You can make them bigger or smaller. The size of your heart is up to you 😝



---------------------------------
Heart-Shaped Mini Melonpan

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 60min
Number of servings: 24 mini (5cm/2inch) Melonpan

Ingredients:
4~6 hot dog buns (or any kind of fluffy bun)
4 tbsp. (50g) butter (softened)
3~4 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 egg
Wilton Icing Gel Color red
vanilla extract
1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
1/3 tsp. baking powder
granulated sugar for coating

Directions:
1. Cut out the hot dog buns using a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Bottom half of the buns work perfect.
2. Beat butter and sugar until creamy, add egg little by little and mix well. Add Wilton Icing Gel Color red to make it pink. If you want, you can add a few drops of vanilla extract.
3. Sift in flour and baking powder and mix well.
4. Spoon the cookie dough onto the bun, wrap with plastic wrap to coat the bun with the cookie topping.
5. Roll in the granulated sugar and place it on a parchment paper about an inch apart. With a scraper or a knife, score the cookie dough in a criss-cross pattern.
6. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Meanwhile place the Melonpan in the fridge to set. (Up to 30 minutes is ok)
7. Bake at 350F (180C) for 10 minutes. (Depending on the heat of the oven, cooking time may differ, so please watch out.)

I made a regular round Melonpan before; however, the video is not available in certain countries because of the BGM I used...😢

How to Cook Whole Tomato Rice in a Pot - Video Recipe

After sharing the Whole Tomato Rice using a rice cooker, I received many requests using a pot and a soup stock.

Kombu soup stock adds UMAMI. Yummy!!!
Any soup stock will do, of course 😋

Kombu Dashi Stock I used in this video:
Riken Sozairyoku Dashi Kombu Dashi Powder (No MSG / No salt added)
リケン 素材力だし こんぶだし (化学調味料/食塩を無添加)

---------------------------------
Whole Tomato Rice in a Pot

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1hr
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
2 cups (300g/10.6oz.) uncooked Japanese rice
400ml Kombu soup stock (No MSG / No salt added)
3/4 tsp. salt
a bit of pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
1 tomato

Directions:
1. Wash rice (4~5times), drain in a strainer, then leave for about 30 minutes.
2. Place the rice in a pot, add Kombu soup stock and the seasonings, then mix well.
3. Remove the tomato stem (and the bottom if you want) and place it in the pot.
4. Put on medium, when it comes to a boil, cover, turn down to low, then cook for 13 minutes.
5. When it's done, stop the heat, do not open and let it steam for about 15 minutes.
6. Remove the tomato skin if you don't like it, toss the rice lightly using a rice paddle, then serve.

I used Kombu soup stock No MSG / No salt added.

If you want to use the soup stock seasoned with salt, please remove or reduce the amount of the salt in this recipe.
