Steamed Pak Choi w/ Asian Spices

Pak Choi is a traditional Asian ingredient. The tender dark leafy green and crispy white stalk comes from the cabbage family and is great as a side dish when serving an Asian style meal. It’s also highly nutritious, packed with fiber and vitamins. I personally can enjoy this vegetable on its own with a bowl of rice – it’s that good! Hope I can persuade you too ;-)

Vegan “Steak”

I’ve never had steak in my life. So, when I decided to make myself a Puerto Rican Jibarito sandwich during the meat free week, I wanted to recreate a “steak” with soy cubes and black beans that I’d lingering in my pantry. Now, I know this not the real deal, but I must say this vegan or mock steak turned out amazing! With the right seasoning and texture this is a great substitute. Plus, this Vegan “Steak” can be used as burger or as meatballs too!

Tteokkochi w/ Chicken Sausage & Spring Onion

If there’s one cuisine that has influenced me since 2020, it’s the Korean kitchen! The food, the people, the culture - I’m in love and intrigued! I can’t wait to travel again and visit this beautiful country, eat all the delicious food and explore their culture. This Tteokkochi (Rice Sticks) w/ Chicken Sausages and Spring Onion is an homage to another Korean treasure and a new favorite of mine. It’s made with chewy and crispy rice cakes/sticks, chicken sausages and spring onions. After they are lightly fried in a pan, they get a generous coating of the spicy and sweet Korean sauce. This Tteokkochi is heaven on a stick!
