Omelette Waffles

Making omelet in a waffle maker!

When I saw my Instagram friend’s story yesterday, I wanted to try it myself, in a vegan version.

Homemade vegan steak.

I cut it into small pieces and sautéed.

Hash browns.

Both go on the waffle maker.

And then “egg” mixture (tofu, turmeric, cumin, sugar, salt, pepper, nutritional yeast, garbanzo flour, soy milk, water).

Perfectly cooked!

So crispy.

Can you see the bits of “meat” and potatoes?

Served with fresh spinach-arugula leaves, spicy mayo, and balsamic glaze.


If I ever opened a restaurant, this would be on the menu (lol).

Cinnamon Rice Bread

Rice bread with cinnamon.

Smells so good.

Sunshine Rice Bread

Here is an arranged version of the rice bread.

I added one of my favorite spices, turmeric.

This bright yellow color is exactly what I wanted.

This rice bread is so soft and moist, and we absolutely love it.

It has become a staple at our house.

I had a little extra dough, and I baked it in a small indivisual dish.

V-Chicken Katsu Curry

When I switched to the plant-based diet, I didn’t think there would be a day I could eat Katsu curry.

Why I made this “chicken” Katsu?

Well, it is because I wanted to eat Katsu curry.

Thick Japanese curry and rice.

I like my curry and rice served with a little pickles.

Super happy with the result!!

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 I enjoyed this Katsu.

Weekend Breakfast

Good morning.

I was not at the best condition yesterday, but today I’m feeling so much better and I’m ready to spend more time in the kitchen today.

I don’t know why I felt the way I did yesterday.

Maybe it was the stress related to all that is happening right now.

But I try to focus on what I have control over.

What we eat is definitely something we have control over.

I wanted to make a nutritious meal for breakfast.

Fried rice, scrambled tofu, sautéed asparagus, spinach-arugula salad, grapes, and a cup of coffee.

I’m not a big fan of canned vegetables, but there are some jarred vegetables I like.

Mostly picked stuff, like beets, olives, and a mix of various vegetables, like this one.

They are handy when I want some vegetables on my plate quick.

Natto Green Chile Soba

I usually have a lot of energy on weekends (lol).

It takes me forever to get out of bed usually, but I’m wide awake at 5:00 a.m. when I don’t go to the office.

But today my energy was a bit low, and I was kind of lazy.

A good thing is that I never lose appetite even on a day like this.

I was in a mood for soba soup for lunch.

So, this is what I ended up with.

Soba noodles, Kombu-soy sauce based soup, Natto, and green chile.

Yes, the green chile is an outsider here, but I really enjoyed the fresh spiciness in the soup.

Rice Gateau au Chocolat

Another fun recipe from Ms. Shiori.

Isn’t this cake beautiful?

Who knew, the major ingredient of this cake is rice, not rice “flour.”

It was not too heavy and not too light.

And perfectly moist.

I enjoyed it with whipped coconut cream.


Shungiku Caesar Salad with Vegan Fried Chicken

It’s always fun to try a new recipe.

I’ve been making various vegan meats for a while now, but it still amazes me that you can “make meat” that is plant-based and tasty.

When I saw this post, I immediately got interested.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have all the ingredients needed, so I had to use some substitutes, but mine still turned out great!

The above picture is the vegan fried chicken I made with the “chicken.”

The texture of this “chicken” is so tender and I absolutely loved it.

I served the fried “chicken” over Shungiku Caesar salad.

This was so tasty!!

Breakfast Sandwich

Colorful meals are always a good idea.

But particularly for breakfast.

Homemade vegan steak.

Toasted homemade Shokupan Pullman bread, homemade vegan mayo, homemade vegan steak, scrambled tofu, tomato slices, and arugula.
