Kinpira Gobo/きんぴらごぼう

I made kinpira gobo as part of supper tonight.

1 gobo
1/2 large carrot

45 ml soy sauce
15 ml sugar
(or 45 ml mirin)
1 chili pepper
Sesame oil for stir-frying
Sesame seeds


ごぼう 1本
にんじん 大 1/2本
しょう油 45 ml
砂糖 15 ml
(またはみりん 45 ml)
唐辛子 1本

(I didn't add a chili pepper and I left out sesame seeds.)

Tonight's supper was temaki zushi (hand-rolled sushi).  I made su-meshi (vinegared rice), using leftover frozen rice.
Ingredients were cheap albacore tuna, canned tuna, atsuyaki tamago (thick rolled omelet), fake crab meat.

That has been almost the exact dinner at our house a few times in the past couple of years! My wife discovered a kinpira recipe from a JMSDF family website that called for celery instead of gobo, and I think we went through a few pounds of it before we got tired of it!

Ruminating Roy: Kinpira celery sounds interesting. I hope I can try it some day. The problem is that my children are not fond of celery...
