    San Choy Bau (Pork & Veggies in Lettuce Cups)

    The other day, I was requested to post my ‘San Choy Bau’ recipe on my website. I had shared my Vegan version, but I hadn’t shared my favourite Pork Mince version. So, here is my ‘San Choy Bau’. Iceberg Lettuce is popularly used for this dish, but it can be tricky to make cups. I …

  • Egg Pork

    Pork & Egg with Sweet & Sour Sauce

    This dish is a Pork version of my ‘Omelette with Sweet & Sour Sauce’, but it is even easier to prepare because you won’t cook Omelette.

  • Bread Dough Vegetables

    Vegan Nikuman (Soy Protein Buns)

    My daughter asked me to make a Vegetarian version of Nikuman (Steamed Pork Buns). I challenged myself to make a Vegan version using Soy Protein. These buns are delicious, and even my meat-loving husband enjoyed them. You can find very reasonably priced Dry Soy Protein products at many Asian grocery stores. Supermarkets sell them, too. …

  • Beef Chicken Pork Vegetables

    Korean Inspired Stir-fry

    I named this stir-fry dish ‘Korean Inspired Stir-fry’ because I used Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso), however you can use your favourite Chilli Sauce instead.

  • Udon

    Miso Udon Soup

    ‘Hōtō’ Noodle Miso Soup is one of my favourite Noodle dishes. It requires quite an effort for me to cook it as I always make ‘Hōtō’ Noodles from scratch. This dish is very similar to ‘Hōtō’ but much easier to prepare. This recipe is for 1 serving, but it is easy to increase. Just cook …

  • Mushrooms Tofu & Soy Protein

    Hot Tofu with Mushroom Sauce

    This healthy and comforting dish is perfect for dinner on a cold day. It can be Vegan. Today I used Chicken Stock, but you can use plant-based stock. Use extra Soy Sauce instead of Oyster Sauce. You would need to add some Mirin or Sugar to add sweetness to the flavour. Hard Tofu is NOT …

  • Halloween

    Halloween Zombie Bento

    In the Halloween season last year, I made ‘Zombie Cookies’. It was great fun making those Zombie faces with cookie dough. This year, I decided to make Zombie Bento (a packed lunch). This Bento has been inspired by Chicken Soboro Don. I used Beef Mince instead of Chicken Mince, but you can use other Minced …

    Scrumptious Shiitake

    When Shiitake Mushrooms are in season, I always become nostalgic and think about my grandmother. She used to grow Shiitake in the woods near her house and my family was lucky to enjoy the harvest. Her Shiitake were meaty and chewy and crunchy and delicious. This is another way to enjoy the meaty Shiitake. It’s …

    I have shared my recipe ‘Monk’s Vegan Soup’ that is called ‘Kenchin-jiru’ in Japan. ‘Kenchin-jiru’ is 100% plant-based soup. It is full of flavours as a variety of ingredients are added. This is a ‘Kenchin-jiru’ inspired rice bowl dish. Please use many different Vegetables and Asian Mushrooms, and Abura-age (Fried Thin Tofu) is essential for …

  • Pork Ramen

    Crispy Instant Ramen with Stir-fry

    I want to share another way you can cook an Instant ‘Soy Sauce’ Ramen. An extra effort is required, but it is worth it. Crispy Noodles with Stir-fry is my favourite dish and this is an attempt to create it using an Instant Ramen. If you are served this dish at a casual eatery, you …

    Chicken Nabe (Hot Pot)

    ‘Nabe’ (Hot Pot) dish is great for entertaining your friends and family, but it is also great for everyday dinner as it is easy to prepare.
