Sticky Tofu with Sweet Sesame Sauce

It’s a new week but I’m starting it the same way I started last week – with a tofu recipe! I wouldn’t normally eat this much tofu in such a short time span but that’s because I am cooking through a cookbook and these recipes just come one after another. It’s a good thing I…

Jackfruit Pupusas

I have made it to the third and final jackfruit recipe in the Brave New Meal cookbook. If you missed the others, they were Pomegranate Cola Jackfruit and Teriyaki Jackfruit. Pupusas are a dish traditionally from El Salvador and Honduras. The filling is usually bean or meat-based and it’s inside a corn masa dough and…

Grilled Nectarine Soba Noodles

This recipe is a really nice take on a summery pasta salad. This one has sort of a Asian spin on it with soba noodles and the dressing but it was very fresh. The grilled nectarines are such a great touch too because they are just coming in season now and grilling the fruit brings…

Ginger Turmeric Tofu

Happy Monday! I hope you saw my last post because it was a good one. I made myself a birthday cake and I love how it turned out! Check it out here – My Birthday Cake. Today’s post, I am back on track with Brave New Meal cookbook recipes. This is a tofu recipe that…

Lemongrass Baked Tofu

We all know how versatile tofu can be. It soaks up any combination of flavours and you can cook it countless ways. This recipe’s preparation is pretty basic and you can use the technique and then change the flavours to be whatever you would like. The basic preparation is pressing the tofu to remove as…

Pomegranate Cola Jackfruit

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends! I just celebrated July 1st on Friday so I took the day off from posting to just enjoy the time with my family. In my previous jackfruit post (Teriyaki Jackfruit), I mentioned that this pulled jackfruit recipe was coming up. I feel like this type of…

Baked Eggplant Rice

Here we are with another eggplant recipe. The last one I made from the Brave New Meal cookbook was the Baba Ganoush which I surprisingly didn’t hate (I know, such high praise). Today’s recipe is a rice dish with eggplant, as well as tomato, onion and some seasonings. The reason I was fine making this…

Teriyaki Jackfruit w/ Curry Udon Noodles

As you can see from the title of this post, there are two components to today’s recipe: teriyaki jackfruit and curry udon noodles. Let’s start with the jackfruit because that was the new ingredient for me. I have seen lots of recipes online using jackfruit because of how versatile it is in cooking. The main…

Caramelized Fennel Tart

Going into this recipe, I wasn’t totally sure how I was feeling about it. On one hand, I love puff pastry and everything that I’ve made with it – both sweet and savoury. Some of my faves are: Cheese & Onion Pinwheeels and Pigs in a Blanket. But on the other hand, I don’t love…

Nashville Hot Shroom Sammie

So my last post, the pesto pasta salad (link here) was a perfect recipe for a hot summer day. Today’s recipe however, is definitely one for hot food lovers. This is supposed to be a Nashville hot shroom sammie, as in mushroom, but I had to make some adjustments because I am not a fungus…
