norecipesIn Japan, New Year's Eve is celebrated by eating Toshikoshi Soba (年越しそば), or "year crossing soba". The noodles are extra long, which symbolizes a long life, and buckwheat is a hardy plant that can weather hardships. There's also the symbolism of soba noodles being easy to cut, which represents the change from one year to the next. I like serving my soba with kakiage, which is a kind of fritter made with julienned root vegetables and tempura batter. Today's kakiage has red carrots, yellow carrots, sweet potato, onion, burdock, and mitsuba. #oshougatsu #newyearseve #nye2017 #japanesefood
