Japan Society hold a lecture “Taste of Home Series Flipping Out: Okonomiyaki”. Okonomiyaki (okonomi: whatever you want/ yaki: grilled) cooking demonstration was run by Chef Shigenori Matsumoto on the stage with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto who brought unexpected very humorous conversation. We could hear delicious sizzling noise and smell the flavorful Japanese pancake, and LOVE their entertaining stage manners…I love Hiroshima style Okonomiyai which use more vegetable than Kansai style. From this lecture I learned that Tofu Okonomiyaki would be a great way to add protein for who is a vegetarian like me. I am going to cook Okonomiyaki in this long winter!

Kale meets tofu, I will call it is a megafood. Kale provides high levels of a number of essential nutrients and may help to lower your blood pressure. Raw kale contains the higher amount of antioxidants and zinc than cooked kale. Tofu is an excellent source of protein, iron, and calcium. Let’s mix them up and eat raw- You will need only kale, tofu, ginger, salt, sesame oil and sesame seeds (option).
