Shojin cooking is a type of cooking commonly practiced by Buddhist monks in Japan. In bygone days, shojin originally meant “zeal in progressing along the path of enlightenment” or “pursuing a state of mind free of worldly thoughts and attachment.” In shojin cooking, nothing goes to waste when preparing the dishes – every last piece of each ingredient is somehow incorporated into the meal. Garlic, onion and other pungent flavors are not used in shojin cooking. Learn this approach to nourishment with us as we prepare Mushroom-Seasoned Rice, Kenchin-jiru (a tamari soy sauce-based Japanese vegetarian soup), and Deep-Fried Tofu with Vegetables.
