みなさん、こんにちは!このコーナーでは、佐世保のご家庭内の「ふつうのごはん」を紹介していきます。食の理解は文化の理解につながります。日米双方の「Everyday food」を紹介していければと思います。

Goya chanpuru  (bitter melon stir fry)

Above, goya chanpuru is an Okinawan stir fry dish. Since goya, or “super food of Okinawa”, is rich in a number of vitamins and minerals, it is a great recipe for hot summer days. Other than goya, it usually consists of egg, onion, tofu, and pork. It can be seasoned with soy sauce, miso, or broth. 

Cold noodles (udon) with minced meat and eggplant topping, tomato & cheese caprese, cucumber stickes.
Cold noodles (somen) with tuna and vegetable topping, gratin, cabbage slices.

We eat a lot of cold noodles during summer. There are various types of noodles depending on the ingredients and thickness of the noodles. The most popular kind of noodles for this season is called “somen”, which are very thin, less than 1.3 mm in diameter to be exact. They are commonly enjoyed with tsuyu (soy sauce and broth-based soup) dipping sauce.
