Crispy V-Chicken Katsu

I loved this vegan chicken recipe so much. You don’t need any crazy ingredients, and the whole preparation and cooking process is so easy and quick. Remember I made fried chicken with this? This time I decided to turn the chicken into Panko crusted Katsu. Crispy outside and juicy inside. Come back to see how […]

Sake-Kasu Sticks

Sake-kasu is the solid left from the sake production. It has the miso like paste texture and very unique flavor. It’s been traditionally used to flavor fish, soup, and pickled vegetables for many years. But it has become so much more in the recent years, and it’s now used to flavor many baked goods as […]

“Steak” Tacos with Cherry Salsa

The inspiration came from the sweet cherries I had in my fridge. This salsa (or pico de gallo) was fruity and super refreshing! Cherry salsa: cherries, tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno peppers (pickled), cilantro, salt I also made spicy Yuzu sauce. This was not my initial plan, but at the last minute I decided that I […]

Olive Sun-Dried Tomato Herbed Cookies

I like rules, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I am a rule-follower in general. I read furniture assembly instructions. The best part of learning a new language for me is learning the grammar. However, when it comes to cooking and baking, I am everything but a rule-follower! I hate following recipes, and I’m […]

V-Steak Street Tacos with Pineapple Pico de Gallo

Don’t get me wrong. I love sauce, probably more than most people, and I tend to drench food in sauce. But I think it’s important not to do that sometimes, to really enjoy the flavor from each ingredient. Fresh and delicious!

Shiso Broccoli Omelette Fritters

I had a lot of cooked broccoli and wanted to use it for my breakfast. What I ended up with were these omelette fritters. Love that there are a lot of chunks of broccoli and it’s flavored with Japanese Shiso basil. I used chickpea flour instead of regular flour, so, the final result was more […]

Dip Trio

It’s always nice that your snack is not only delicious but also healthy and colorful. I got fresh veggies ready. And ready to dip! Cheddar. Edamame Mint. Maple Purple Potato. Yum!

Vegan Swiss Cheese

The recipe is from this book. I always liked Swiss cheese. So when I found the vegan recipe, I had to try it. I should say I was actually attracted to the authentic look, with holes! The holes were optional, but of course I had to make mine just like the one in the book. […]
