  • Fumi's Favorite Gyoza (dumpling) Recipe

    I make about 200 dumplings at a time and freeze them. It is a bit of a production to make, but it is so worth it. I'm always excited when I get to eat these, it's not like a sad frozen dinner, and they are so convenient. Try these gyoza with steamed rice and some sauteed bean sprouts, and beer!
  • Matcha Butter Cookies

    We love matcha! These butter cookies aren’t too sweet and they highlight the delicate bitterness of matcha (green tea powder). Fumi has been gobbling these up. Enjoy with a cup of hot tea.

  • Easy Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

    Have you ever had a latke before? They're a type of potato pancake that's part of the Jewish cuisine and traditionally prepared for Hanukkah. It's absolutely delicious and quite easy to make! We made some recently and wanted to share the recipe with you all.
  • Beet Kinpira

    Do you know about kinpira-gobo? We used to make it for our orinigiri (Japanese rice ball) when we had a store front on Dupont street in Toronto. Kinpira is usually made with burdock roots and carrots.

    Since I am in Japan, I sent OKAZU to my Japanese friends to see how they use it. 

    This recipe is from one of my friends who make kinpira with beets instead of burdock roots and carrots. It's super easy and delicious, so I wanted to share it with you!

  • Easy Sticky Cauliflower Steaks

    Cauliflower steaks are one of those foods that are so delicious and easy to throw together. We made these sticky OKAZU cauliflower steaks recently, and they were quite the treat! 
  • Easy Crispy Brussels Sprouts

    Brussel sprouts make the perfect side dish to any vegan, vegetarian or keto meal. Plus they're so easy to make and contain a ton of fiber as well as Vitamin K and A!

  • Easy OKAZU Edamame Hummus

    Hummus is one of our favourite foods. Its incredible taste combined with its creaminess really adds another level of flavour and texture to any dish. It's also highly nutritious and easy to prepare. To make things even better, there are so many versions hummus - you're bound to find a favourite! 
  • Easy Smashed Potatoes with OKAZU

    Smashed potatoes are one of the easiest ways to enjoy potatoes! They're absolutely delicious, and quite nutritious too. We made these ones over the weekend in just under an hour! They were super quick to whip and just so satisfying as they paired very nicely with our grilled tofu and salad.
  • Easy Black Pepper Miso Soup with Vegetables

    This easy vegetable soup recipe is so delicious and comforting, it really hits the spot! Consisting of 5 ingredients and prepared in under 15 minutes, this quick, healthy soup will become one of your favourites. Thank you to Diane for creating this yummy, wholesome recipe with our miso soup!
  • Easy Udon Noodle Stir Fry

    Udon noodles are the best. They're a lot of fun to eat and their thickness really helps to hold onto all that yummy sauce. They also make for the easiest dinners, and are a great way of using up whatever veggies you have in the fridge.

  • Easy Miso Ginger Tahini Dressing

    Homemade salad dressings are the best! Not only are they healthier than store-bought dressings, but we get to know exactly what's going into them. We made this super easy miso dressing, and the flavours were just exceptional, we had to share it with you guys! The ginger, tahini and miso create the most flavourful experience. 

  • Easy Grilled Corn with Miso Butter and OKAZU

    Grilled summer corn is one of our favourite ways to enjoy our Instant Miso Soup and OKAZU! Grilling on the stove is a great alternative in case your BBQ gets rained on. A simple and easy recipe for summer!
