Today, I introduce you to Korokke (croquette).

The Japanese recipe is somewhat like the French croquette. We named it Korokke because it is the closest pronunciation using Japanese sounds to croquette. Because of this word borrowing many Japanese thought Korokke was a western food, but nowadays we realize it has become a Japanese food because the Japanese Korokke, while a bit similar to the French croquette, is actually not same.

Korokke is a very popular food for lunch, dinner or a snack. The ingredients are potato, ground meat and onion. Seasoning is only salt and pepper. We can also make vegetable Korokke without meat. My mother sometimes secretly put vegetables which I didn’t like, such as green pepper, celery and so on in the Korokke because it was always delicious! As just described, you can put anything you want for your family’s health or just for taste in a Korokke.

Snow Pea and Egg (Vegetarian/Gluten-Free)

Today’s dish is called “Snow peas and Egg,” which is actually my mother’s original recipe. It uses sweet egg and snow peas that are a little bit salty. This dish is very easy to cook and popular with children because of the sweet and soft scrambled egg.

Snow peas have a lot of vitamins and carotene so it is good food for beauty. Egg is, needless to say, high quality protein and high in vitamins and minerals. So my mother knew it is good for children because it is easy, nutritious and delicious!!

{Ingredients (For 2 people)}

About 20 pieces of snow pea (according to your taste)

3 Eggs

2 tablespoons Sugar

¼ teaspoons salt

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
