  • 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
    6:10 Lucky Simmered Vegetables
    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

  • Yay! thanks so much for doing this!! I would love to sign up for it but it looks like the services won’t be available after april 30?

  • Keep going Mary! You have one of the best vegan recipe channels and I know someday you will be one of the most popular too. You do such an amazing job and inspire me so much:)

  • I feel compelled to comment to let you know how much I appreciate the vegan video. I’d love to see more stuff like this, hopefully there’s enough interest.:)

  • This looks absolutely delicious! i must try it. I’ll have to substitute some ingredients though those mushrooms aren’t available in my area this time of year. Thank you Nami!

  • I just made this recipe for my meal prep this week! It is delicious! Thank you so much. I love the idea of using a real apple to sweeten it too. This is such a great natural, homemade, curry!

  • Iam surprised Japanese foods not cooked properly cut the vegetables big size and mam once you see Indian foods foreigners more likely india food we are properly boiled vegetables

  • Looked great Nami. That’s terrific you made the curry roux yourself. I know lots of japanese and they always use the supermarket ones when making curry.

  • Hi Mary, I became a Patreon:-) I can’t give much because I’m a student supporting myself with 2 Jobs but I hope to give 3 $ a month. I love your channel and I hope you can fulfill your dream <3:-)

  • Came across your channel while looking for katsu recipes. This channel is so frigging underrated!
    Even as a non Japanese person, it’s so easy to follow all these delicious recipes! Your recipes are far more helpful and realistic than most shitty content farm channels. I hope you get beyond a million subscribers soon!

  • Hi Sharla. I really enjoy watching ur videos. And i have a dream to visit Japan. I hope it comes true. I want to ask if there are more Japanese food or sweets aur snacks which are pure vegetarian like even having no egg. pls i really wanna know.��

  • Hi! thank you for uploading this i’ll be in Fukuoka in a few months and i am also scared because Japanese food have a different (sometimes weird) ingredients than the food in our country. i’m glad Japan is a rice country so yeah i won’t starve XD but rice in Japan is 3x more expensive @[email protected]

  • I suggest adding some red lentils to the potato curry to get some protein. As a former vegetarian, I hate “vegetarian” dishes that are too carb heavy and don’t add in some vegetarian protein sources.

  • Doesn’t Worcestershire have fish sauce in it?. so technically it’s not vegetarian, at all.

    Edit: I love all the other dishes, it’s just as vegetarians I know we want make sure we don’t eat anything meat or seafood related ♥️

  • I also post what I eat everyday on my instagram stories hope that would give you some meals ideas and tips!
    https://www.instagram.com/emiwong_/

  • I’ve made your beef curry many times so this is nice to see:)

    Also the filming in this video is so beautiful, especially towards the end when you’re plating the food!

  • Toro is fish belly actually certain tuna belly and it is wildly expensive! I’ve had it once at Morimoto in New York. Now I no longer indulge but I find vegan Sushi very satisfying.:-)

  • I literally just sat down with a plate of Japanese Curry from a pot I just made. I only make it once a month (because I make chicken meatballs with it and its a lot of work) so this is quite the coincidence!

  • I love most of your videos, but… to be real that’s not even slightly close to an enchilada, that is the american version of “mexican food” none of those ingredients are correct, apart from the tomato and the cheese. Sorry not sorry:/

  • Great! Haha I was just writing down my menu for the month since school starts tomorrow for me, and this is a total life saver since I don’t eat meat and eggs, and I can’t think of anything to cook ��

  • 凄いなあ(笑)野菜だけでこんなに多くのお料理ができるんだネ。揚げ出し豆腐は揚げたてが最高なので自分で作らないといけない。なので、この作り方がとっても大切(笑)。途中でお嬢ちゃんのプレイ・マットにあった音楽が出てきたりして(笑)どれも覚えて自分で作れるようにならないといけませんネ(笑)

  • So I legitimately have always eaten around my plate (American) because when I was younger, I would always eat the meat first and then would be too full to eat any of the sides, so my mother started making me eat the sides first and then I could touch the meat. As a kind of halfway point, I started eating around my plate so that way I ate a little bit of everything and made my mom happy. I still eat like this because I don’t enjoy eating any one thing by itself, and then another thing completely by itself. Obviously, there is a difference between appetizers, entree’s and desserts, but the rule is true to anything that is in front of me.

  • Im so happy this is a video because all these healthy videos I see are people eating avocado toast and fruit smoothies and protein shakes… and as an asian, I don’t really eat any of this stuff. I was concerned about not being healthy, but I saw this, and it helped me relax more.

  • I think I’d like to orange my dinner for me and my future husband like ichijyu sansai every night!! I bet it’ll promote healthy eating and stress relief (that parts for me. Cooking and baking relives my stress a lot so if this takes hours to prepare and clean up after, than that’ll help me provide a better life ❤️)

  • This is great! I am so happy they offer vegetarian and vegan cooking classes! I think japanese monks eat mostly vegan too…or at least they used to? Does anyone know more about veganism in Japan?

  • I love anything with curry and this looks absolutely beautiful and I think it will taste even better! Thank you!!!!! >>>>> SHARED <<<<<

  • So they all have beans or chickpeas which I can’t eat like every other vegetarian recipie and this is why I’m not vegetarian anymore but I still get excited when I see recipes hoping its something I can eat and hopefully with high protein and I’m always disappointed ��

  • Looks so delicious but too much tofu! Main dish + in salad + in soup lol. I love tofu but not in everything I eat. Maybe mashed white beans in the salad and more veggies in the soup to replace the tofu?

  • Just an fyi one of your recipes used sauce that has worstechesire sauce and honey. Neither are vegan unless its a bee free honey and an anchovie free worchestechire sauce. I’m not upset by this since i know to remove those options and replace with more vegan things.

  • AHHH BEETROOT IN SOUP YES! My grandmother made a chicken beetroot soup a few years ago, and my sister and I still talk about it sometimes! But all the chicken beetroot soup recipes online are borscht….. D:

  • Hopefully someone replies but for “oil” can you mix light olive oil with sesame oil? And then how long would you recommend (for best flavor) to let simmer for?

    Thanks!

  • Really like your videos! but just want to inform you that Nutritional yeast has a common main compound as msg which makes it toxic for your brain and that is glutamic acid. So even though youre avoiding the sodium from commercial MSG crystals, youre still getting the toxins from glutamic acid in nutritional yeast which is terrible for your brain.

  • can you guys try at least a little harder and not use the same recipes from the kid friendly vegan food video? there are tons of vegan recipes

  • Counting calories are driving me nuts! Then I’m over exercising to the point of exhaustion and end up being feeling so starved at midnight!!! I have to eat!

  • Omg!!! This look so delicious!!!! My stomach now feel hungry after see this�� I miss my mom curry������ and I don’t know that vegetable can be look delicious like this!! Good job Miss Namiko������������������������

  • Brooooooo these are super helpful to me because I am new to vegetarianism, but I HATE mushrooms with a passion so I’ll have to tweak some of the recipes.

  • i`ve tried your beet seitan recipe,and it`s my fav now.I make it at least once a week,i was wondering what if i put nori sheets in the seitan and fish spices-i bet it will taste like fish!))))))

  • Was the tofu soft or more like a “sponge”? I’ve tried tofu before, like the “basic” kind that looks like a sponge (it has like tiny holes in it). I fried it in the pan with some herbs and spices but I still didn’t quit like the texture… it was like I was chewing for ages before I could swallow it x3

  • I absolutely love the way this was filmed. Seeing all of the steps in preparation broken down makes me feel like I could actually make this for dinner. It looks amazing and I love me some apple curry, so this will definitely be made in my kitchen. Thank you for sharing!

  • These are just a mashup of the old vegan videos of yours into a new video. Please make new recipes and don’t reuse old ones:/ it’s annoying

  • What makes me so sad is the fact that i can’t eat most Japanese food because I’m allergic to all types of seafood, especially shellfish ;^;

  • I tried the meatballs but they totally fell apart! As I still had half of it, I added an egg for a small quantity of the raw dough kinda thing and shaped it into a hamburger. 1 egg for 2 3 hamburguers. Then, I put them into the air frier (I think it would work in the oven, fried or grilled as well). It turned out amaaazing!! Best vegetarian hamburguer ever.

  • I’m sure you must have been asked this question a lot, but: Is it possible to survive in Japan while being vegan? Are you vegan? I’m really worried about that, cause I really want to spend some time in Japan, but I just CAN’T eat meat, eggs and dairy (with fish I’m not that strict, but still not very happy about the idea of having to eat it). Hugs from Barcelona! xx

  • I think the reason some of these are vegan rather than vegetarian (or have vegan ingredients) is because they try to really make good use of the videos. So they probably had a couple vegetarian recipes and decided hey I have some old vegan recipes clips to help bulk up the video. I think Tasty knows the difference between Vegan and vegetarian.

  • Thank you Nami San for the recipe.. I just came back from tokyo yesterday and you make e missed the curry rice that i’ve ate there.. Will try to make it soon. ☺️

  • I just fell in love with your deconstructed sushi plate! That’s one way I could finally get close to sushi (since I can’t stand the fishy smell of the seaweed, unfortunately).
    Thank you for providing so much inspiration XOXO

  • i have been very much into japanese food lately too and have been making it for the past two days! on tuesday i made teriyaki tofu, sesame/miso green beans, broccoli with gomashio (ground up roasted sesame seeds with salt i added some maple syrup too), raw silken tofu with a tamari/maple/roasted sesame oil glaze with scallions, raw ginger and more roasted sesame seeds and rice of course. so yummy! yesterday was a bit more simple as i was tired after coming home from work late i made some mapo doufu (kind of a fusion between the chinese version and the japanese, but added my own twist by adding chinese-five-spice to the mix). i used sake, mirin, miso, roasted sesame oil, maple sugar and indonesian sambal oelek chili paste (as i didn’t have tobanjan) for the sauce and used tvp instead of the ground beef and japanese silken tofu. very satisfying indeed! miso soup for breakfast sounds great, Mary i love your addition of beans! also for the sushi rolls i have to try both:) i am always so excited when you post a new video! keep up the good work as usual!

  • Thank you for sharing what you ate and all of your good tips:) Sitting here trying to decide between miso soup with natto or ramen or agedashi tofu for dinner.

  • Let’s clear it up, I’ve been vegetarian all my freaking life, so EggS are NOT vegetarian okkk, they might not be considered as “meat” but it’s still an animals and vegetarian or vegan DO NoT eat AnImaLS, vegans do not eat dairy (milk,cheese, yogurt,etc) or any animal produced food, and yes there are some “vegetarian “ who eat fish and eggs or one of them, but truly they aren’t fully vegetarian, ok bye

  • I can’t wait to try this but lmfao, idk why but when you called chopped apples “nature’s skittles” I started cracking up. ������ I love your channel btw, subscribed. ✊❤

  • Here I am drooling over ingredients I can’t afford and crying over the fact I can’t cook in college dorm. Super expensive dorm but you can’t cook anything and store anything –

  • Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay ��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������

  • while I have never used kabocha or any kind squash, this recipe has a lot of interesting ideas!
    I have never thought of grating apples to sweeten a dish, but it sounds amazingly delicious!

  • Yum! Looks delicious. I got so excited when i saw you uploaded a video because i really didn’t know what i was going to make for dinner.. hehe now i know! Thanks for posting:)

  • all of the recipes have such huge errors damn. Like they look good but I mean, imagine boiling mushrooms for a pasta like that…. ��

  • I make a version of that vegan ramen and it is so completely deliciouseven better if you roast the mushrooms in the oven first and use dark toasted sesame oil and shallots in the beginning.

  • Thanks for posting, Mary.  I like that you experiment with different temperatures for serving foods together; at this time of year, with the weather going, “Hot!  No, Warm!  No, Chilly! No, Hot!” it’s a good tack to take with meals.: )

  • This looks delicious! I need to try cooking this soon. Would it be possible to not make the roux so dark by cooking it less? My family is used to the Golden Curry brand which is lighter in color.

  • oh wow, I love your channel so much <3 I've been a vegetarian for 7 years but just for the past year or two started to get more into cooking and discovering more ways of cooking. Thank you for making this!

  • I’m originally from Nagoya, Japan. I love that kind of food. My American family always say there is no meat. I like light tasty veggie and tofu oriented food. My family esp my meat lover husband will never understand. He will eat it but he feels it’s not complete without meat. I’m not a vegetarian but veggies provide most of my fav food. Thanks for posting this.

  • I wanna eat this. Does anyone know a good japanese vegan cooking channel in english or at least with english subtitles? I would love to watch those. before I got into veganism, I used to cook japanese dishes from time to time and I liked it. would love to cook more good recipes. Usually I just throw vegan ingredients together and cook free-style. It’s kind of fun. But I want to try new different styles. I’m german and the german cuisine is not very vegan friendly, I think. At least where I live in bavaria.:/

  • I really love the way you make your videos!!  It always gives me great ideas for dinner…  And I also love the fact that you use whatever you have in your fridge to make something new.  So thank you!

  • Yummy! Really want to try this love the Japanese cuisine really love the vegan touch on it✨��good food for the mind and soul:D thank you for sharing this!

  • FYI:
    Dashi is a Japanese soup stock used for many dishes. Kombu Dashi (Kelp Broth) is a Vegan option. It includes only water and dried kelp. The easiest and fastest you can make is by mixing hot water and kelp Dashi powder sold at most Japanese grocery stores or maybe online!

  • I like flavors of Japanese cuisine, and I’m a vegetarian. This video can combine two of my preferences together. Thank you very much!

  • “…arrange them nicely in the pan”
    dumps out bag
    That made me laugh so hard, I don’t know why. XD
    It looks so good and I want to try to make this.:) Wonderful video!

  • Your home food looks so healthy and wholesome, at home we have alot of rice with black sesame and very meaty meats with lots of sodiums and good veggies like fermented cabbage with spinach or sweet potato but the meats and rice plus we have lots of big portions makes the foods feel unhealthy

  • what a success. very honest. here are some other effective recipes that can even reverse obesity, diabetes, high blood, and other diseases from dr. terry shintani’s peacediet.org or see his videos from http://www.AskDrShintani.com, please see them too!

  • I remember watching this video before, I didnt know you beforehand and I thought you were already vegan here and I got so disappointed when I learned that you were only trying vegan foods in this video. A few minutes ago, I saw your video from your other channel and learned youre already vegan. I just wanna tell you how happy I was learning that. Being vegan is fun, and I hope you enjoy it. Youtube is so vegan-friendlyand by that I meant tons of recipe videos you can try. One more tip: Watch all the youtube videos of Gary Yourofsky and the 101 ways to go vegan + great docus like Cowspiracy, Forks Over Knives and Earthlings.:)

  • I love this ☺thank you for making a vegan options video! I have also tried some of your recipes using store-bought meat substitutes and they were delicious! I love your channel ❤

  • After watching this video many times, I’ve been trying to incorporate more healthy options like you XD also, I know this isn’t related, but I really like that blue shirt XD I want to know where you got it loll keep up the good work <3

  • All of this looks soooo insanely delicious, omg. Though, what caught my attention the most was that bean teriyaki maki sushi you had for lunch.. My goodness, my mouth is drooling of jealousy and awe. I very much enjoy putting together a delectable deconstructed sushi plate for dinner too! Keep it up with the stellar content!

  • hi emily just want to. thank you for all the work out youve shared everyday. i feel energetic and your work out always complete my day keep. up. the good work more. subscribers to come. Godbless

  • THANK YOU FOR THIS!! I’m originally from HK too and I never want to sacrifice any good chinese food for the sake of being healthier but this was so nice to watch and relate to!!

  • This is so cool! Thank you for sharing some Japanese vegan recipes!! Iitadakimasu!

    The oil for the eggplant didn’t look hot enough at first, I think!:o But it all looked great.. that freeze dried tofu is new to me!

  • I am an Indian citizen. I am seeing your veg curry because my 9 year’s old daughter loves Japan very much. she knows about hokkaido, sakura and so much. so I have to learn Japanese veg curry. yummy
    thank you very much

  • The enchilada rice is super yum… I only added half a tsp of chili tho and half a tsp of salt cos the first time I made it, it was way too spicy and salty for me.

  • The text with instructions is very difficult to read. Is it possible to make it brighter or perhaps in a rectangle to see it better?

  • One day I found out that I didn’t have anymore boxed curry roux halfway through making curry. I made your recipe for homemade roux instead and my family said it was so delicious! Thank you!

  • Wow such a coincidence we had Japanese curry tonight and it was so delicious! Maybe next time we’ll try vegetarian version, thank you!
