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.
In XXXHOLiC when Watanuki and Domeki aren't at school, they are generally being bothered by some spirits. And an interesting lady by the name of Yuuko.
These boy uniforms are as plain as plain can be and the same as most other boy school uniforms. These are particularly priest like because of the lanky way the characters are drawn. Oh Clamp! The girls uniforms aren't much better either. They get an ugly green skirt with a gray jacket. I like the buttons on the jacket but they seem out of place with the hideous fat white tie. Why the tie has a button on it I'll never figure out.
Overall: I'd rather wear one of Yuuko's outfits!
