Let’s cook something easy, healthy, and fun with your kids! This tuna okara sandwich contains a good amount of soy protein and fiber from okara (soy pulp that you can get from local supermarket at quite a reasonable price). Slicing the tomato just a little bit makes it easier to keep it on the bread. I kept the stem of the tomato to make antennae, but it will do without them.

Servings:  2 sandwiches
Cooking time: 30 min (with kids)


  • 2 pieces of french baguette (15cm long each) or any bread you like
  • 40g of canned tuna (drained)
  • 4 tbs of raw okara
  • 2 tbs of finely chopped onion
  • 1 tbs of yogurt
  • 1 tbs of mayonnaise
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of pepper
  • 1 tbs of butter
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 mini tomatoes
  • Small amount of hard cheese (for caterpillar’s eyes)
  • 4 pieced of black sesame seeds (for caterpillar’s eyes)


  1. Combine tuna, okara, onion, yogurt, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper, and mix well.
  2. Slice bread if needed, and toast lightly. Spread butter, then the tuna okara mixture.
  3. Place cucumber slices and mini tomatoes on tuna okara spread.
  4. Put small pieces of hard cheese on tomatoes, then black sesame seeds to make eyes.
