A Celebration of Asian Food with a Retro Kikkoman Noodle Dish
I’m the first to admit I am not much of an Asian food cook, but I LOVE to eat it.
Occasionally I stumble across a recipe that works for me. I’m not sure if I should say ’embarrassingly’ or rather just ‘ironically’, but this recipe comes from a Kikkoman ad in a magazine…about 20 years ago. I think it must have been my first foray into ‘Asian’ cooking.
After carefully copying it into my recipe journal it became a staple part of our Sunday lunch menu and it was an immediate hit. Although I really can’t understand why it is called “Chinese..,” when the flavours are really so Japanese! It is so simple, yet truly delicious.
I bet if you asked anyone who came to our place for lunch in the 90s, they would remember this dish. I am so thrilled to have rediscovered it after searching through my messy and huge unfiled recipe file. It’s been a while. But guess what’s back on the menu now?
