Hasamiyaki (Lotus Root Sandwiches)

September 26, 2020 / by Junko


It’s already the end of September.
We will be using a fall vegetable, lotus roots, to make a Japanese dish called “hasamiyaki” where we sandwich some meat in-between sliced lotus roots.
We will also show you how to cut the lotus roots into a cute flower shape.

10cm lotus root
150g minced pork
10cm green onion
1 piece ginger
1 tsp soy sauce
potato starch
1 tbsp oil
1 tablespoon
4 shishito (Japanese green pepper) (for decoration)
2 shiso leaves (for decoration)

2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp sake





There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :)
