Win a box of ‘Vegan (菜食): Plant-Based Specialties‘ Nourishing Essentials Care Package from Kokoro Care Packages today! This is a worldwide giveaway, so enter for your chance to win the delicious box for yourself.
Japanese cuisine tends to be seasonal and plant-based, incorporating herbs, vegetables, tofu and wheat gluten. However, eating an entirely vegan diet in Japan can be a challenge. Kokoro Care Packages has curated a selection of exclusively vegan products in their upcoming August “Vegan” Care Package.
The giveaway is open to Just One Cookbook readers worldwide (35+ countries) and three (3) lucky winners will be selected!
What’s in the Vegan Nourishing Care Package
Each winner will win a box of Kokoro Care Package that features:
RAW OKARA (SOYBEAN PULP)
Typically found dried, this unique okara (soybean pulp) is a first in the industry to be available raw (which helps to maintain its moisture) without requiring refrigeration before opening. It’s made in small batches and is a popular gluten-free substitute for wheat flour with less sugar.
IMO KENPI (SWEET POTATO FRIES SNACK)
A popular, crunchy Japanese snack made from sweet potatoes in the shape of thin french fries and coated in sugar. These capture the nostalgic taste of imo kenpi in an all-natural, old-fashioned snack made from sweet potatoes from Kyushu.
ORGANIC MISO SOUP
This organic vegan miso soup uses an entirely plant based seasoned miso which is combined with organic spinach, tofu and green onions to create a delicious and unique vegan miso soup that is slightly sweeter than regular miso soup.
NORI PASTE WITH YUZU KOSHO (NORI KURO)
This artisanal condiment combines two iconic Japanese spreads: nori paste (tsukudani) and yuzu kosho, blended with a carefully selected vinegar which perfectly enhances the flavor of the seaweed and the spicy tingle of the yuzu kosho.
SANSHO PEPPER MAZEMEN (MIXED NOODLES)
Mazemen (lit. “mixed noodles”) is a delicious Japanese noodle dish that is served without any broth or soup. This spicy instant mazemen is vegan-friendly and includes soy, organic soy sauce, jumbo garlic and sansho (also known as “Japanese peppercorn”).
VEGAN SUSHI MIX
This flavorful sushi mix is filled with four carefully selected Japanese ingredients: koya dofu (freeze-dried tofu), carrots, burdock root, and shiitake mushrooms. It’s a convenient way to make chirashizushi (sushi rice bowl) but can also be used mixed with rice or in miso soup.
YUME-WAKABA SINGLE ORIGIN PREMIUM SAYAMA TEA
This sencha green tea is a relatively new and rare cultivar from the famous tea producing region of Sayama in Saitama Prefecture. It’s a single variety tea cultivated only in the Shimizuen plantation and has a signature aroma of vanilla and milk.
About Kokoro Care Packages
Kokoro (written as 心 in kanji) translates into “heart” in Japanese, yet has a much deeper meaning. It represents the “spirit”, “soul” and “emotion”, and is the foundation of each of the Kokoro Care Packages. You can read more here
Kokoro Care Packages was founded by two female entrepreneurs, Lillian Hanako Rowlatt and Aki Sugiyama, two friends living an ocean apart but who wanted to share their love of authentic Japanese food while supporting local Japanese farmers and producers. They offer a curation of premium-quality, artisanal, all-natural Japanese foods delivered straight from Japan to your door. All products are free from chemicals and many cannot be found outside of Japan.
They work closely with local producers who share their values and are passionate about the foods they create while connecting you to their stories and their communities. They also include all the English translations and recipes making their products easy to enjoy.
