    Pan-fried Cheesy Asparagus

    Many people cook this dish in the oven, but I don’t want to heat up the oven just to make this dish. Pan-frying is more energy-efficient. The top of the cheese won’t get browned when cooked in a frying pan, but the bottom gets browned. For an everyday meal, this is good enough for me. …

    Fennel & Bocconcini Salad

    Aromatic Fennel is best to eat raw. Its anise-like flavour is so good with slightly sweet citrus-base dressing. I often use Orange, but I used Lemon today.

    Miso & Mozzarella Baked Eggplant

    It seems many people were surprised to see my ‘Miso & Mozzarella Baked Tofu’ as they never thought of mixing Miso and Mozzarella. My husband prefers Eggplant version to Tofu version. I cooked Eggplant in the same way, but it didn’t work. To make the Eggplant meltingly soft, you need to lower the oven temperature …
