Miso Cabbage Slaw

Happy Monday! I hope everyone is ready for a great week ahead. For me, the cold winter weather can be very gloomy and unmotivating but a good meal with bright flavors can really help combat that. And that’s what I’m sharing with you today. Today’s post is the Miso Cabbage Slaw from the cookbook Thug…

Sweet & Spicy Cold Tofu

I eat tofu probably once a week and I’m always looking for different ways to prepare it. Most of the time I will either saute or bake it. But today, I wasn’t in the mood for much cooking, so I made this delicious Sweet & Spicy Cold Tofu. When cooking with tofu, I prefer the…

Chicken Lettuce Cups

Have you ever had lettuce cups? They’re a cute and fun way to hold delicious fillings. I first saw them made with a Chinese ground meat filling but you could use any variety of ingredients and flavours. One good option would be Mexican-inspired with taco seasoning and then tomato and avocado as garnish. My lettuce…

Viral Salmon & Rice

I know you’ve probably seen that viral salmon and rice recipe online. It all started from a girl named Emily Mariko, who posted it on Tiktok and since then, it seems that everyone has been making it. And now it was my turn! I had to put my own twist on the recipe though. I…

Leek & Barley Fried Rice

Happy May! If you’ve subscribed to my email newsletters, you should have received the May edition this morning. I hope you enjoyed the content and recipes I included in this one! I can’t believe it’s already May though – the year is seriously flying! It’s Monday so I am back with another Thug Kitchen 101…

Sticky Garlic Chicken

I love takeout chinese food. One of my favourite dishes is honey-garlic chicken because it’s a little crispy but soft inside and it’s coated in delicious sweet and sticky sauce. I just adore it. One thing I don’t like as much though, is that most of the dishes are battered and fried, making them a…

Asian Salmon in Foil

After the last couple weeks of fall apple and pumpkin ingredients, I am back to posting regular yummy foods, like baked salmon! The last time I posted about salmon was way back in June, with the Maple Dijon Salmon (link here), so I am due for another recipe sharing. Today I made Asian Salmon in…

Cashew Chicken Stirfry

To me, cashew chicken always seemed like a dish not worth getting from a restaurant. Since it’s pretty much just a stirfry, I felt like I could easily make it myself so it would make more sense for me to get something different (ie. more difficult to make) instead. I don’t know if that makes…

Korean Beef Bowl

You already know how much I love Chinese and Korean flavours when I cook. I probably eat something in those cuisines at least once a week. This korean beef bowl is one of my faves. The original recipe is from Damn Delicious (recipe link) and it is so tasty. I have made the recipe as…

Sesame Noodle Salad

Since I don’t have A/C at my home, using the oven really makes things hot. So in the summer, I try to eat a lot of refreshing and cool foods, that don’t require a lot of cooking. I made these noodle bowls the other day and they were delicious. I had a picnic with a…
