Carrots with Ground Soybean and Sesame Dressing

A delicious salad of julienned carrots and turnips that goes well with a dressing of lots of sesame seed and kinako (roasted soybean flour). Eating nutritiously is the key to beautiful skin.

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

Turnip (sprinkled with a little salt)
Toasted white sesame seeds
3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
1/2 teaspoons
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
Vegetable oil

Shiso leaves (julienne)
to taste


1. Finely julienne the carrot, and blanch briefly in boiling water. Drain into a colander or sieve.
2. Finely julienne the turnip, sprinkle with a little salt and let rest for a while. When the turnip starts to get limp, squeeze out excess water with the carrot and plate.
3. Grind the toasted sesame seeds until it starts to get moist and oily. Add the kinako and sugar and mix, then add the rest of the flavoring ingredients and mix well. Pour over the salad, add the julienned shiso leaves as garnish and you're done.
