Miso Pork Onigiri for Zoro: Inspired by One Piece (gluten free)

Inspired by Roronoa Zoro, my favourite directionally challenged swordsman! I am making a miso and soy pork filled onigiri that I believe Sanji would have absolutely made for him. Ongiri are simple, versatile, and delicious! This pork filling is bursting with umami from the miso paste, soy sauce, mirin, and garlic. Fresh fluffy rice filled with the delicious pork filling and wrapped in nori is just tooo good! You absolutely have to make it for yourselves. I’m sure that if Sanji made these for Zoro, he wouldn’t leave over a single grain of rice, and neither will you!

Ponyo’s Ramen: Inspired by Ponyo (gluten free)

Inspired by Ponyo, I’m making the special ramen that Ponyo and Sosuke enjoy together! This is definitely one of my favourite Studio Ghibli films and I think everyone should see it. Shoyu ramen is very quick to make and always delicious, so with only a handful of ingredients and a few minutes, you have got to try it! Shoyu tare + ramen noodles + fresh green onions + a perfect egg + HAAAAMMM!!! = Ponyo’s perfect bowl of ramen! I know you’re going to love it, so you have to try it for yourself.

Rainbow Grilled Cheese: Inspired by Le Shiner (レインボーフード), Tokyo

This may be the prettiest sandwich I’ve ever seen! While in Japan, you can get some amazing street food and this Tokyo spot should be on your list! In Harajuku Tokyo, you can get this iconic rainbow grilled cheese from Le Shiner on Takeshita Street. I had to make it at home! If you have food allergies or just aren’t in Japan but want the experience and fun of a rainbow grilled cheese, this one’s for you. Thinly shredded mozzarella cheese + food colouring, carefully arranged on buttered bread and grilled until gooey. That’s it! A delicious treat to give you a taste of Japan at home!

Rengoku’s Bento: Inspired by Demon Slayer (gluten free)

Inspired by Demon Slayer, I’m making Rengoku’s iconic bento. This was a long time coming but with Mugen Train airing now, I thought it was the perfect time. This scene is so silly and is an amazing introduction to a fantastic character. This bento is truly comfort food in a box. Gyudon (fresh rice, topped with juicy beef and onions) makes for a bite that will be sure to make you shout “UMAI!”

This meal is an easy way to channel your favourite half hot half cold hero!
