Gado Gado, Vegetables in Peanut-Sauce 花生酱拌杂菜

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

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

The premonition is strong. We are going to have Gado Gado quite often this summer. In fact, we have had it some time ago when we were experiencing early 85+F heat just about two weeks ago, in spring, here in Bay Area, CA.


How would you dress this? I would almost always do it with peanut-sauce dressi (Read more...)

Friday, May 30th, 2014

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

My friend invited us to her place for lunch to try her Shanghai Vegetable Rice 上海菜饭. I must be in serious need for inspiration and motivation! The next thing I wanted to do after trying this dish, was to try making the same dish! And I wanted to cook it within the same week, with that vivid memory.

Garlic Eggplant 蒜香茄子

Eggplant is not one of my favorite food/ingredients to cook with, perhaps a misconception that it relentlessly absorbs oil during cooking.

However, that is because I seldom cook with high-heat and super-hot oil in the kitchen, which is how most eggplant dishes are churned out in Chinese restaurants - (Read more...)

Bok Choy with Oyster Mushrooms 青江菜清炒鸡腿菇/杏鲍菇

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

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

Have you heard some folks saying that the leaves of leafy greens are harder to digest compared to the stems, so it is often recommended - NOT to have them in the later part of the day e.g. dinner? Try to have leafy vegetables for lunch, brunch or even breakfast; so in that way, there is ample time t (Read more...)

Easy Rasam Soup 印度式酸辣汤

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

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

Rasam soup is a soup that can be enjoyed throughout the year, in my opinion. The warmth and spice is elevating in the cool hibernating temperatures of winter but the sourish-factor can be very appetizing when the weather gets too hot causing a loss in appetite.


This is an easy Rasam Soup that does n (Read more...)

Garlic Roasted Tomatoes with Fish 蒜烤小番茄

Monday, May 5th, 2014

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

For today, the focus is the roasted grape tomatoes with garlic, and not the fish. Do not under-estimate the umami in roasted tomatoes. Roast a batch and you can use it in several dishes though I bet these garlic roasted tomatoes will be gone without knowing, so don't even think of several dishes.

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

A tray of green beans, mushrooms and onions was sent into the oven while roasting the butternut squash; and the cooking pan holding all the Swiss chard was to serve "two purposes"  - Roasted Squash with Sauteed Swiss Chard; and this dish - Roasted Green Beans, Mushrooms and Sauteed Chard with P (Read more...)

Miso Butternut Squash Soup, dairy-free 味噌南瓜汤

Friday, April 4th, 2014

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

Sometimes, a dish can be "discovered" in unexpected ways: when the fridge is almost cleared of perishables such as milk and leafy greens before going on a short vacation; then just after you have returned and have not even get the time to stock up on some fresh produce/groceries to replenish the fri (Read more...)
