Buddha Bowl On A Plate

夫は再び出張に出てしまいました、寂しい〜。結婚してからシンガポールに来た頃まで(20年近く)月の半分くらいは出張でいなかったので随分減りましたが、いるのになれるとそれはそれでいないとますます寂しい。このところお友達が帰国されてしまったりで随分減ってしまったので、お出かけも減ったせいもあるのか。。。まぁ、どういう状況でも、いないと寂しいだけのことかも。

My husband has gone away on business again.  He used to be away probably at least half of a month before we married until around the time when we came to Singapore (for about 20 years) so he is here much more than he used to, but I sort of got used to having him around in the evenings.  Many friends left in the last few years so I don’t go out as often either so I guess that’s another reason I seem to miss him more.  Or maybe just because I like having him around anyway,whatever the situation I miss him when he is away.

ということで、今日の夕食はひとりごはん。昨日の残りのお豆腐やちょっと前の残りのトウモロコシやブロッコリーなど冷蔵庫にあるもので、ブッダボール。(ボールでなくてプレートですが。)夫と結婚してから(特に日本を発ってからは美味しいお漬物などご飯と食べて美味しいものが簡単には手に入らないので)ご飯を食べる量がすっかり減りましたが、実はご飯さえあれば幸せな人なのです。なので、ブッダボールにはまってます(笑)。ブッダボールにも色々あってご飯は必須ではないですが、このソースにはキヌアではなくやっぱりご飯、という気がします。ソースが日持ちするのも良いです。今日はシャンツァイも加えてみたら、さらに美味しくなりました。ソースが中華風というかアジア風の味なので、シャンツァイが合うと思います。(参考レシピ→⭐️

So, I’m having the evening meal alone and made Buddha Bowl again (though not a bowl but a plate today).  There were things left in the fridge like a half of a tofu, some sweet corns, broccoli…  Since I married I don’t have rice as much, specially since I left Japan because it’s not easy to get good pickles and things that go with rice but I’ve always been one of those people who are happy as long as I have rice, so Buddha bowl suits me.  It’s not that you need rice for Buddha bowl but I feel for this particular recipe you do need rice, somehow quinoa doesn’t seem to work.  The sauce keeps a long time, which is great. Today, I added some coriander leaves, which made it even better.  The sauce tastes sort of Chinese or at least Asian so coriander leaves go very well.

The recipe I referred to (though didn’t follow exactly) is here.

ボールだと色々混ざってしまって全体が1つの味になってしまいますが、お皿だと別々に食べることが出来て、色々な食感や味が楽しめるので、個人的にはお皿に盛る方が好みです。

When you put this in a bowl, I find you end up mixing lots of ingredients together and have one taste, but when you use a plate you can eat each section separately and can enjoy different taste and texture all the time, so I prefer this way.
