Nothing To Write Home About

A recent dinner with rice, carrot & daikon salad, salt & pepper fried tofu, and.... what is that pile of shiny stuff?

Yes, it's konnyaku! We first had it at the beginning of the year, and I can't say that I was thrilled to see it show up in our veggie box for the week, but we also got a yamaimo in our box, and as I forecasted in this post, I really did sneak that into someone else's box. And well, slipping two things out of our box was just out of the question, so I figured I could deal with the konnyaku. And in smaller pieces with a liberal amount of wasabi and soy sauce it was doable. Nothing fantastic, but doable.

not sure if you've made okonomiyaki before, but you could chop it into smaller cubes and put it in. Or, add it to kinpira. might make it easier to eat than just by itself.

Oh those are both great suggestions! I love the kinpira rice burgers at MOS Burger and don't even notice the konnyaku in that. I will be testing out both ideas - thanks Kat!
