Fortunately talented artists and chefs have taken to Twitter to provide recipes for creative dishes such as cheesecake that looks exactly like a cartoon hunk of cheese or Zen rock garden toast. Those looking to up their game to Michelin star-worthy cooking with little fuss are in luck, as Shusaku Toba, the owner-chef of Michelin one star Japanese-French restaurant Sio, is showing how to turn simple Japanese convenience store items into gourmet cooking with recipes that require very little prep! Toba shares the recipes in Japanese, but the step-by-step picture guides make things easy to understand. Here's a few of his creations that make a quick run to the conbini worth it. Of course, if you don't live near a Japanese convenience store, you can substitute similar items. マジでこれヤバい組み合わせなんですが、ピーナッツバターのランチパックに醤油を薄く塗りスライスチーズを乗せこんがり焼き目玉焼きと黒胡椒。醤油の香ばしさと塩気、ピーナッツバターのコクのある甘さ。要するに、みたらし団子。止まらないおいしさなんでぜひ。#おうちでsio #コンビニごはん pic.twitter.com/ZQJKZu8Uky— 鳥羽 周作 (@pirlo05050505) April 9, 2020 This simple recipe calls for lightly brushing a peanut butter Lunch Pack sandwich (of course, a homemade PB sandwich will suffice) with soy sauce and topped with a slice of cheese. Throw the sandwich into a toaster oven and add a fried egg on top. Toba says the salty aroma of the soy sauce and rich sweetness of the peanut butter is like mitarashi dango, mochi dumplings slathered in a sweet soy sauce. コンビニの卵パンを10秒袋のままチンをしてからハム、とろけるチーズを乗せてオーブントースターで焼き色が付くまで焼きますサクッとしながらもふわふわチーズのコクとハムの香りと卵のまろやかさ大袈裟でなくこれめちゃくちゃ美味い明日の朝はこれで決まり#おうちでsio pic.twitter.com/bE8K5wCCyu— 鳥羽 周作 (@pirlo05050505) April 7, 2020 Toba's simplest recipe will actually yield a crispy but fluffy Croque Monsieur or Monte Cristo sandwich. The chef recommends microwaving a convenience store egg sandwich (no microwave needed if you make your own) while still in the bag for ten seconds, coat with slices of ham and cheese, and then pop it in a toaster oven until brown. コンビニに売っているマヨコーンパンタップリのミックスチーズと山椒を振りかけオーブントースターへいい感じになったら取り出して仕上げに更に山椒を振りかけ出来上がりパンがサクサク コーンの甘さにピリっと山椒 是非試してみてください#おうちでsio pic.twitter.com/9vSNypcfGj— 鳥羽 周作 (@pirlo05050505) April 4, 2020 This one could get a little tricky without a Japanese convenience store, but looks fun nonetheless. The recipe calls for mayonnaise-corn bread popular at conbini. Simply top the bread with shredded cheese and Japanese sansho pepper, and let it cook in a toaster oven to your liking. Take it out and top with another serving of sansho pepper for sweet but citrusy and spicy bread treat. おはよう御座います#おうちでsio レシピ活用術大人気奈良漬けタルタルを作り過ぎたらこのように甘辛タレ系のサンドをレンジで温めてから軽くトースト奈良漬けタルタル挟むだけでめちゃ美味くなります キャベツ千切りとかあると更にいいす甘辛系の揚げ物には間違いないです時間ない人 おすすめ pic.twitter.com/8egaadDyzr— 鳥羽 周作 (@pirlo05050505) April 14, 2020 The chef's take on an upgrade tartar sauce katsu burger. Toba takes a cabbage and chicken menchi katsu sandwich from 7-11, and then tops it with a homemade sweetened tartar sauce (the chef's sauce uses mayo, chopped onions, fresh cream, honey, and Japanese tsukemono pickles). First microwave the sandwich, then after getting it extra crispy in a toaster oven, give it a heavy dollop of the tartar sauce (or your own concoction). If you want to see more of the chef's simple gourmet creations, be sure to follow him on Twitter, as well as a separate account dedicated for recipes.
