1.Sio Kinpira with lotus root and ginko nut

Kinpira is a Japanese cooking style that can be summarised as a technique of "sauté and simmer". It is commonly used to cook root vegetables such as carrot, burdock and lotus root, seaweeds such as arame and hijiki and other foods including tofu and wheat gluten (namafu),and even meat (chicken, pork, beef).
The dish features the use of soy sauce and mirin, as well as often slivered chili peppers.
At this recepi, we use salt instead of soy sauce,for enjoying of original sweetness with lotus root.
You will also enjoy the contrast of color with Aonori’s green color and ginko nut’s yellow color.
This Kinpira goes well well-chilled beer!
