  1. Thanks Lisa, Dashi is a kind of soup or cooking stock used extensively in Japanese cooking. It forms the base of soups like Miso soup and broth for noodle dishes.

  2. I love teriyaki sauce! It's also great with roast vegetables, and you can use it as a salad sauce (add lemon juice or cider vinegar).

    PS: I wonder if there's ever been a teriyaki KitKat? ;)

  3. Yummy!

    I always love teriyaki. :)

  4. Thanks Rurousha, I've never tried Teriyaki sauce on roast veggies or as a salad dressing. Thanks for the ideas, I'll have to give them a try.

    P.S. I really like your blog and the autumn pictures you are posting :)

    Thanks Lina, it is one of my favourites and so easy to make at home :)

  5. Thank you for your Teriyaki-recipe in English.
    I am Japanese. One of my penpal friend has interest about Japanese food.
    I am wondering what is good to tell her Japanese traditional liquid recipe.
    I try to tell her this one. Thank you.

  6. Thanks Totoro, Teriyaki is one of my favourite Japanese sauces and is very easy to make. I also like Miso sauce, which you can make from miso paste :)

  7. Some of the recipes call for liquid dashi (in ml) and others call for dashi in grams. would the latter mean instant dashi powder?

  8. Thanks Anon, We usually measure dashi or stock as liquid in ml but something like a solid or dashi powder would be measured in grams. I hope this helps :)
