also known as hiyayakko, this dish comes in so many different varieties that it will make your head spin. my favorite involves the use of fresh ginger, garlic, green onions, a drizzle of soy sauce, and tofu (the star of the show).
i love deviled eggs. but with a filling comprised of half egg yolks and half mayonaisse, they aren’t exactly a feel-good food. unless, of course, you use avocado as a substitute for the mayo.
garlic chives, soy sauce, sesame oil, snow pea shoots, mung bean sprouts, and a little bit of spice make a dish that is both fresh and pretty darn good for you.
ever what was inside when you crunched into that delicious, crispy, exterior? it’s not as nebulous as you might think. go get yourself some sweet chili sauce and loosen that belt.
pancakes, only japanese and about one million times more delicious. bust out the beer on this one.
fried garlic? cream sauce? red bell peppers? pork crisped to perfection? if any of that sounds good, get ready for a beast of an appetizer.
an appetizer-sized portion of tofu surrounded by a golden chicken stock, garlic sprouts, and black pepper. so fresh will smith would be jealous.
smoky. herby. fresh. your toast will thank you when it is all over.
delicious doesn’t mean complex. if you find the right flavors, just a few ingredients can make a great appetizer. salmon, avocado, and onion just happen to be three such ingredients.
toast, sashimi, homemade cream cheese, and cucumber. let’s be honest with ourselves, what’s not to like?
