Happy Monday Friends! ✨ 

If you follow me on any of my social media then you’ll already know by now that I love creating new (and maybe slightly unconventional) meals by mixing English & Japanese ingredients & cooking techniques!

You guys seem to really like them so today I’m sharing with you a super delicious & easy meal that I’ve been enjoying loads over this winter season! ❄️

Serves: 2

You will need:

  • Half a large onion
  • 1 Aubergine
  • 1 Pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • Soy sauce
  • Rice wine vinegar / sake wine

  • Noodles of choice (I recommend udon or rice noodles)
  • Salt & pepper
  • paprika
  • Kelp powder
  • Tofu (chopped into squares)
  • Sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Dice your onion & fry in a large pan in extra virgin olive oil until cooked through
  2. Cut your other vegetables & heat them with the onion
  3. Combine the tin of chopped tomatoes
  4. Add a generous splash of soy sauce along with the rice wine vinegar / sake wine & garlic.
  5. Mix everything together to heat through.
  6. Now pop your noodles into the pan and mix together.
  7. Season to your taste with salt, pepper, paprika & kelp powder.
  8. Finally, scoop it into a bowl, delicately place the tofu to the side of the bowl & sprinkle sesame seeds on top!

  1. This look so simple and super yummy! I will definitely try this – just need to source some kelp powder! 🤔 Or could you recommend an alternative that’s easy to source in the uk? xxx
