What's cookin' in Mamatouille's kitchen?
- steamed carrots with sea salt
- shinmai (newly harvested rice from our friends' fields) cooked in the rice cooker with chopped sweet potatoes (from another friend's garden): to turn it into the round shape you see above, just wet a bowl with water, pack the rice in, then turn it upside down (I got the idea of the sweet potatoes with rice from a restaurant lunch date we had the other day). I sprinkled a bit of sea salt on top.
- sushi-grade tuna that I bought on sale and cooked in the frying pan with olive oil--topped with salt, pepper, garlic, lemon juice, and parsley (the topping was sauteed myoga (related to ginger, but a totally different taste) and chopped green onion)
- sauteed sliced eringi mushrooms and green beans (olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic)
