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…

Happy Birthday To Me!

Over the past few years, I’ve really enjoyed making my own birthday cake. This is what I made last year – link here. So I wanted to keep that tradition alive and this year, I made a strawberry shortcake. I found a vanilla cake recipe online from Liv For Cake blog (recipe here). It was…

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

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…

Basil Pesto Summer Pasta Salad

The first day of summer is tomorrow so the timing of this pasta salad is perfect. Pasta salad in general is just one of those classic summer dishes. It is so great for BBQs or even just weekly meal prep. This recipe specifically though, is so packed with goodness. There are lots of fresh and…

Orange Peel Cauliflower

I was very excited about this recipe. You know I love battered and baked cauliflower. I’ve made different variations countless times (Buffalo Cauliflower, Maple & Sriracha Cauliflower, General Tso Cauliflower). All of those recipes were so delicious and you should definitely check those out! But today’s cauliflower is coated in a sweet and sticky orange…
