One of the many reasons I love Asian food is how ingredients are treated with utmost respect. Most of the flavour comes from the ingredients themselves and they haven’t been “messed” with too much. It’s almost like the least cooking of the raw ingredients the […]

The Best Ever Asian Slaw

The Best Ever Asian Slaw

I am obsessed with this salad! Warmer days mean eating salad 24/7. I prefer making salad to cooking veggies, not sure if it’s a texture thing but I love love love a fresh, crunchy salad. This is as fresh and crunchy as they come. What’s […]

Pineapple Curry Fried Rice

Pineapple Curry Fried Rice

I saw this on an episode on Binging with Babish on Youtube, it sounded delicious but too much work, hence my simplified version. Hubby said it was delicious THREE times while we were eating so I must have done something right. Ingredients: 1 cup Jasmine […]

Cold Vietnamese Noodle Salad

Cold Vietnamese Noodle Salad

It was so hot in Cape Town that I didn’t feel like eating food or meat. I wanted something light that was still tasty and had all those umami flavors. This is Vietnamese inspired, as I wanted to make a more traditional dressing but did […]

Chicken Chow Mein

Chicken Chow Mein

I made these noodles two weeks ago. To be honest, I didn’t know what it was going to be when I started cooking. We had gone out and got home quite late and I ended up cooking in a rush which resulted in me taking […]

Korean BBQ Chicken Wings

Korean BBQ Chicken Wings

Asian food is one of my favorite cuisines (besides Italian and Indian). The simple combination of sesame oil, soya sauce, rice vinegar and chili hits all the right spots. I didn’t have “Gochujang”, a common Korean ingredient of red pepper paste (chili paste would be […]
