki. It allows you to try Japan’s most famous dish on one plate with a poached egg.

Konyaku NorimakiBy MariKonyaku is an original, healthy and great alternative to rice in this traditional Japanese sushi. This is a real treat which can also be very entertaining as all the family can participate. Children in particular find hand-rolling Temakis very enjoyable. This recipe explains not only how to roll Makis but also Temakis (hand-roll). Have fun and Enjoy! Tsuyoshi @ ex-Otabe Kafe Photographed by Mike Slattery
Gomadare Konyaku Dry RamenBy MariThis recipe takes its inspiration from “Wafu Pasta” (Japanese style pasta dish). By using Konyaku rather than pasta makes this recipe not only healthier but also gives it a similar feeling to a ramen dish because of the firm texture and curly shape of the noodles. Gomadare is a traditional Japanese sauce used for "Hiyashi Chuka Gomadare" (Cold Ramen with Sesame sauce). Gomadare is often used on the side of other Japanese dishes such as Shabu-Shabu, Udon or Soba noodles as a dipping sauce. It is a very delicious and versatile dressing which suits perfectly Konyaku. This recipe can easily be adapted to suit different dietary needs (gluten free, vegetarian diet). Tsuyoshi @ ex-Otabe Kafe Photographed by Mike Slattery
Mizu Taki – Japanese Style Hot PotBy MariIt is cold outside and during this season, we very often have Hot Pot. Here I would like to introduce the most simple Hot Pot, Mizu-Taki (水炊き) which means simmer in water. Does it sound easy to cook? Yes! Does it sound not so delicious? Yes! It is delicious! Believe me! You can find great tastes from the vegetables themselves and the secret is in the dipping sauce. That combination is like magic!
