Curtido

Today’s recipe is called Curtido which is a dish I had never heard of. It is Salvadorian coleslaw that can sit in the fridge for a couple of weeks and begin to ferment, similarly to kimchi. There are not too many ingredients required, simply just cabbage, carrot, onion, jalapeno, oregano, salt, vinegar and water. Essentially…

Brussels Sprout Hash

I’ve never bought Brussels sprouts before because they just seem extra hard to clean well. They also seem to have quite a bad reputation for some reason. I love cabbage so I don’t know why I never made the leap to these babies. Anyways, I’m giving them a shot today with this Brussels Sprout Hash…

Recipe #62: Colourful Weeknight Burrito Bowls

Yesterday’s chai latte (link here) may not have been the biggest success for me, but this burrito bowl was another story.

Asian Tofu and Cabbage Bowl

When I started making dishes with cold tofu, I was pretty much doing it because I didn’t want to cook anything. But now, I’m doing it because I really like how it tastes. So today, for my bowl, I started with some shredded cabbage and almost made an asianΒ hoisin coleslaw with it. I made a…

Coleslaw with Avocado Dressing

I saw on TV someone making an avocado crema and I thought that would be a good basis for a coleslaw dressing – and I was right! All it had in it was avocado, a bit of sour cream, lemon juice, pinch of sugar, salt and pepper. It was a little thick, so I should’ve…
