Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice)

I really, really love Southeast Asia. I’ve been to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and would happily go back, preferably for an extended period of time. I still haven’t been to Indonesia, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to explore some of their food. I looked [...]

Barbecue Tempeh with Spicy Coleslaw

I was going to post a brownie recipe today but this was WAY to good to keep from you. I happened to pick up Vegan Soul Kitchen at a used book store and how anyone let this book out of their hands is beyond me. I’m in love and [...]

Gado Gado (Indonesian Rice Salad)

I know spring has really started when my allergies go crazy, and this week, the fun began. I never had any allergy issues until I moved here, but now they show up right around my birthday every year, giving me really attractive red eyes and an awesome nasal-y voice. [...]

Hearty Cabbage Soup

I was mentally writing this blog post as I pureed this soup. I considered writing about how this is perfect for those chilly winter nights when it’s hard to warm up after shoveling snow all day, or how an icy breeze cuts through all the layers you pile on [...]

White Bean Soup with Ham

This soup all started with the biggest white beans I’ve ever seen in my life. After doing some internet research, I don’t think they’re as big as the ones they eat in Greece, but they’re about an inch long before they’re cooked and, since I’d never seen dried beans [...]

Jijimi (Korean Vegetable Pancakes)

When I thought about moving to Korea, I imagined that I would become an expert on cooking Korean food. I knew I’d have a kitchen and full access to all the ingredients I might need to make just about any Korean dish I wanted. I didn’t really think about [...]

Ginger Pork Cabbage Wraps

My husband came home from the store the other day with the largest head of cabbage I think I’ve ever seen. It’s pumpkin shaped, and barely fits into the produce drawer in the refrigerator. Cabbage is one of his favorite vegetables, so this was a big score for him… [...]

Classic Coleslaw

Just a basic but delicious coleslaw. I love it on pulled pork sandwiches, alongside a variety of different main dishes, and as an afternoon snack. The sweetened onions and vinegar give it an extra burst of flavor, while the mayo keeps it creamy. 1/2 cup finely chopped onion1/4 cup sugar4 [...]

Asian Slaw Salad

A beautifully simple recipe for a mild but wonderful twist on traditional coleslaw. I made it using just cabbage, but for variety, you could throw in bean sprouts, ┬ájulienned carrots and celery, some peanuts or sesame seeds, a squeeze of lime… Be creative! Then tell me how creative you [...]
