JAPANESE COOKING - QUICK AND EASY

The Japanese tend to create works of art appealing to the eye as well as the appetite. Depending on what is being prepared, Japanese cooking may be labor intensive or time consuming. However, there are dishes that can be made using instant packaged seasonings and bottled sauces that can also make your dishes taste just as good, if not better. We will be preparing a quick Miso Soup, a side salad, and a ramen noodle stir fry main dish.
