Gingery Tofu Ramen Bowls
What is more satisfying than a big bowl of ramen noodles? This vegetarian bowl is packed with crispy tofu that brings both protein and flavor to the table after it's crisped and coating in a tamari-maple sauce. The same tamari mixture is then blended with creamy nut butter of your choice to create a silky sauce that coats the noodles.
Japanese Milk Bread (Shokupan)
This pillowy soft, subtly sweet sandwich bread is a beloved breakfast staple in Japan and is typically eaten sliced very thick, lightly toasted, and served with accompaniments like butter and jam.
Miso is a fermented soybean paste. The lighter, or "white," version is milder and less salty than brown miso, and is sometimes referred to as sweet miso. It can be found in the Asian section of some supermarkets and most health-food stores.
Besides chicken and fish, this marinade is good with steak, tofu, or vegetables. In place of the vinegar and sugar, try mirin, Japanese cooking wine.
