Japanese Somen Bento★ ひんやり!カラフルそうめん弁当 (Kawaii Bento #16)

 Kawaii Bento #16: Japanese Somen (Cold Noodle) Bento! リンク

 

bento16by9thumb.jpg

Summer is just around the corner, and as much as it is my favorite season of the year, I don't think many people like dealing with super humid weather. Hot and humid weather can make you feel exhausted and lose your appetite. Therefore, I decided to share a popular Japanese summer food called "somen", which are white noodles made of wheat flour that's served cold. When I was little I visited my grandparents in Japan every summer, and my grandmother always made somen for my brother and I. So in this episode, I will be sharing my grandmoter's nostalgic recipe and make it into a colorful and kawaii Somen Bento! :)

6月も終わりに近づき、そろそろ夏本番ですね。
ということで、今回は夏にピッタリな「ひんやり!そうめん弁当」を作りますshineshine
カラフルなそうめんを可愛くトッピングしたお弁当です!!

こちらから動画をご覧下さいおんぷ。



りぼん INGREDIENTS りぼん
*For one person. Please adjust amount according to servings*

- Somen and Toppings -
Somen (you can find white and/or colored ones at Japanese supermarkets!)
Seaweed paper (cut into thin strips)
Tomato
Cold Shabu Shabu Pork
Shrimp
Eggs (cooked and thinly cut)
Sliced Cucumbers
Ginger
Ham
Scallions

- Tsuyu / Dipping Sauce -
Water (1 cup)
Bonito Powder (1 tablespoon)
Sugar (4 tablespoons)
Rice Wine a.k.a mirin (1/2 cup)
Soy Sauce (1/2 cup)

★Tip for the Tsuyu★
As I mention in the episode, it is best to make the tsuyu (dipping sauce) the night before so that you can store it in the fridge to make it cold. The somen will become more appetizing and delicious! When eaten at home, somen is usually soaked in a bowl of water and ice so you can make the tsuyu right before you eat it (since the somen itself would be very cold). However, that will gradually make the tsuyu taste watery so I personally recommend making it ahead of time for this bento. :) I also suggest adding some grated ginger and chopped scallions in the tsuyu right before you eat it to make it more enjoyable! I hope you will all have fun making this delightful summer recipe.

New York Dance Parade! ダンスパレード in ニューヨークリンク

The annual Dance Parade took place in New York City last weekend! Being a dancer myself, I was super excited to attend and interview the dancers and members of the audience. It was actually my first time being there, and I was awed by the number of dancers and their incredible, energetic performances! It is such a cheerful event where you can feel the excitement and joy of dancing, and you can also experience cultures from all around the globe! I also got to learn from new Salsa moves at the festival after the parade. :D
