Vegan Goya Champuru: Okinawan Style Ikigai Diet Dish

Posted by

Okinawa is one of the Blue Zones and it has a lot of healthy dishes. One of them is goya champuru which is made with a vegetable called goya.


Goya is famous for having a lot of health benefits; rich in vitamins and minerals, good for cancer and type 2 diabetes, and has anti-aging and weight loss effects. You definitely want to include it in your diet.


Nevertheless, it is very bitter as it is also called a bitter melon. Well, that is why it is so good since it is often said the more bitter the medicine is, the more effective it is.


Goya champuru is the most famous dish using goya, but it usually contains pork and eggs.


So what I do is to make it without them, just only with tofu. I put more vegetables instead. You can put all kinds of vegetables like onions, carrots, eggplants, and green peppers. This time, I made it with onions, carrots, and burdocks. I sprinkled sesame seeds on top.
