Vegetable Spring Rolls

This is the first opportunity that I have had to catch up on my blogging recently! I am so sorry for being so quiet! I have had a pretty jam-packed, amazing, crazy month visiting my relatives in Asia. I will be sharing several travel related posts over the next few weeks! As you know, I love travelling – I love immersing myself in the culture of other countries. I also love getting new cooking inspiration! This trip I was lucky to visit not only Malaysia but also Thailand. This recipe is inspired by the delicious street food that we tried in Bangkok.

Miso Glazed Aubergine

Aubergines are one of my favourite vegetables. They are a great choice for vegetarians, as they soak up any flavour or spice that you add to them. I normally use them in my Italian-inspired Aubergine Parmigiana. But this time I wanted to try something different. When I was a meat-eater, I used to enjoy miso-glazed salmon, super healthy and full of flavour. It was one of my favourite dishes, and so naturally I wanted to find a vegetarian friendly version! Enter the humble aubergine…

Healthy Fried Rice

There are some recipes in life that are simple, require little work or ingredients and are yet immensely rewarding. This fried rice recipe is one of them – at least for me! This is my go-to dish if I am cooking supper for one. It is a great way to use up left-over vegetables and left-over cooked rice.

Steamed Seitan & Mushroom Bao

So when most people are hung over – they crave a fry up. But not me. No. When I am hung over, which rarely happens – but when it does the world basically ends, I crave fluffy, steamed Chinese buns. These dumplings are also known as bao. In Malaysia we call them pao. I love them. They can come with sweet or savoury fillings. And they taste DELICIOUS.

Nourishing Noodle Soup

Before I became vegetarian, I used to cook a delicious chicken noodle soup. When I gave up meat, I didn’t want to lose out on this amazing soup. I figured that there were plenty of delicious ingredients that I could use to substitute the meaty flavour of chicken. So I set to work experimenting – and you know what, I actually prefer the veggie version of this soup! Seriously, you can taste the incredible network of flavours more without the chicken overpowering your palate. I think one of the key ingredients in this is the mushrooms. I love mushrooms, they are fantastic substitutions for meat. Especially the portobello mushrooms, they just have this incredible, savoury flavour that makes this dish come alive!

Malaysian laksa with baked tofu

OK so I am kind of shocked that it has taken me so long to post an Asian inspired recipe. Especially considering that I am half Malaysian and I make a lot of Asian food. Like a lot a lot. But you know what they say – better late than never!
