Organic kale, lettuce, beetroot, spinach and every ang-moh veggies can be found in most supermarkets nowadays. But organic Japanese produce is really quite a painful find. Supernature Organics, one of our favourite place to stock up on all things vegan invited us for their Japanese produce launch late last year.
We tried a wide variety of organic oranges, apples to rainbow kiwi fruit! It tasted quite sour but had a really good texture and the other fruits were sweet despite no pesticides or artificial coatings. Although they looked more bruised than the shiny fakes ones we see in most supermarkets, the ones here were still thoughtfully chosen and had really good lustre and shape.
This was how a rainbow red kiwifruit looked like when sliced open.
I was also given a few organic Japanese vegetables such as organic burdock (our favourite) and salad leaves (their version of a rocket leaves called Mizuna) to try.
The next day, I made a refreshing wasabi sesame vinegar dressing with all the Organic Japanese produce and boy was it YUMMY! The vegetables portions may look small but I was able to use them for 3 meals and they lasted really fresh and good in the refrigerator for a week.
And finally Supernature brought back vegan yoghurt! OMG:))))) Please bring the plain flavour one in soon too!
I made a quick and easy fruit yoghurt appetizer with organic rainbow kiwi and served it with sesame stir fry burdock roots. Next I added some organic somen with tom yam broth to kick off dinner!
If you are planning on creating a Japanese feast anytime soon, please go check out the latest fresh produce range Supernature brings in every week. We want to thank Alicia from Supernature Organics for the invitation and for the sponsored vegetables.
