Spaghetti with Peas and Zucchini Ribbons

Posted in Italian, Noodle and Pasta, Quick and Easy, Vegetarian | 1 Comment »

Found this recipe in this month’s Martha Steward Living magazine, It’s quite interesting as it uses neither garlic/onion nor olive oil and uses plain yogurt for the sauce instead. As we’re lazy to go out in the rainy afternoon, I cooked this for dinner. The result is a light pasta dish, not as savory as when I use onion with bacon, but it was satisfying. :)

Braised tofu with spinach and mushrooms

Posted in Chinese, Vegetarian | 5 Comments »
I first saw this dish at Cilantro restaurant years ago. They named it tahu nenek moyang. It was delicious and quite pricey. Since then I began looking for this kind of dish whenever we went to Chinese restaurants. There are many variations for the name, some restaurants even called this dish ‘XXX restaurant tofu special’. One day, when I dined with SC parents, I asked her mother about the recipe and I promised myself that I’m going to make it some day.
This is supposed to be my weekend project, but I was too lazy to cook last (long) weekend. As I was afraid that the ingredients might gone bad, I tried to make it this morning before going for work. Turned out, it required about 45 minutes to cook. As I ‘m running very late for work, I left all the dirty dishes to SC. I hope he finds the taste well worth the effort :)

Broccoli & Cauliflower Soup

Posted in Quick and Easy, Soups, Vegetarian | No Comments »
I found this recipe last year when I was gawking at tastespotting.com, The recipe is very easy and seems to be light as it’s a vegetable-based soup that doesn’t require any cream/milk in it. I decided to try this soup and I like it so much that I always cook this from time to time. Sometimes, I add some potato or peas in the soup :)

Bittergourd Omelette

Posted in Chinese, Quick and Easy, Vegetarian | No Comments »
This is one of the dishes I cook on a weekly basis. It’s fast and easy, plus I love bittergourd. Most people don’t like bittergourd because of its bitterness, but my mom told me that if I removed the seeds and rubbed the bittergourd with salt, it will be less bitter. Sometimes I managed to shaped it into an omelette, but sometimes I just scrambled it :)

Mild Potato Curry with Yogurt

Posted in Indian, Vegetarian | 2 Comments »
I really love Indian food, so whenever I have time, I will cook Indian dishes. The problem is that some Indian foods are quite hot and spicy, which is not something SC can eat. So I’m really glad when I found this mild potato curry recipe that is not too hot and spicy. I got the recipe from the Authentic Recipe from Singapore cookbook and I modified it a bit by adding some ricotta cheese. I just had too get rid of the cheese from my fridge. :)

Potato & Carrot Rice

Yesterday, SC informed me that we still have some carrots left in the fridge. I usually make potato & carrot soup with it, but I want to try something different. So I browsed my Indian cookbook: “Indian Rice and Breads” and found a recipe for potato rice. I modified it by adding shredded carrot :)

Fried Beehoon with Mushrooms and Vegetables

Posted in Chinese, Noodle and Pasta, Vegetarian | 2 Comments »
I saw this recipe at Authentic Recipes from Singapore cookbook I got from Periplus discount yesterday. At first, I thought this is just another simple recipe, so I decided to try it for tonight’s dinner. Turned out the preparation took about 30 minutes and there’s so much step to do before you actually stir fry the beehoon. But SC said the result was quite delicious although it was a bit less salty. Well, at least it was worth the effort :)
