cucumber sunomono

cucumber sunomono

Recipe from Cucumber Sonomono by ChristyJ with modifications as suggested by Kay.

2 large cucumbers
2 carrots

1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/4 tsp toasted sesame oil
4 teaspoons white sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root

toasted sesames and chili, to taste

Peel two cucumbers and score with a fork: this creates a nice patterned edge. Slice in half lengthwise and then slice into small half-moon pieces. Peel carrots (discard peel) and then create thin slivers with your vegetable slicer. Combine ingredients for sauce in a large bowl. Stir, then add the vegetables and toss to coat. Let marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Serve topped with sesame seed and red chili.

More bentos at

I recently got sent a parcel from the Japan Centre full of their latest Daiso bento range for a feature I’m writing for NEO magazine. I thought I’d upload one of the pictures so you can see what’s on offer there. All items are £1.49 and available online at You might be able to get them cheaper elsewhere, but if you’re in the UK it might be cheaper to pop in and pick them up if you’re in London anyway!

These aren’t really proper eating bentos, so the ratio of rice to food isn’t what it would be if you would eat them for lunch. The top left bento contains salt-sesame peppers, Swedish meatballs, cherry tomatoes and a heart shaped egg. The top right bento contains Indian chicken skewers, cherry tomatoes, a star shaped egg and heart shaped rice. The bottom left bento contains miso saute carrots, a tea marbled egg, more salt-sesame peppers, sesame vinegar aubergine and mayonnaise-soy prawns. The bottom left bento contains spicy soy cucumber, a star shaped egg, gyozas and bear shaped rice covered with furikake.

I definitely recommend buying ‘Easy Japanese Pickling’ by Seiko Ogawa for a huge range of ideas for vegetable side dishes for your bento. I’ve not been disappointed by a recipe yet. The pepper, aubergine, carrot, cucumber and prawn dishes were all made from the book, and they look and taste great!

pork shoulder, ground oregano, freshly ground pepper, salt, red wine, olive oil

My friend Ocha-neko shared to me this recipe. She responded to my request willingly, and I received the information about the garnish not to mention a detailed recipe of Souvlaki from her by an email.
I tried Souvlaki for the first time, and it was very delicious! The garnish was the best, too!! I will make Souvlaki many times from now on! ^^
Thank you so much ^^
