Cooking Grains

In this class, we prepare Barley Salad, Brown Rice with Hato Mugi and Millet Mashed Potatoes. This class was originally broadcast on January 30, 2008.

Cooking With Beans

Beans and bean products are abundant sources of protein, and most people these days are unfamiliar with how to cook beans well, or the distinct characteristics of each. The class covers: Rice with black soybeans, Aduki beans with squash, Tempeh “tuna” and Black-eyed Pea Croquettes. This class was originally broadcast on February 6, 2008.


Many meals begin with soup, which relaxes the intestines and supports good digestion. In this class, we learn how to make Miso soup, Noodles in Broth, Squash soup and Split Pea Soup. This class was originally broadcast on February 20, 2008.

The Value of Vegetables

YAY VEGETABLES!! New ingredients and cooking styles are discussed in this class such as: Nishime, Pressed Salad and Boiled Salad with Pumpkin Seed Dressing. This class was originally broadcast on February 27, 2008.

Sea Vegetables

Yes, seaweed. Don’t be afraid. Seaweeds provide necessary minerals to the body and are absorbed by the human body in a way that dairy food is not. It’s essential to get familiar with seaweeds for long-term bone, skin, and hair health. Trust me, these recipes are delicious and you will never think of seaweed the same way again. We cook: Hijiki, Nori condiment, Sauteed Kombu and Seaweed Crunch! This class was originally broadcast on March 5, 2008.

Pickles and Condiments

These funky foods aid digestion, offer minerals and add variety to the diet. Did you ever think you’d made your own pickles? Well, you can start now! In this class, we make Miso pickles, Umeboshi pickles, Miso-Scallion condiment, gomasio and more! This class was originally broadcast on March 12, 2008.

Yummy Desserts

If you thought a healthy diet had to be boring, think again. By using rice syrup, maple syrup, fruits and fruit juices, the most amazing and delicious desserts are born. Don’t miss this class if you have a sweet tooth. We cook carrot cake, fruit kanten, raspberry sorbet and amazake pudding. This class originally aired on March 19, 2008.
