Dinner tonight

Not sure which I am going to make for dinner tonight. Either a dashi broth with some udon, shimeji, baby bok choy, and some fish pieces like turbot and a little rice or maybe some marinated gindara(?) thats done in mirin, miso and sake with a side of veggies.

We are trying to eat more health conscious and both options seem to be good.

Tonnato sauce - a rich tuna sauce for pasta

This is a variation on a famous Italian sauce for a dish called vitello tonnato, but it omits the vitello (veal) and just uses the sauce to toss with pasta. It is a very frugal dish since you can make dinner for two with 1 can of tuna, pasta, and a bit of olive oil and seasonings. (You may want to add a green salad or something for a complete meal.) continue reading...

  • 1 can of tuna, well drained
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2-3 filets of canned anchovies (you can omit this if you like, but add more salt in that case)
  • About 1/4 cup or more of good quality olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1-2 Tbs.
