I spent about three hours preparing our Anniversary dinner last night. It was a Japanese vegan dinner from the cookery book, Vegan Japaneasy: Over 80 Delicious Plant-Based Japanese Recipes.

In the photograph below, on the left is a

  • Shiitake, Onion and Potato Stew, and on the right is a
  • Portobello Mushroom and Onion ‘Sukiyaki’Bowl.

Both have a Mushroom Dashi, and the Sukiyaki Bowl also has a rich Sweet Soy Sauce, recipes for both were also taken from the book.

Outside it was wet and wintery, and so I enjoyed being in a warm kitchen, creating. These were only the second and third dishes that I had taken from Vegan Japaneasy, and I was very pleased with how they turned out.
