i am so very happy to post my second guest recipe, a delicious renkon burger recipe from kurashi arekore's momosan. renkon is lotus root, and you can buy it frozen in asian supermarkets, but momo said that fresh renkon is grown by local producers in nsw. i think we could also find it fresh down south here, if we investigated a little at farmers markets or asian grocers...please do see if you can find fresh (momo recommends only fresh!) and give the burgers a try - so delicious. the recipe is in downloadable PDF under the ii-ne-kore vegetarian japanese recipes on the left hand side there.
a very big thank you to momo. i think kurashi arekore blog is one of the most beautiful, lovely examples of 'murmurings about my life'.
ps - momo and friends visit wood spoon kitchen on smith street - a relatively new japanese place that i really want to get to soon. i like the sound of those corn butter parsley onigiri! and whilst we are on nice melbourne japanese places, kappaya cafe and lovely japanese wares store zakkaya as reviewed at the wonderful open blog are also absolute winners.
