Vegetarian Braised "Meat" Mushroom-Tofu Sauce/Rou-Zhao 素肉燥

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

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

If you do not know, I am a huge fan of The Big Bang Theory series. I never watched any American drama while growing up. Not a single one. However, we chanced upon The Big Bang Theory some years ago in the US when the local channel kept showing repeats, and then we were kinda (unknowingly) addicted a (Read more...)

Khorasan Wheat (Kamut) Bean Salad

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

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

The last time I made Garbanzo Beans/Chickpea Salad, I enjoyed it quite a lot. As a result, such bean salads make quite a regular appearance, especially on hot summer days; and given a new spin each time. As always, if I can accomplish a one-dish meal in a salad, why not?

Time to add some carbs.

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

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

Do you agree that Bibimbap is considered easy to prepare?

I cater to my own convenience(s) when I cook, so this might not be very authentic Korean bibimbap. However if you are looking for a fuss-free, quick and easy way to NUTRITIOUSLY and HEALTHILY satisfy lunch or dinner, then such a home-style bi (Read more...)

Black Trumpet/ Chanterelle Mushroom Pasta 蒜汁黑喇叭菌意大利面

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

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

In no time, I will be trying all the mushroom varieties at Far West Fungi, Saratoga Farmers Market. In my previous two trips, these black trumpet mushrooms failed to make it into the grocery basket because they were way too expensive - $10 for a small punnet! Therefore, I have been buying the afford (Read more...)

Kimchi Meatballs & Vegetables Noodles 韩式泡菜肉丸

Friday, March 20th, 2015

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

The wrappers ran out before the filling! With the remaining kimchi fillings from making kimchi wontons (boiled dumplings), I made meatballs (mini ones!) and they are such a flavorful addition to this noodle dish which otherwise would have been a vegetarian combination of carrots, mushrooms, mung bea (Read more...)

Ratatouille-Inspired Roasted Vegetables with Pasta 法式蔬菜杂烩

Friday, March 6th, 2015

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

Traditional ratatouille, the stew, starts with a base of tomatoes, garlic, onions, spices and seasonings with layers of vegetables e.g. eggplant, bell peppers, cooked in the base, then finished off either in the oven or over the stove-top.


What you are seeing here today may not be traditional ratatou (Read more...)

This is going to be a shocker! It is my first time using bacon at home after so many years of cooking!


Thanks for being sold as bulk - I can just buy 1-2 slices. Thanks for being on sale - two slices cost me $0.65. Thanks for the urge to create some new dishes - crispy bacon atop pasta sounds too go (Read more...)

Easy Turmeric-Spiced Vegetables Rice 黄姜菜饭

Friday, December 12th, 2014

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

Pepper up your turmeric-based curries! If you have heard, the alkaloid in black pepper - piperine, significantly enhances turmeric's curcumin bio-availability by as much as 1000% or even more (Source: HealwithFood). The next time you make any turmeric-spiced dish, make sure to give it a few good das (Read more...)

Udon Noodles in Meat Sauce 肉酱乌冬面

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

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

I recalled my first likeable and impressionable encounter with udon noodles in a Chinese restaurant. You have heard me right - a Chinese eatery, not Japanese. That Stir-Fry Udon Noodles in Black Pepper Sauce was absolutely delicious.


This is not Stir-Fry Udon Noodles in Black Pepper Sauce. However, (Read more...)

Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli, Cabbage Pasta Soup 甘蓝,西兰花,高丽菜汤

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

This bowl of soup is all part of the Brassica oleracea family which includes cabbage, brussel sprouts and broccoli (broccolini to be exact).

If there is only one essential tip to share for making this soup a success, it is to not over-cook the brussel sprouts and baby broccoli when they are added int (Read more...)
