Saturday "Farmers Market" Home Dinner

It was such a beautiful day last Saturday. So, we drove down to Torrance for shopping at their farmers' market.

We bought a lot of vegetables as well as seafood.

Then, we drove up to Gardena to pick up some tofu at Meiji Tofu. After the shopping, we had lunch at Otafuku. They make very good soba. I had their Kikouchi Soba (made of 100% buckwheat) with tororo (grated mountain yam) in the dipping sauce. Nice.

With all the ingredients from the farmers market, I made a simple meal. Roasted beet salad, oven-baked herb barramundi (wild-caught from New Zealand), and steam-fry kale and dry chanterelle mushrooms (made with my tagine-style donabe, "Fukkura-san").

Very satisfying.
