Rice Stuffed Hatch Chili Pepper

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

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

Hatch is to chili pepper, just as Champagne is to sparkling wine. Now, this is how I remember what Hatch Chile is all about.


As the pickled Hatch chili was "tested" mild- or even non-spicy, the rest of the hatch peppers did not share the same fate. They were stuffed with some leftover fried rice ( (Read more...)

Chayote with Woodear Mushrooms 佛手瓜拌麻油黑木耳

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

The hot summer days usually spearhead me to do the minimal, especially in the kitchen. Moreover, a vegetable salad (e.g. Gado Gado, Broccoli Mushroom Salad) is easier and more comforting on the stomach when one loses appetite in the scorching heat. It might be a salad in name but in my kitchen, sala (Read more...)

These Korean sides-cum-appetizers including Korean Chilled Tofu and Korean Spicy Tofu, are not difficult to prepare, and complement very well wit (Read more...)

Widely known as no-carb or low-carb noodles and a great alternative to pasta was what really did not appeal to me at first as I cannot do without carbs.

Now, I should have tried Zucchini Noodles earlier since I like how this present itself as a vegetarian side-dish, nicely paired with steamed rice or (Read more...)

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...)

Tofu Vegetables Rice Paper Rolls 素米卷

Saturday, July 18th, 2015

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

If you work (or cook) in the kitchen very often, you will find that you get new ideas for your next dish just when you are preparing the current dish. Do you?


These rice rolls were "conceptualized" when I made tofu bibimbap. I was thinking - most of these ingredients can actually fit into a rice wrap (Read more...)

Easy Bibimbap, Mixed Vegetables Rice 韩式拌饭

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...)

Napa Cabbage, Bok Choy with Mushrooms, Tofu 大白菜焖蘑菇豆腐

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

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

Is this a vegetable stir-fry or a vegetable braise? This dish leans towards quick and simple braising (in this context which means frying it quickly then simmering in a covered pot with a small amount of liquid) of  Napa cabbage with mushrooms and tofu.

Unlike Napa Cabbage, Mushrooms and Tofu St (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...)
