Smoked Salmon Rice Paper Rolls with Hoisin Peanut Dipping Sauce

Found a brand new pack of rice paper wrappers in my pantry so decided to make Vietnamese spring rolls. I remembered how much I enjoyed the Summer Rolls from Pho Street which also came with this savoury dipping sauce. I tried to recreate the piquant sauce with hoisin sauce, peanut butter and ground peanuts and […]

Shrimp Fried Quinoa Recipe

Shrimp Fried Rice Quinoa looks just like a regular fried rice. I just love quinoa’s versatility as we can serve it as a side or easily turn it into a one-dish main like this. I had previously made a similar fried quinoa – see Quinoa Fried Rice Recipe (with salmon) so you see how easy […]

Low Carb Tagliatelle al Ragu (using baiye tofu)

The subject heading is not wrong. This is indeed a low carb pasta recipe as I’ve substituted tagliatelle with baiye tofu instead. Baiye tofu typically comes in a compressed block of beancurd skin so we just need to slice it up in 1cm thickness and then use our hands to loosen it up into individual […]

Stuffed Peppers with Salsa Rice and Chicken

Normally, I would bake stuffed peppers in the oven with a layer of cheese on top just like this simple recipe with minced beef, onions and cherry tomatoes. This time round, I decided to make a one dish meal out of red peppers and hence used a mix of brown and red rice to bulk […]

Quinoa Fried Rice Recipe (with salmon)

Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wah’) is not something that’s commonly served in restaurants here in Singapore and most probably many families might not even hear of or know much about it. Quinoa is a type of grain but it’s a protein (not carb) and it’s wheat-free so it’s very suitable for people on gluten-free or low-carb diets. […]

Spicy Sweet Hotdog and French Fries

I was inspired to make this dish at home because of a previous bad experience when I ordered a similar dish from a mixed rice stall in my neighbourhood. The hotdogs and french fries were all deep fried in oil – very crispy but the fries were oozing oil with every bite which became quite […]

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

It’s the last day of 2015. I’m sure many of us would have made new year resolutions or perhaps thought about things that we would like to see improved in the coming year. Eating healthy and stepping up on my exercise regimen (and hopefully stick to it) have always been on my agenda and most […]

Roti Jala Recipe

Roti Jala (or lacy/net pancake) is a popular Malaysian snack that is usually served with chicken or mutton curry. The ones that we get from outside are yellowish in colour (with added ground turmeric) and may also contain coconut milk for that extra aroma. For my healthy version of roti jala, I substituted the coconut […]

Steamed Tofu Recipe (with prawns, oyster mushrooms & egg custard)

Steamed tofu? Standard. Steamed egg? Boring. How about steamed tofu with steamed egg and a whole lot more of flavour and crunch? And indeed, this was what I came up with, that truly represented my passion for ‘rojak’ (means ‘mixture’ in Malay) cooking, lol. I had so much ingredients, sauce & garnish on top that […]

Kimchi Chicken Meatball Wrap Recipe

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of quirky cooking ideas popping into my head every now and then. Perhaps it’s because I’m exposed to so many different cuisines all the time that when I’m doing meal planning, I would tend to add a little bit of this and a little bit of that into my […]

Spring Onion Pancake Recipe (with my home-grown spring onions)

Watching my tomato and chilli seeds sprouting and growing up everyday for the last few months has been quite phenomenal because it just feels like I’m bringing up little kids, haha. Due to the inadequate conditions of my make-do ‘concrete gardening plot’ at the lift lobby outside my apartment, my tomato and chilli seem to […]

There’s nothing better than having a cheat day to emotionally satisfy our craving which is something that the husband and I always look forward to. So what’s cooking up today? Crispy and crunchy, deep-fried wontons! This recipe is similar to my soupy wonton recipe except that I have used pork instead of chicken and more prawns […]

Scotch Egg Recipe

I had my first Scotch egg when I first went to England many years ago. Bought a ready-to-eat one from Sainsbury’s which wasn’t out of this world but it was still decent since it was considered a novelty snack to me. In my recent cruise on Sapphire Princess, I had an outstanding Scotch egg during […]

Cauliflower & Potato Puree with Mushrooms Recipe

While I’m not exactly on a diet, I do like to seek out food alternatives that are healthier and/or have lower calories than their regular counterparts. One good example is opting for mashed cauliflower (check out my recipe here) rather than mashed potato because the former contains only 1/3 of the calories of potato (100g […]
