Pumpkin Barley Risotto Recipe (Vegetarian)

When I first started adding barley into my stews to act as a thickener (see my Beef and Carrot Stew Recipe), I realise how versatile barley can be in both sweet (makes a lovely accompaniment to green bean soup!) and savoury dishes. Barley is low in GI and can be a great, healthy substitute to […]

Baked Ratatouille Recipe

Whenever I see the word ‘ratatouille’ (pronounced ‘ra-ta-too-ee’), I will be reminded of Pixar’s animated film of the same name. That, by the way, is quite an entertaining film as it depicts the story of a rat named Remy who dreams to become a chef. ๐Ÿ™‚ A ratatouille is actually a French stewed vegetable dish […]

Kung Pao Tofu Recipe (Vegetarian)

Kung Pao Chicken. Kung Pao Pork. Kung Pao Prawns. I just love ’em all. I think the kung pao sauce is simply one of the best in Chinese cuisine, imo. It’s spicy, sweet, savoury and nutty – sure to reignite the tastebuds and leave us wanting more. I decided to try something new this time. […]

Tomato Based Vegetable Curry Recipe (Vegan)

This is probably the most unconventionaI but also easiest method to whip up a quick and healthy vegetable curry by using tomatoes as the base. I made a herbed quinoa (just mix cooked quinoa with chopped coriander and spring onions with a squeeze of lemon juice) to go with the vegetable curry and also oven-grilled […]

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. Use it in stir fries or grill them on a griddle pan – yummy! I’ve been buying these lovely […]

Oven Baked Falafel Recipe

I’dย been thinking ofย making falafels at home for quite some time but I found it a hassle to deep fry them (well, besides being heaty) when I only needed a quick (hopefully healthy) bite as a snack. So yes, oven baking was the only way out. I added panko to the chickpeas to bulk them up […]

Sweet & Spicy Tempeh & Tofu Stir Fry Recipe

Inspired by one of my favourite dishes, Sambal Goreng (fried tempeh, firm tofu & long beans in a spicy sambal paste) which we can always get from any nasi padang stall. Instead of using long beans, I substituted with broccoli florets instead and added an extra touch of kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and sweet […]

Tempeh, Tofu & Avocado Salad Recipe

This is another rendition of my Egg, Bacon & Avocado Salad Recipeย that I just made up on the spot the other day for lunch after I came back from gym. While I decided to keep the hard-boiled egg in this, I substituted the bacon with firm tofu and tempeh (fermented soybeans) hence making this a […]
