today I'm reviewing a product of a popular Japanese company- Kewpie is probably best known for its mayonnaise...
...and its cute baby mascot.

Personally, I think that's a tiny bit exaggerated, but anyways- getting crazy over food is a common thing in Japan.
While searching for interesting Japanese snacks for the dearies in Germany, I found "Kewpie's Gu no Sosu" on sale in the grocery section of a drug store. It's basically a tofu-mixed, multi-purpose bolognese sauce. Like shown on the package, it can be used as filling for onigiri or as an easy topping for your bento.
I used it to make "Ja-ja-men"-style pasta (Japanese bolognese, orinally Chinese noodle dish). It turned out really yummyThe balance of tofu and red soy bean paste is just right and it tastes quite close to freshly made -really recommended for super busy people.
If you would like to try it, but have no access to the original product, just add the right amount of the typical Japanese seasonings (sake, mirin, soysauce, dashi, miso & ginger) to your basic bolognese recipe.
Thank you for reading, dears.
