Niratama

Niratama


Nira is a green vegetable called “chives” in English and tama means egg in Japanese. I used fresh, organic nira that my teacher, Don, grew in his back yard. This vegetable has a unique smell and may be new to you. But the smell goes away after you cook it, is loaded with vitamins, and is good for eliminating fatigue. If you have a chance to go to an Asian supermarket, please look for this vegetable! It’s a great side dish!
