Tamagoyaki with Rakkyo Pickles For Bento or Breakfast

I added leftover pickled leeks in a tamagoyaki and it was sweet, refreshing, and perfect for lunch.


Rakkyo pickles (minced)
2-3 tablespoons
1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Mince the rakkyo pickles, add the beaten egg, shiro-dashi, and vinegar and mix together well.
2. Heat oil a little more than usual in a tamagoyaki pan on medium heat and add half of the mixture from Step 1. Cook it until it is like a half-cooked scrambled egg, stir it and gather it at the far end of the pan.
3. Lower the heat and add the rest of Step 1. Pour it in so it gets under the egg you cooked first. Let it sit and cook for 1 minute while paying attention to the strength of the heat.
4. Roll it once. When it's half-cooked and crumbly, don't worry. Use a spatula to gently roll it again.
5. Form it into a rectangle. Continue cooking on low heat while keeping an eye on it.
6. Flip it once again, arrange it into a rectangle, and thoroughly cook it on low heat.
7. When it has finished cooking, let it cool completely on top of a paper towel.
8. Once completely cooled, you can cut it neatly.
