Vegan Salad Pizza

image

Today I made a vegan pizza topped with basil, mixed greens, and roasted tomato. Instead of using butter in the dough, I used olive oil. I roasted tomatoes in the oven with Celtic sea salt. Finally I topped the pizza off with plenty of mixed greens and drizzled it with balsamic vinegar. It tasted delicious!

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!


Shio-koji Vegetable Recipes

IMG_2716  
Here are two different recipes that are healthy and super easy to make. I used shio-koji instead of salt as well. Shio-koji is very easy to make and a lot healthier than regular salt.

Shio-koji Steamed Salmon Recipe

Over the weekend we bought some fresh salmon at Whole Foods and decided to marinate it in shio-koji

 

Ingredients:

salmon

red onions

broccoli raab

Shio-koji

What you’ll need:

A steamer (we used a bamboo steamer)

Parchment paper

step 1 Massage the salmon with shio-koji and leave to marinate for up to one day

step 2 Cut and wash vegetables (not too thin or small because they will cook too much)

step 3 Layer ingredients on parchment paper, we put the broccoli raab on the bottom, then salmon, then onions on top.

step 4 wrap up the ingredients making a pouch

step 5 Put into steamer, and that’s it!  When the salmon is cooked all the way, take it out and enjoy!  The liquid on the bottom is the best part!
