So, pull up your calendar and off we go…
Mason Jar Meals
Want to know some secrets to easy, healthy and enjoyable pre-prepped lunches and dinners? We’ve got two: mason jars and sauces. You can customize a mason jar for each member of your family with easy additions or changes. A great option that’s delicious, light and satisfying is Mason Jar Noodle Salad. To customize you can add herbs like cilantro or switch out chicken for marinated tofu. The only non-negotiable is adding Yamasa Shoyu to the dressing. The deliciously balanced umami flavor brings out the flavors of all the other ingredients. Or you can try Mason Jar Noodle Soup for some comfort food on May’s cooler days. This easy-to-make soup starts with delicious Yamasa Ramen Broth.
What is sushi bake? Well, some might describe it as sushi without all that rolling, or poke without the bowl or even as a decidedly modern take on the traditional casserole. Sushi Bake is pre-marinated fish like crabmeat, salmon, shrimp or tuna that’s combined with shoyu, Kewpie mayo, sriracha and spices and served on a bed of rice. Have your Yamasa Shoyu on hand for extra umami goodness. You can eat it as is or, for a little finger food action, enjoy it with sheets of seaweed. It makes a dinner that’s easy enough for a weeknight meal and special enough for game night or a party.
This trendy take on corn is perfect for your Memorial Day cookout. Use your knife and seasoning skills for something really memorable! Simply cut each cob into quarters, then season with this mouthwatering combination of Yamasa Ramen Broth, gochujang and sriracha. Once seasoned, you can quickly cook them in your air-fryer, in the oven or on the grill.
Egg Roll in a Bowl
The beloved egg roll – everyone’s favorite takeout appetizer– is always delicious, but it can be awfully heavy, with too much of the fried roll and not enough of the savory filling. The Egg Roll in a Bowl reverses that balance with tons of veggies, ground beef, turkey, or crumbled tofu quickly sauteed in a sauce rich with Yamasa shoyu. This meal packs as many vegetables as a salad into a satisfying warm dinner that will really hit the spot after coming home from the chilly sidelines of any spring sport. Fresh is always fantastic, but a handy bag of coleslaw mix is a clever time saver on rushed nights.
