How to Make Dashi (Japanese Soup Stock)Recipes
Dashi is an incredibly simple broth, and it forms one of the culinary cornerstones of Japanese cooking. It’s made in about 10 minutes with just three ingredients: water, kombu (dried kelp), and bonito fish flakes. The resulting clear broth tastes like the essence of the sea. Dashi can be used to make a fantastic bowl of miso soup, to poach fish or vegetables, or to add savory umami flavor to any number of Japanese recipes. Here’s how to make dashi broth at home.

How To Make Japanese Rice on the StoveRecipes
Rice is rice, right? Not quite. Short-grain Japanese rice is quite different from long-grain basmati or jasmine rice, so achieving the right texture — glossy and tender but not sticky — calls for a particular cooking method. A fancy rice cooker makes the process easy, but it isn’t a necessity. Making perfect Japanese rice on the stove is simple, requiring only a good pot and careful listening skills.

What Exactly Is Sushi?Skills
The word “sushi” is often ambiguous for non-native Japanese. We think of it as being interchangeable with raw fish. Sushi is vinegared rice topped with other ingredients. Sashimi, which is slices of raw fish alone, is not sushi because it isn’t accompanied with rice. Originally, sushi was fermented fish with rice preserved in salt, and this was a staple dish in Japan for a thousand years until the Edo Period (1603 to 1868) when contemporary sushi was developed.

A Visual Guide to 10 Varieties of Asian GreensSkills
I love the vegetable section in Asian grocery stores because there are so many greens to choose from, especially when I’m tired of kale and chard. But for those who haven’t cooked a lot with Asian greens, the produce aisle might be a bit overwhelming, especially since the greens can go by multiple names. As with most greens, Asian greens can be steamed, stir-fried, stewed, braised, chopped, and cooked in dumplings or soups. Some of these can even be served raw in salads!

How to Make Buckwheat Soba Noodles from ScratchRecipes
I must confess to eating this entire bowl of soba by myself. I didn’t share. I didn’t look up from the bowl. I just inhaled. Fresh buckwheat soba is an entirely different food group from the dried soba we usually buy at the store. It’s like night and day. The nutty aroma of the buckwheat, the perfect chewiness of the noodles, the way they slip perfectly around a chopstick — fresh soba needs little more than some dashi and a splash of soy sauce to be the perfect meal.

If you’ve ever visited an izakaya in Japan, chances are you’ve had this braised pork belly dish called buta no kakuni.

It’s a very simple dish that requires little preparation, and is a good introductory dish if you want to learn more about Japanese home-style cooking.

Celebrate Spring With A Hanami PicnicPeople
In Japanese, the word “hanami” means “flower viewing,” whether the flowers are cherry (“sakura,”) plum (“ume,”) or some other fruit tree in bloom. Probably the most popular hanami event centers around the blooming of the cherry trees between the end of March and the beginning of April. During hanami time in Japan, people attend and/or host outdoor picnics and parties under the blooms, either during the day or at night.

Is This a Loaf of Bread or a Baby’s Arm?Skills
The Internet’s latest “this-or-that” posts compare baby rolls to bread rolls. Can you tell which is which? Parents in Japan are using this Twitter hashtag to show the striking similarities between their babies’ roly-poly arms and a pull-apart snack bread from 7-Eleven. It’s a little different from the this-or-that posts we’ve seen before, but I think this is the best yet. It’s certainly the cutest, at the very least.

Recipe: Vegan Sushi Rice BowlsRecipes
One of my favorite takeout lunches from Whole Foods is their sushi rice bowl, which usually contains a mixture of fish and vegetables over a bed of sushi rice. Since I don’t have easy access to sashimi-quality fish, vegetable-based rice bowls are much easier (not to mention more budget-friendly) to throw together at home! This rice bowl is chock-full of delicious vegetables and hearty enough to make a satisfying lunch or dinner.
