Last month, I wrote a post about Farmer’s Market that I got some vegetables. One of them was Kabu (Japanese white turnip). I got another one at Fujiya this time, so I searched for some recipe.

As I had some wieners in the freezer, I chose this recipe. It was easy to make. That is important for me!

Oh, it ended up a really good meal. If I get Kabu, I will make this again, especially in the winter time. The recipe is for 2, but I doubled the ingredients, because I wanted to use more Kabu before going bad.

Kabu and Wiener Pot-au-feu (Japanese)

[Ingredients] (serve for 2)

– Kabu 2
– Potato 1 big one
– Onion 1
– Carrot 1/2 big one
– Wiener/Sausage 6 (maybe 4 if big ones)
– Consume soup 3 cups
– Bay leaf 1
– Salt and Black Pepper pinch


  1. Cut the stems leaving 1cm with Kabu, peel and cut in half. Cut the stem and leaves part into 4-5cm long.
  2. Peel potato and onion and cut into 4 pieces. Cut carrot 4-6cm long like wiener.
  3. Put Kabu and its stems except leaves, and veggies, bay leaf, consome soup, into a pot, and boil. Once boiled, lower the heat and cook for 15 – 20 min. Add wieners and cook for another 10 min.
  4. When veggies are cooked softly, add Kabu leaves, and season with salt and black pepper.

I left the skin on Kabu so I cooked for extra min until it became soft. Also, to make the cooking time short, I cut veggies smaller than the recipe says.

While my friend and I were at Friday Night Market in North Vancouver, we found something interesting, root vegetable chips. A boy rather than an adult was selling the products. There were sample chips broken to small pieces in front of the booth, so we tried two kinds, vegetable chips, and potato chips. The vegetable one includes many different ingredients, sweet potato, yams, parsnips, beets, and taro.

There were small and large package. My friend got one small, and I got both small ones.

Potato chips were getting greasy in a couple days. Root veggies one was much better. I thought I wish I bought a large package. 🙂

While I was at Friday Night Market in North Vancouver with my friend in the middle of June, we tried a couple of street cart food. After eating, we looked around the booth/tents. There were many different baking stuff, chips, ice cream (oh, maybe Gelato?), soup, organic stuff, veggies and fruits.

We checked out one of the bakery thing. It was Sweet Thea. They sell pie, tart, and cookies. I asked the staff where they sell, and he said they are from Langley, but they don’t have a store. Mostly sell at market. That made us buy something, as we thought we didn’t get much chance to try other than this market. My friend got one tart, and I got two, for me and Collin.

I forgot to take a picture of the individual one at home.

Pear Almond tart was tasty, even I had next day. Collin seemed to like the lemon tart, too.
