Omuraisu Recipe – Japanese Omelet

Also known as omurice or omu-rice, omuraisu is a typical Japanese dish featuring fried rice and omelet, and often some ketchup too. Omuraisu is a contraction of the Japanese words for omelet and egg. This omuraisu recipe is not hard to make and you will love the flavor.

This dish can be found in Western style restaurants in Japan as well as in Japanese homes, and it was also introduced to Korea under Japanese rule. You can find it in Taiwan too which was also under Japanese rule for some time. This dish has been around since the early 1900s.

Different Kinds of Omurice

Chicken rice, chicken and vegetable rice or beef rice can be wrapped in a thin fried egg sheet to make an omuraisu recipe. Sometimes ketchup or white sauce is added to the rice. Continue reading

Ham and Lentil Soup

Add ham to your lentil soup and not only do you have a tasty, nutritious soup but you can also enjoy the meatiness that ham adds in there. Ham and lentil soup is great for lunch or as a comforting, warming snack.

Whether you are using a ham hock or some leftover cooked ham, you can add that flavor to the lentil soup and be guaranteed that it will come out beautifully.

Ham and lentil soup is usually thick and chunky, and the lentils will start to disintegrate when they are cooked, thickening up the soup without you needing to add starch or another thickener.

Why You Should Make this Ham and Lentil Soup

This is a great recipe for home cooks because it is so easy. Also, lentil and ham soup is an economical option. Buy some dried lentils and ham and you can prepare this wonderful feast in next to no time. Continue reading

Low Carb Tortilla Pizza

This low carb tortilla pizza is incredibly good and it takes about 10 minutes to make and the same again to cook. Whether or not you have made pizza before, you will find this low carb tortilla pizza incredibly simple, and the sky is the limit as far as toppings are concerned.

Use a low-carb tortilla to make your pizza. I recommend the Mama Lupe ones because they’re so good and only 3 carbs (and 60 calories) each. And they are the closest in flavor to regular tortillas. I also tried the La Tortilla brand for my low carb tortilla pizza because those are only 50 calories each but… nope not as good as the Mama Lupe ones.

This low carb tortilla pizza recipe makes a fabulous dinner, and it is also quick enough to make for lunch. Whatever meal you are making this pizza for, you are sure to find it filling and delicious.

Keep some low-carb tortillas in the refrigerator (they keep for weeks in there) and rustle one of these up whenever you’re in the mood for some comfort food! Continue reading
