    Creamy Anchovy Garlic Sauce

    ‘Bagna Càuda’ inspired me to make this sauce. I love Anchovy & Garlic flavour of ‘Bagna Càuda’ but I don’t want to eat too much Oil. Based on my ‘Super Easy White Sauce (Béchamel Sauce)’, I used Olive Oil instead of Butter, and added Anchovy & Garlic. This sauce is so good with steamed Vegetables, …

    When I had just 1 Jalapeño and didn’t know what to use it for, I chopped it up and added to my Miso Sauce. I decided to use the Miso Sauce for cucumber salad, so I added Vinegar and some Peanuts. A little bit of Garlic as well. Then I added Pickled Jalapeño. The Miso …

    My Peanut Sauce

    On the other day, at my friend’s house, I tasted ‘Roti’ bread with peanut sauce for the very first time in my life. It was a takeaway food from a local Thai restaurant. I instantly fell in love with ‘Roti’ and the sauce, but again I found the sauce too sweet for me. So I …

    Edamame & Watercress Dip

    I have introduced my ‘Edamame & Cream Cheese Dip’ and ‘Edamame & Avocado Dip’ recipes on this website. Those dips are delicious but I always thought something tangy would be nice in Edamame Dip. On the other day, when I was washing Watercress for salad, I thought the very peppery flavour of Watercress, which I …

    Edible Chrysanthemum Pesto

    Basil Pesto is so popular and we can buy it from any supermarket stores these days. I love Basil Pesto, but some people, like my parents who are old and not familiar with Mediterranean herbs, find it too overwhelming. Pesto is easy to make at home. By replacing Basil with other herbs or herby veggies, …

    Basil Hummus

    I loved the basil hummus that I found on Cookpad. The basil flavoured hummus suits my taste better than classic hummus, but it was a little too heavy for me. So I am now writing the altered recipe for myself. You can find the original recipe here. Ingredients 1 can (400 g) Chickpeas *drained and …

    Basil & Pine Nuts Miso Pesto

    If you can’t have any ingredients, use alternatives! That’s how I have been inventing new food. When I tried to make ‘Shiso’ flavoured miso paste and couldn’t find it, I used fresh Basil leaves. Thinking of ‘Pesto Genovese’, I used Pine Nuts instead of Walnuts. OMG!!! Miso, Basil and Pine Nuts created a new flavour. …

    Spinach Dip

    Dips are very popular in Melbourne. I see a huge variety of dips in supermarkets. One day I bought Spinach Dip, which was OK but not great. I bought a different brand’s one. It was not good at all. ‘The spinach and ricotta mixture that I make for cannelloni dish tastes much better than those …

    Guacamole

    This is one of my favourite dips and bread spreads. It is so tasty and refreshing. ‘Guacamole’ is traditionally made by mashing Avocado(s) and Salt, but you can find so many different recipes these days. Many of them require Coriander, which my husband and son hate. They are genetic Coriander haters. They just can’t identify …
