Tonjiru, also known as butajiru, is a traditional Japanese soup that combines savory flavors with hearty ingredients. Let me introduce you to this soul-warming dish:

Tonjiru literally translates to “pork (ton) soup (jiru).” It’s a miso soup featuring pork and root vegetables.
Some people use the term Butajiru interchangeably, which is another way to read the same kanji character.
While it’s often associated with cold weather, I personally enjoy it year-round because of its deliciousness and nutritional value.
Pork: The most common pork used for this soup is pork belly slices (similar to uncured bacon).
Vegetables: Tonjiru is loaded with hearty root vegetables such as gobo (burdock root), taro, daikon, and carrot. These veggies add depth and flavor to the soup.
Boil the pork, root vegetables, and other ingredients in a miso-based broth.
The result is a comforting, protein-rich soup that warms both body and soul.
Cultural Context:
You might have seen Tonjiru featured in the popular Japanese TV drama called “Shinya Shokudo” or “Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories” on Netflix.
In the show, the main character Master prepares a big pot of hearty soup, and the steam wafts through the kitchen, creating a cozy atmosphere.
So, if you’re looking for a nourishing and satisfying soup, give Tonjiru a try—it’s perfect for those chilly days!

Overnight oats 

Bildresultat för foto på Overnight oats

Overnight oats are a delightful and convenient way to prepare oatmeal without any cooking involved. Instead of the traditional method of boiling oats, overnight oats are mixed with milk (or a dairy-free alternative) and left to soak overnight in the refrigerator. During this time, the oats absorb the liquid, resulting in a creamy and satisfying breakfast option.

Here’s how you can make your own delicious overnight oats:

  1. Ingredients:
    • Rolled Oats: Use old-fashioned rolled oats for the best texture.
    • Milk: Choose cow’s milk or any plant-based milk you prefer.
    • Sweetener: Add a splash of maple syrup, honey, or brown sugar for sweetness.
    • Flavorings: Enhance the flavor with warming spices like cinnamon or nutmeg.
    • Toppings: Get creative with your favorite toppings—think fruits, nuts, seeds, or even a dollop of yogurt.
  2. Instructions:
    • Mix 1 cup of rolled oats with ¾ cup of milk (or adjust the ratio as needed).
    • Add sweetener and flavorings to taste.
    • Stir well and refrigerate overnight.
    • In the morning, your oats will be ready to enjoy—cool, creamy, and packed with goodness!

Key Differences Between Overnight Oats and Traditional Oatmeal:

  • Oats: Overnight oats use old-fashioned rolled oats, which soften overnight while maintaining some texture. Instant oats turn mushy if soaked too long, and steel-cut oats remain too toothsome.
  • Timing: Unlike stovetop oatmeal, overnight oats require an actual overnight soak since they aren’t cooked.

Remember, overnight oats are versatile—you can customize them to your liking and create a variety of flavors. So go ahead, experiment, and wake up to a delightful breakfast!
