Time for a “Murakami meal”: I had carrots and potatoes, and some soy beans in the freezer. I cooked everything in the microwave, then stir-fried the potatoes in butter and soy sauce.

  • Cut the carrots into julienne strips, add a tablespoon mirin and cook them in the microwave at full power (900W) for 4 minutes.
  • Cut the shiitake mushrooms into small strips.
  • Add the soy beans and shiitake mushrooms to the carrots and microwave at full power (900W) for 2 minutes.
  • Heat the butter and fry the sesame seeds and ginger for a minute.
