Black beans simmered with organic rice syrup with a little bit of sea salt. It is has a really nice sweetness to it. This dish comes from a Japanese macrobiotic recipe.
Using organic white sesame, soy milk and tahini, I made tofu from scratch. Slow cook over low heat. This taste reminds me of my grandma - she made amazing sesame tofu.
It has been warabi season in Canada. All around Nanaimo, you can go pick lots of warabi. Overnight, soak them in water with a little bit of baking soda and the next day, cook with dashi. Delicious!
