Deep-fried harusame + veg

Forgot to write up this dish from a while back. It didn’t quite come out as Yusuke expected, but I thought it was pretty cool. There were two components: fried harusame and a veggie stir fry. To begin with the routine side, Yusuke whipped up a typical stir fry with soy sauce and oyster sauce, […]

Here we have かぼちゃサラダ, or squash salad. Well, it’s not really Japanese kabocha, but rather soft, flavourful acorn squash from our CSA basket. For efficiency’s sake, Yusuke began by microwaving the squash for about 2 minutes. He then cut it into smaller cubes, which were microwaved for another 4-5 minutes. After that, he “smashed it […]
