Your Home for Homemade Japanese Food

How to cook "with visual instructions" "using familiar ingredients from your local grocery stores" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Simple Japanese Egg Salad (Vegetarian/Gluten-free*)


Today I introduce you to “Simple Japanese Egg Salad”. It is a quick and easy recipe but very scrumptious!! (*When you use gluten-free mayonnaise, this becomes a gluten free dish. Japanese mayonnaises mostly contain small amount of gluten as an ingredient “Brewed Vinegar”)


In Japan, we usually use this for sandwiches. But if you want to add one more dish in your meal, this is best because it is a fuss-free recipe.


I use fresh eggs and boil them myself. If you have boiled eggs in your refrigerator, you might want to use them. It saves more time.

The recipe is very easy.


Boil eggs for 12 minutes. Peel in cold water. Crumble the peeled eggs and season with mayonnaise, salt and pepper.

Ingredients (servings 2)

3 Eggs

4 Tbsp. Mayonnaise

Pinch of Salt and Pepper

Minced Parsley (to taste)

Boiled Water for boiling eggs

  6. I’ve always been a fan of Japanese cuisine. I’m more than glad to stumble into your blog. There are tons of cooking blogs out there, but I can’t find one exclusively dedicated to Japanese cuisine. More power 🙂

  7. Nice and very simple dish. Excited to try. I came around looking for japanese food with slight indian masala touch. Let me know if you made any and if you are planning, refer vahchef recipes for fusion to the traditional dishes.
