Cooking With Oishii Anime 01

Cooking With Oishii Anime 01

Welcome to the first post of a new series of posts where I will be cooking a dish that I've seen in an anime! I'll keep it simple for my first one and honestly cheat a little since everything is store bought this time around and just tossed together but it's a great intro post none the less!

Which anime is that delicious dish from? xxxHOLiC Rou! I suggest checking it out of you liked the xxxHOLiC series.

What is that delicious dish? Pesto pasta with sunflower seeds sprinkled on top!

How do I make that delicious dish?

The Pasta: Any kind of your choice will do.

  • Boil some raw pasta.

The Pesto: You can use whatever pesto recipe you wish honestly because pesto is awesome and you can be super creative with what you put in it. Here's my really basic one.

  • 4 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh Basil Leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of crumbled Firm Tofu
  • 2 tablespoons of Pine Nuts
  • 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Fish Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of Fresh Lime Juice
  • Garlic, Salt, and Pepper to your taste

Mix all ingredients together in a food processor.

Note: If you don't want to add tofu just double the amount of pine nuts. The pine nuts can be substituted with walnuts if you wish. They are cheaper.

Note: If it turns out to be too watery toss in some extra tofu or pine nuts to firm it up. If it's too dry add in some extra olive oil.

The Dish: Mine serves 2 but you can make as much or as little as you desire.

  • After your pasta is boiled, strain it and put it into a bowl.
  • Mix in your desired amount of pesto (mine was 2 table spoons) so that all the pieces of pasta are covered.
  • Plate, toss some sunflower seeds on top, and serve.


If you have a picture of some yummy anime food you think I could re-create send a message or leave a comment. Which anime the picture is from would help me greatly along with the episode number it is featured in.

    I’ve always wanted to start this! I once made a post about how to make Mapo Tofu and it was pretty well received, but I really haven’t had many other ideas. I guess I just watching boring anime *sigh*

    I’d love to see more of these in the future!

    This looks delicious, once again! I’m used to seeing pesto cream pastas, but thinks alternative looks to be much healthier. Your finished product picture is also a nice addition to encouraging me to give it a try.
