Potato Chickpea Curry with Roti

I like Indian food, especially curry. If I had to choose one country’s food to eat for the rest of my life (besides Japan’s), it may have to be Indian food. This smells so good. So does the whole kitchen! Actually, the main reason I made curry was I needed something that would go well […]

Chili and Chips

Chili and Chips! First, chili. I used my homemade vegan meatballs. They were roughly crumbled and they kept their texture in chili really well. Potatoes are not probably the typical thing that accompanies chili, but why not?! I oven-baked them, and they turned out delicious!! I probably like these more than fried ones. I like […]

Thanksgiving 2018

This was our second year plant-based Thanksgiving. I got a little help from The Herbivous Butcher. Guess what we got? Turducken! I got my collection of vintage (and not so vintage) plates out. It turned out great! Menu: Turducken from The Herbivous Butcher Cornbread with V butter Braised Kale and Lentils Spiced Maple Butternut Squash […]

Swedish V-Meatballs

Every time I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, he always says “Swedish meatballs.” I knew how much he loves the dish, so it was hard to say “No I can’t make it”. But for the longest time I didn’t think it would be possible to make plant-based Swedish meatballs. But this recipe […]

“East Meet Midwest” Okonomi-Yaki

Okonomi-Yaki is a popular savory pancake in Japan. The most used ingredient is cabbage. Other than that you can basically add anything, but the popular ones are pork and squid. This time king mushroom (cooked with garlic), purple cabbage, and chive went into my Okonomi-Yaki batter. You mix them well. Typically you can start cooking […]

Purple Potato Mini Tarts

Purple potato has quickly become one of my favorite potatoes. Last time I got my purple potatoes at Whole Foods, but this time I got mine at a local Asian grocery store. The skin color was a bit paler than the previous one, but when cooked it tasted just the same. As I talked about […]

New Kid In Town! Roasted Purple Potato

I talked about my favorite potato, Satsuma-Imo, in this post. But now there is a new kid in town! I should probably say it’s new to me, because apparently the purple potatoes have been around for many years. I don’t know why it took me so long to finally try this beautiful plant. I got […]

Mmmmm… Roasted Satsuma-Imo

Although Japanese cuisine has become pretty popular around the world, there are still so many amazing Japanese foods people are missing out on. One of them is Satsuma-Imo, or Japanese sweet potato. Yes, it’s a personal opinion, but a lot of people who did try it, including my husband, as well as many Japanese people […]

Comin’ Home Baby Cottage Pie

Cottage pie has the word, “homey”, all over the dish. I’m not English, but I love cottage pie because of it’s the kind of dish I would love to come home for after a long day. The stew inside has lots of things I love, like lentils, cauliflower, and carrots. They were all cooked together […]
