5 recipes with Dried onion, Garlic, and Mirin

Tuna and egg bento

The bare tuna-paste bento was a great success, but with the arrival of my new bento container, I was left with some extra unused space. I decided to fill the space with easy to make and very tasty iri tamago, which is basically a Japanese kind of scrambled eggs! You can definitely use iri tamago in onigiri, or as a small side dish.

Tuna paste bento

Tuna paste is ridiculously easy to prepare and makes a great no cooking bento, cutting the preparation time to less than 20 minutes, including rice cooking time! Now, that's what I would call cooking on the go! You can also use the tuna paste for a great tasting onigiri or sushi.

Marinated beef and pasta bento

Bento is not only rice, but also other ingredients, like... pasta. This recipe came to life when I had some uncooked beef left-overs and just wondered what to do with them. Cooking them as a part of bento was a great idea!

Pineapple teriyaki curry with chicken

Give yourself an oriental, savory feast with this simple, yet very spectacular dish. Simple, tasty, and doesn't require lots of ingredients, which is a perfect idea for a nice, cozy evening.

Tomato cream soup

Tomatoes are very healthy thanks to the lycopene, but they also taste amazing when you cook them in a cream soup with a pinch of red pepper and garlic. And herbs, croutons, bread rolls or literally anything you would ever want to put in a cream soup, it's so versatile. And because it's summer time now, you can even let it chill and serve it cold. How cool is that?
