I am sad to announce that SOAKS – Nakameguro has permanently closed down, and is no longer offering their services. However, HealthyTOKYO.com have a vast range of other vegetarian cafes and restaurants we would be happy to introduce to you. Such as Trueberry, also located in Nakameguro! You can also continue to enjoy the recipes provided by SOAKS on out site.
SOAKS Cafe in Nakameguro is the first vegetable powder café in Japan and a new member of HealthyTOKYO.com.
Kumiko Takeshima, the owner of this wonderful organic café with a large selection of healthy vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes has produced a video about how to make trendy “jar salad”, fortified with one gram of powdered ginger straight from her arsenal of Soaks’ certified fertilizer-free vegetable powders. One gram of powdered ginger is what you get when you powder 100 grams of fresh ginger. Delicious energy packed salad that is really easy to make.
The video tells it all, but for those of you who would like to get your ingredients together beforehand, please see the list below for a rundown of what you will need. Enjoy the famous jar salad with ginger powder dressing!
- One “Ball Jar” or other similar jar
- Ginger powder– 1g
- White wine vinegar – 20g
- Olive oil- 5g
- Apple juice – 5g
- Honey – 5g
- Herb Salt – a pinch
- Pepper – to taste
First add ginger powder to olive oil and stir thoroughly. Combine remaining ingredients and mix until all are evenly distributed into a delicious dressing.
- Broccoli – 4 florets
- Cauliflower – 4 florets
- Red and Yellow Peppers (Paprika) – 1/4 each, cut in strips
- Cherry tomatoes – 5 or 6

Cut or tear all vegetables into mouth size pieces. Using the empty jar add all dressing. Layer vegetables in the following order from harder to softer; mixed beans, broccoli and cauliflower, tomatoes, paprika and lettuce leaves.
That the easy way to make a delicious jar salad with ginger powder dressing.
