Yay! Week 3! Well done everyone! So what has been you or your families favorite dish so far? My children loved the maki sushi and the noodle dishes, they called the tempeh dish “Tempeh nuggets” , my brother came for a visit and really liked the radish dish and of course the pancakes were a big hit!
Wakame cucumber Salad – by Aveline Kushi
1-11/2 Cups spring or filtered water
1 Cup sliced soaked wakame
2 Cups cucumbers, halved and sliced
Tamari soy sauce
Brown rice vinegar
Grated fresh ginger
Put the water in a pot and bring it to a boil. Add the wakame and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Drain the wakame and allow it to cool. If the wakame is hard, cook it for a total of 3-5 minutes. Put the cucumbers in a bowl, add the wakame, and mix. Prepare a sauce by mixing a small amount of tamari soy sauce, brown rice vinegar, and grated fresh ginger. Pour the sauce over the wakame and cucumbers and mix.
-I used about half the wakame. Wakame is not a favorite of my kids, they like it best if chopped very fine and in smaller amounts.
