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.

As I mentioned in the previous post, there was another event, Street Food City II, at Vancouver Art Gallery, during the Dine Out Vancouver festival. Next day, I went there again, but with Collin, as he said he wanted to go for brunch. I told him there was a food truck even for breakfast!

I checked the street food app after midnight which food carts would be open that day. (I wish I can search by tomorrow or day, e.g, Saturday, and also by location, to plan ahead.) Anyways, there were too many, so I gave up looking at each one at the end.

So, first off, Collin found a truck where someone who he knows was on. It was Ze Bite. They offer French gourmet fast food, including stews and baguette sandwiches.

We ordered from their stew menu. Stew comes with rice or couscous and bread, and you can choose a size either small or large.

Rice was brown rice, which is recently getting popular in Vancouver, and stew was thick that I can’t even believe it is used gluten free ingredients. That’s impressive. They have vegetarian choices, too.

The stew taste was OK. I prefer to Collin’s. Haha. Maybe, I would try some baguette next time.

My friend and I skied and headed to 7th Heaven area on Blackcomb mountain. After 1:30pm, we wanted to have some bite. If we’re heading down to Rendezvous, we won’t be able to come back to the area, so we decided to stay in the area and have some food at Horstman Hut.

The hut is at the top of 7th Heaven chair lift and Horstman T-bar, at the elevation, 2,284 m.

I ordered Soup with Fresh Bread. There were two choices of soup, peas or mushrooms. I chose peas soup.

My friend ordered Meat Pie with Mashed Potatoes, but I forgot to take a picture. It looked like a huge meal.
