Hello! How is everyone doing? Hope you enjoyed the Christmas and year-end holiday break. I (and this blog) took a week off from posting and we are now back with a few more days to go before we say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014!

Today's post is about sausage-less sausages. You won't miss the meat (Read more...)

Baked Vegetarian Spring/ Egg Rolls – Brussel Sprouts & Mushrooms 素春卷 (非油炸)

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

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

I have always doubt the crispiness of baked spring rolls. I mean, how can "baked" ever compare to deep-fried crispiness ? Today I have come to confirm this. Baked spring rolls MAY NOT look perfectly golden-brown BUT they CAN BE crispy. Yes, THESE ARE CRISPY!


What does that mean? A person who enjoys d (Read more...)

This definitely looks like baby food!!! Well, but it should also ease into an adult's palate, especially when one is under the weather or simply yearn for a one-pot hot "something" on a cold winter night. Congee it is!

Collard, Pumpkin Bean Soup & Avocado Toast

I have cooked this bean soup (Tuscan Bean Soup) before, but this time replacing the "greens" from kale to collard.

I enjoy making such bean-style soups - warm and wholesome especially towards the last few months of the year when it is typically colder; and this is also the time when I bring in the Im (Read more...)

Fish "Tofu"and Tomato Rice Noodle Soup 鱼豆腐番茄果条汤

One of the best ways to enjoy these precious organic heirloom tomatoes is using them, fresh and raw, in salads.

But it was a cold winter day and salads were not the best way to go.

I want a piping hot soup on this blustery day. A Rice Noodles Soup might just be it.


This noodle soup is very similar to (Read more...)

Peanut Butter-Sesame Mushroom Broccoli Salad

Recently I have been making t (Read more...)

It might not be scientifically proven but whenever possible, I try to cook seaweed soup especially after a long-haul flight (=exposure to cosmic radiation) to prevent radiation poisoning of the thyroid. When the body is saturated with natural iodine from seaweed, it more readily removes radioactive (Read more...)

Vegetarian Spaghetti Squash "Noodles"

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

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

Not that I am into any low-carb diet and looking to substitute wheat or rice noodles with low-carb noodles (e.g spaghetti squash, Shirataki noodles) but this can serve as a alternative "noodle" dish if you wish to - using spaghetti squash as the "noodle".


This is how it looks like at the start...

Cooking oil - the fuel to our food. What type of cooking oil(s) are you using? Again, I am referring to "cooking" oil - so let's not talk about extra virgin olive oil typically used for dressing salads, or maybe marinating, sometimes that finishing touch to a completed dish.

Sambal Green Beans & Nasi Lemak

What makes a Nasi Lemak your Nasi Lemak? What makes it work for you?


Some say it is the coconut rice. Fail the coconut rice and fail Nasi Lemak. Or is it the sambal chili? Oh yes, it is the sambal chili! Imagine Nasi Lemak without chili? A deal-breaker for me.
