Japanese Hausu party

SushiOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASome friends threw a Japanese-themed birthday party. They made lots of lovely food including mock duck pancakes and Thai curry and they made their dining room into a little cinema and projected the film Hausu onto the wall! I made sushi with asparagus, spring onions, cucumber with pickled ginger and Tamari.

 

The green blobs around the edge of the plate are wasabi (Japanese horseradish).  The Vegan Black Metal Chef says, most of the reason for eating sushi is the wasabi. I think he has a point!

 

 

Green Tea Cupcakes

I also made some green tea cupcakes from the book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. You need matcha green tea powder for these cakes, pricey stuff (around £5 for 25g) but apparently it provides you with a powerful arsenal of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids in a way no other green tea can. It may even help reduce or moderate mental stress responses! I might make some more…
