Healthy Vegetable Korma Recipe (suitable for vegetarians)

Korma is a South Asian dish that is made by braising meat and/or vegetables with yogurt/cream, water/stock and spices.

King Oyster Mushroom Aglio Olio Recipe

I think the king oyster mushroom really makes a great vegetarian substitute to meat because its texture is firm with an excellent bite and it doesn’t have a strong earthy smell like its other mushroom friends.

Chap Chye (Mixed Vegetables Stew) Recipe

I’m sure almost every family has their own chap chyeΒ recipe because it’s one dish that is never fixed in terms of ingredients used. If I recalled correctly, Gran’s Nonya Chap ChyeΒ included cabbage but did not have firm bean curd. And Mum’s version tasted very earthy from the huge amount ofΒ mushrooms used. Anyway, IΒ had never beenΒ a […]

Kailan with Silken Tofu Recipe

I eat a lot of tofu, not just because it’s nutritious but I like how versatile it is that you can braise, boil, steam or fry it. And since I’m trying to cut down on carbs and meat, tofu is my best source of protein that is low in calories yet filling enough for me. […]

Stir Fried Bean Sprouts with Firm Tofu Recipe: Budget Meal Idea

The husband and I love bean sprouts because of its light and crunchy texture.

I try to pair bean sprouts with different ingredients for variety. If you like […]

Kai Lan with Enoki Mushrooms Recipe

I realise I don’t have many veggie dishes in my recipe book even though I’d always cook up greens for dinner. Probably because the cooking styles are more or less the same by using fish sauce, oyster sauce or both and I’m used to plain vegetables with just a little light soy sauce anyway which […]

Gado Gado Recipe

I remembered there was a time when I was in Primary 4 when the form teacher mentioned that tempeh (fermented soy beans) has high nutritional value but my classmates weren’t sure of what tempeh was except me because it was an ingredient that my Granny loved to cook with and I grew up eating. I […]
