A vegetarian foodie in Japan...

Hi all!

I had Monday off so I spent the day cooking up a storm!

First look at all these beautiful fruits & veggies I bought:

Nothin' beats fresh ingredients!  And yes Japanese carrots are monsters.

Garlic Soup:

I find pureed soups to be not quite as filling as hearty soups but despite that this was still good.

Chickpea Apple Curry:

Gotta trust M. Stewart to make food to die for.  This is probably the best curry I've ever made.  The apples make it sweet.  You gotta try this one.

Spinach & Artichoke Wrap:

So yummy!

Roasted Vegetable Soup:

Fruit Dip:

Nutella Cookies:

On Sunday I had a snack at Bondi Cafe which is nice but very expensive.

Beautiful Chai:

Acai Puree:

Finally, I found some holiday tea at Kaldi:

The Gingerbread Spice is delicious but the Sugar Cookie just freaks me out with how much it tastes like cookies.

I'm off to warm up as it was a chilly one today!  Happy eating!


  1. Wow! All of that looks so yummy! Can't believe it's all veggie, too. Those nutella cookies look really good!

    I'm not a big tea drinker, but that sugar cookie tea has me wondering. I may have to see if I can find it at a store locally. :-D

    1. Thanks! No meat or meat broth or anything like that in my cooking!

      And yeah, I don't think I can recommend that tea. It's weird man.

  2. Apple chickpea curry sounds like the most glorious thing ever to happen to an apple.. I shall have to try that out!
