I was in Japan last week with my family and we were there for 7 days exploring. The trip was amazing, but the food was definitely a challenge. We didn't eat a lot of salad in Japan. Not that we didn't want to, there just was not really any salad to be found. Here in Los Angeles we have giant gorgeous salads on every corner. There was a lot of pastries, soup, noodles, and of course fish and rice, but literally I think I only saw one salad and it was at Disneyland Tokyo. It was terrible looking by the way and it came in a plastic cup with a crouton. Gag. So needless to say that when we got back home last week I was on this super healthy kick to eat only vegetables. It lasted like three entire days and then I needed chocolate again obviously.
Anyhoe, Hahahahaha that typo was too good not to leave. Anyhow, I went to the book store (I know weird) to get a couple books (I got #GirlBoss which is amazing FYI and Heidi Swanson's book 'Near and Far'. The book is seriously stunning. Each page is perfectly written with a beautiful rustic, half eaten dish of whatever she made. I just wanted to sit down and eat the entire damn book in the store. Hardcover and all. Heidi (I say her name like I know her) gathered recipes from her travels around the world and wrote them all in this cookbook. I added chicken to my recipe because I was hugaryyyyyy, but if you want to keep it meat free you can add tofu like she suggests. Alrighty, I have said enough. I added a couple slight changes based on local ingredients etc. Xx
