  • On the enchilada rice at the end of making the dish, there was an egg on the top… I am a vegetarian and eggs are not vegetarian����������

  • Yoooo whoever married this lady should be the happiest guy in world! Luv when a women knows how to cook and not afraid to try new recipes!

  • I’m planning to become vegan cause I haven’t been having no meat and dairy and during this quarantine time my skin has been clearing up looking for vegan recipes so I have more to cook with

  • Not a good presentation better a person speaks clearly about a good veg preparation ingredients clearly..
    Playing james Bond music in background & quick moving photos. Is poor presentation.

  • I’m vegan so I’m so happy to be able to make some vegan friendly dishes. My bf is from Japan so he tries to help out when he can too

  • So am I the only one who noticed how uncomfortable she looked with that guy when he was getting affectionate…are we just ignoring that?

  • All the Vegan snowflakes freaking out over the egg. lol. Hunting eggs is something MANY animals do for survival including our ancestors, so we are very well suited to eat them…. but if you wanna argue about ethics and morals…. thats a different story. i guess gotta tell the fox not to hunt for eggs either…. cuz its “WRONG”. lol

  • Thank you for such a delicious and healthy curry recipe. Is it alright to cook the homemade curry roux in less time? I am not so used to having such a dark-colored curry sauce. If the flavor changes, I will give it a try.

  • Mushrooms are NOT vegies, they are semi animals you immoral bastards! Also leaves feel! HAvE you not seen how they move like live creatures when the wind blows!? But does the wind move them or their structure makes them move? It’s neither, its your mind that moves! Very tasty recipes by the way, thank you

  • Why dont all the people doing video cooking give recipe in writing?
    How are we supposed to print it out so we can use it in the kitchen?
    This is a real shame

  • I’ve been loving all these series of videos including this vegetarian video! It is such a good chance to catch up the videos that I haven’t watched before, and learn so many great recipes in one themed video. I’m looking forward to having the next one, thank you!

  • for me i have my 2 winners is mr. pastaissimo di bolognese & tomato and rice so deilicious i always add mushroom aon top to steam together with the tomato in the rice and its so amazing to eat as is on its own sprinkle wigh chopped green onions

  • Today I came to know that everyone has different definition of Vegetarian

    But correct one for an Indian Vegetarian is who dont eat animals including eggs

  • Another awesome video Mary! I have to admit I am yet to try sushi because I’m slightly scared and I don’t really like seaweed, but those sushi roles looked very tempting!:)

  • Some people here need to check their facts regarding eggs. As always, Youtube replies littered with comments by self righteous, ignorant twats.
    Thank you for these great recipes (from someone who appreciates them).

  • love both ur channels Mary! Asian food is my fave…I make avocado ginger maki, sweet potatoe maki and loooove sushi bowls with Kimchi too, love. all ur recipes Mary, thank you for sharing your time and passion xo

  • Don’t mind me i’m just making a list with foods
    1) zucchini ravioli (maybe)
    2) cauliflower pizza (maybe but yes without the cauliflower)
    3) baked ratatouille (hell na)
    4) broccoli cheddar quiche (hell ya but without the broccoli)
    5) cauliflower tacos (hell blah but maybe without the cauliflower)
    6) cauliflower grilled cheese (this is insulting but yes to the grilled cheese that respects itself)
    7) swedish meatballs (yesssss)
    8) vegeterian enchiladas but like with an egg on top and more avocado (✔️)
    9) avocado salad dressing to put on everything bc avocado makes everything better and I don’t want to limit myself (✔️✔️✔️✔️)
    10) pasta prewmavera (why would you do that to yourself?)
    11) potatoes (DON’T ASK)

  • all those instagram shot were fab.  look at the influence are having.  my approach to food has improved from viewing your channel.

  • Oh, everything looks so delicious! Thanks for the compilation. �� The korokke looks so tasty! I need to do it someday. Would they do nicely in the oven as well?

  • Yay thank you so much for these amazing Japanese vegan recipes! I really appreciate it ❤️ They look absolutely delicious, can’t wait to try them out!

  • I cooked today the 1st recipe and it took me ages to cut onion, garlic and smashed other ingredients by a fork. Use a mixer if you have it. And as was mentioned before it is better to cook pasta at a separate pan, cause in other case the meatballs fall apart. I took half of the ingredients for the meatballs and it was more then enough for 2 persons. It is quite tasty, but the process is too long, although i appreciated simple components.

    Also made the rice enchilada and it is really tasty and easier to cook than 1st recipe, good without cheese as well. If you have more than one pot start with cooking rice, it will save your time. I took 1 cup of rice (half of a spoon of salt for it) and got about 3-4 portions.

  • I know this has absolutely NO relationship to this video, but does anyone else get annoyed when it says “vegetarian” but asks for fake meat or fake eggs? like you don’t need those for a true vegetarian meal!

  • Ye wrong re recipes hai. Vegan log salt nd sugar avoid karte hain. Aur isme salt bahot hai. Ye khake koi vegan continues nehi kar payega

  • I’m from an Indian family and I’m veg so it’s difficult to live in Japan without knowing this so it’s a valuable video for me
    Arigato gosaimas ��

  • Obviously these are not pure vegetarian dishes based on the ingredients like mushroom, cheese, eggs, grains, avocado, pastas, coconut milk because none of those are vegetables.

  • Thank you for all the amazing yummy ideas, time and effort you put into making your videos Mary, You’ve inspired me to go Japanese today and after living there for 7 years. I’m so excited to experiment on some delish vegan ideas.:-)x

  • I never understood why people eat salads for meals.. it’s not supposed to be the main course. It’s supposed to be a snack or something quick to eat whilst you’re waiting for your actual meal. It’s low in calories but can fill you up in a pinch. However it won’t last long.

  • Vegan, sure. Healthy, no. Vegan isn’t a diet, it’s a cult. You’re body has evolved to eat cooked foods that include animal protein. Anyone that tells you that you will be healthy with a pure vegan diet is a flat out liar at worst, an ignorant uneducated fuck at best. These are the same inbred, low IQ tools that tell you vaccines cause autism because a comedian and former playboy model decided they had an “opinion” about something.

  • Well eggs aren’t vegetarian maybe it’s because many believe being a vegetarian means eating no meat but it not just that. It is not eating animal protein and eggs are “menstrual waste/periods” of chickens so for sure eggs are animal protein from a place I think might disgust you.

  • Great recipe! Vegetable curry is so flavorful. I’ve been eating it from retort food pouches and have been wanting to make it myself. Putting kabocha and tomatoes in it is a brilliant idea. I’m so glad that you are not using premade curry roux.

    A challenge for the future I’d like to see a Japanese curry powder recipe from scratch. So, I won’t have to mix it with garam masala and can probably use it in other dishes. Since curry was an indirect import, I expect the recipe would be a little different from India.

  • Are they gonna call a potato cooked in water with some indian chillies curry now!?!? Seriously, if ur gonna make something from a different culture, then get the name right!

  • Since none of the comments know what they’re talking about, i will explain.

    Vegetarian: NO meat, fish, or seafood.

    Vegan: NO meat, fish, seafood, dairy, or things like gelatin (because it has bone marrow.

    Pescatarian: similar to a vegetarian diet, but with seafood, and fish as the main source of protein.

    I am vegetarian, so i do not eat meat, or fish, and i have a seafood allergy. And i do not eat most dairy products because of my lactose intolerance. But i do eat eggs, because most of them are unfertilized, therefore, no animal is killed for them. And i need the extra protein.
    Hope this made sense.

  • Yukon gold potatoes?
    British “New Potatoes” are far better taste, texture and quality.
    “Kosher” salt? why do YouTube videos always push Jewish Kosher salt?

  • The way this was filmed reminded me of watching Spirited Away and the way that Ghibli film their food scenes. i was just mesmerized by that.

  • I’m blasain and my parents are asking me why I’m more Asian i eve have the accent and I eat Asian food and I said it’s bc of YouTube

  • This is hands-down my favorite video!! Thank you so much for doing a vegan recipe!! I’ve never known what to do with freeze-dried tofu, so now I’ll have to try it! 本当にありがとうございます!とても美味しそうです,食べたいなー!:-D <3

  • I’m not big on seaweed…but I find when the rolls are made with the rice on the outside, I really enjoy it. One day I will brave making my own. I really love the simplicity of avocado & cucumber rolls.

  • This looks delicious Nami! Can you tell me which vegetable broth brand you used in the video? It looks very concentrated and tasty! Thank you for all your wonderful recipes!

  • Thank you for the video from my heart. Whenever I try to eat healthy my ED habits get to my head and you remembered me to give things time and to let things go (like eating a bit too much one day):) I do your workouts 6 days a week and you’re my biggest motivation towards a better me. Thank you❤

  • I’ve been looking up recipes I can cook for my boyfriend, since he’s a vegetarian. Ik people have their problems with tasty but I like that they give you the recipe and show you how they make it.

  • Hi Ochikeron! I was going through your old video again lol. And I was wondering if you have an alternative to the sugar from your Azuki Red Bean Paste from Scratch video. Is it possible to use sweetener instead of sugar? So that it could be diabetic free?

  • Im vegitarian but hate these ideas i am so sick ofthe food o eat im eatting mostly cereal brokili and ranch french frys or tatertots mac and cheese or cheese and crackers

  • i found your channel today while i was stuck in bed with the flu. you have some amazing recipes that i cannot wait to try and make! literally cracked out on your videos today!

  • I’m vegetarian because my father in law makes the best cheesecake and it was a late wedding gift. Don’t judge me I’m trying to do better.

  • Please do a tonkotsu ramen, and spicy miso ramen tutorial. I suck at cooking but I want to learn because my local ramen house is so good but it’s expensive so I want to learn to make it at home.

  • I am not a vegan (and many Japanese people here are not), so I understand it is difficult to find vegan Japanese food recipes. However buddhist cuisine called Shojin Ryori (influenced by Chinese Buddhism) monks and some believers eat vegetarian or vegan based on the Dharmic concept of ahimsa. Shojin Ryori is served at restaurants very casually nowadays but they are not made by vegan specialized cooks, so be careful ��

  • +Sharla in Japan FYI the website states that the service will end on 30 Apr 2016… Is there a replacement? I’m heading over in 2017 and will definitely want to experience this….

  • I’m a vegetarian, so I’m very happy with this list. Thank you! The recipes:

    0:00 Agedashi Tofu
    0:56 Ginger Dressing
    1:40 Vegetarian Bolognese Sauce
    3:11 Corn Cream Korokke
    5:04 Shiitake Stems Kinpira

    7:45 Vegan Okonomiyaki
    9:20 Tofu Hamburger Steak
    10:35 Tofu Chicken Nuggets
    11:38 Whole Tomato Rice

  • You are amazing!�� Everything looks so good, I already made the Hokkaido potato mochi from your previous video which was super tasty! I can’t wait to try these recipes!

  • +Sharla in Japan hey I made this dish except for the soup cuz I don’t have a soup pot but it was good except for I wasn’t able to get freeze dry tofu so I had to use regular tofu and I think it would have been better with the freeze dry tofu. but it was good and my daughter who is 1 seemed to enjoy it too

  • Yum looks delicious i am making this soon will make this with few subs drooling over my samsung galaxy j4 love your recipes making me hungry Thanks Ramya
