Hello. I’m practicing how to cook spring vegetable. I have bambooshoot today!
You can get it at the grocery store only during spring and it’s normally expensive. And this is my first time to cook it by myself. I used to eat it at home cooked by mom. The first thing I did was of course searching how to cook it on google. I just knew I need to boil it first before you cook but I had no idea how to peel it and boil. Actually you don’t have to peel it, just cut the little top part of bambooshoot and put it in water and boil. Don’t forget to boil with rice bran and chili to remove bamboo smell.
I boiled it almost one hour and waited another 30mins to cool it down in the boiled water. Then I peeled it. You can peel it very easily but maybe get surprised when you see the bambooshoot becomes so small and a very little left to eat. Like this.
Anyway the preparation has done and I cooked it! I cooked it with beef like Sukiyaki with potato and spring onion.
Okay. I’m satisfied with what I’ve done. Here’s today’s dinner.
My husband will be home soon. Itadakimasu 🙂
