Rika’s TOKYO CUISINE
Three Dishes with Spring Vegetables
In this episode, we'll be cooking with fukinoto butterbur shoots, a spring vegetable with just a hint of bitterness. For our first dish, we'll be making an easy-to-eat variation on a rural Japanese home-cooked dish, fukinoto with miso. Our main dish is crispy and delicious tempura with spring shoots, featuring fukinoto butterbur shoots, as well as taranome shoots and kogomi fiddlehead ferns. You won't want to miss the way we show you how to make crispy tempura batter using carbonated water! The tempura is served with salt and sour sudachi citrus. We'll also learn about how to combine new potatoes with avocado for a beautiful green potato salad.
