Nikujaga, the 225 calorie meal.

It has been rather cold lately here in the UK.

Not too cold to snow though.


Now that it’s warming up a little, most of us are still getting over the sniffles and what is more welcome at those times than stew?

This is a Japanese stew I decided to make up as I went along with tasting as my guide.

I’m naming it Nikujaga (meat & potatoes) as it seems to fit that description well.

It was very good I have to say, my hubby even ordered another bowl after he was stuffed.

Another great thing is that the whole pot comes to under 900 calories and it makes about 4 servings (or two and a half in my household).

Healthy, low in calories and tasty!
Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Kale salad!

For that few a calories this has chicken, chunky carrots and potatoes, peas, Shiitake mushrooms and the oh-so-tasty broth.

Yummmmm, yum.

So chuck out your lettuce leaves, vinaigrette and croutons.
Try something that is flavoursome comforting, healthy, and delicious, stew!

It doesn’t feel like diet food!!

  1. Nikujaga? Haha that’s a really famous Japanese dish (even has the same name!). It has stewed beef, carrots, potatoes, and peas mixed in a broth of dashi, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. Girls often brag that they can make this because if you can make this dish, it means that you’re a good cook! Seems like you’re already a good cook!


  2. At first glance of the picture, it looks like our local Chicken Caldereta with lots of sauce.

    Looks good 🙂
