ginger pork over rice, hard boiled egg, baby carrots (raw), soy steeped asparagus with bonito flakes
not shown: dried apricots for dessert
those little totoro snack containers are one of the best investments i ever made.
simmered carrots – 1/4c water, 1T soy sauce, 1T mirin (add more or less to taste), bring to a boil, add baby carrots and simmer until carrots are super soft. great for someone who loves cooked carrots (personally i hate them but this is for my boyfriend)
ginger pork – you don’t have to get the fancy thin sliced pork from the japanese market, you can just get a sharp knife and slice some pork loin on your own (lower fat content too). it will slice easier if it’s still slightly frozen. slice pork and marinate in 1 1/2T soy sauce and 1t finely grated ginger (and juice). i marinate it while i’m preparing the other things. once its marinated, stir fry until done!
seafood tamagoyaki – using canned seafood like crab, salmon, or clams. beat 1 egg with 1t dashi broth and 1t soy sauce, add 1 or 2 T canned seafood. make an omelette in a japanese omelette pan, and slice into thirds.
