Karl’s Hijiki No Nimono (Hijiki and Carrot Salad)

I had decided to make a Japanese feast this Sunday. Miriam had requested that it be a vegetable forward and a low sugar meal.  Japanese dishes seem to have a lot of added sugar, but I could work with that. I found a site with a list of nine Japanese vegetables dishes to go with my main dish of chicken yakitori.

Karl’s Kitsune Udon

Jan’s favorite dish, when we go to a Japanese restaurant is kitsune udon. Udon is a thick wheat noodle that is a standard for a large variety of Japanese soups—both hot and cold. While kitsune refers to a fox, the distinguishing ingredient in this dish fried tofu—apparently the favorite food of the magical, Japanese, shape-shifting foxes.
