Osechi-Ryori Completed!


After much preparation we finally finished making all of the dishes that we wanted to have in our osechi-ryori.

This year we made kobumaki (carrot, fried tofu, and burdock root wrapped in kelp), kuromame (black soybeans simmered in a sweet and savory sauce made from soy sauce and sugar), shio-koji Tai (red snapper marinated in shio-koji), dattemake (a sweet Japanese rolled omelet made with fish cake and egg), chikuzen-ni (assorted vegetables braised in a sweet and savory stock), namasu (shredded daikon and carrot in a sweet and sour vinegar sauce), tataki gobo (burdock root with sesame sauce), o-zoni (a soup made with stock taken from bonito and kelp) and kuri-kinton (sweet potato and chestnut dessert).

Over the next few days I will be sharing the recipes for these tasty dishes!

    Wow! This looks fantastic!! I am extremely impressed. Maybe next year I will be able to make a few more things… we’ll see. Where do you shop for those Japanese ingredients?

    Thank you! I usually go to Sunrise supermarket in the East Village, NY for Japanese ingredients. Recently I have been finding a lot of Japanese produce at Whole Foods Supermarket as well, for example Japanese sweet potatoes, adzuki beans, and white kidney beans for shiro-an. I bought the Tai (red snapper) that is in this picture at Whole Foods as well!

    Yeah, I used to go to that Sunrise mart too, before the baby arrived… Upper west side needs a good Japanese grocery store for sure. I am so happy that whole foods carries Japanese sweet potatoes, too! The upper west side WF has them, but not all the time. White kidney beans for shiro an!! Didn’t think of that one. Thank you for the tip! Your foods look absolutely beautiful. I am gonna try some of your Japanese sweets recipes.

      Yeh, there really aren’t Japanese Supermarkets on the Upper West Side. That must be inconvenient. I know that a Dainobu opened on 36 West 56th street but that still must be far from you. Hope you can find some good ingredients at WF! Thank you for your comment!

Mung beans are amazing, but I am here to show you that there is more to vegan cooking than tasty little legumes!
