"No-cook" Tomato Sauce 蕃茄拌面/蕃茄意大利面

Monday, October 13th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

If heirloom tomatoes were always in their peak, I may just buy them every time, forever. They are naturally plump, juicy and sweet, putting all "industrially-grown" tomatoes to shame. Though we are already into October and seeing less heirloom tomatoes, I am not going to give the last batch of heirl (Read more...)

Kale, Tomatoes, Mushrooms Soup 羽衣甘蓝蕃茄蘑菇清汤

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Of the variety of kale available - do you have a favorite? I don't. I like using baby kale in a super-easy-and-quick stir-fry, red kale in a fruit and vegetable salad, green (curly) or lacinato (dino kale) in soups or stir-fries. Besides kale stir-fries, I am also constantly thinking of new ways to (Read more...)

Asian-Style Rice Vermicelli Bolognese 肉酱米粉

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

This dish is unconventional and that thick rice vermicelli stands out as being THE unconventional "pasta" alternative. So this is bolognese with an Asian twist!

Bunashimeji (beech) mushrooms and green onions (instead of herbs) - that's not very authentic bolognese either. Awww...


Whatever. As long as (Read more...)

Easy Vegetarian Fried Rice 蔬菜蛋炒饭

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

A bowl of steamed white rice is precious in our home. Not only it is food and that every bit of food should not be wasted, it is also an "ingredient" that is hard to come by as it is not our home's grain-staple.

The only few times we have leftover cooked white rice at home is when there is remaining (Read more...)

Grilled Eel Rice, Unagi Don 鳗鱼饭

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Not until I saw eel and eel bento being promoted all over on ad flyers of two of my neighborhood Japanese supermarkets, I did not even know the existence of a day Doyo-ushi - a day in Japan that is "dedicated" to eating eel (unagi). Generally, the consumption of eel during hot and humid summer days (Read more...)

Vegetables-Simmered Rice Vermicelli “Stir-Fry" 蔬菜焖米粉

Whenever we visit Singapore, the flight would typically be the wee hours in the morning, flying in from San Francisco. In our most recent April visit, it was an evening flight instead, coincidentally coinciding with late dinner time at my parents'.

Few days before our arrival, I had particularly requ (Read more...)

Mushrooms Spinach Saute with Noodles and Egg 清炒蘑菇菠菜

Monday, July 7th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Preparing a meal for one (self) can be quite demotivating. Rather, it is wanting the MOST - tasty, nutritious, healthy, from the LEAST - time and effort. When you cook for a family (two of more), the ROI seems to be higher. No?

ROI or "Return of Investment". Consider this - for a little more time and (Read more...)

Spiced Potato Tomato Rice, Indian Biryani-Style 印度式土豆番茄饭

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Remember this one-pot Cabbage Rice? The idea of fuss-free cooking where it is best to cook "everything" (carbs, vegetables, protein) in one-pot or one-pan, never fails to inspire me in creating new dishes. Chicken soup turns chicken soup noodles, stir-fry vegetables transforms to a vegetable stir-fr (Read more...)

Easy Healthy Korean Bibimbap 韩式拌饭

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

I found you at last! Without much procrastination, I have to "own" you especially when I do not go to the Korean grocery store that often. A few days after, you are already put to good use.

I have thought about making bibimbap at home for some time. Something is just lacking and you are critical.

Couscous Sushi – Salmon Flakes, Octopus Salad 熏鱼北非小米寿司

Friday, June 13th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

The best perk about making sushi at home is that you can toy with thousand and one ideas for your preferred filling. The sushi flavors can be limitless. You can have what you can't get in store-bought sushi. In fact, this perk to DIY "Do-It-Yourself" is not reserved for sushi but nearly...everything (Read more...)
