Naked Roast Kabocha

This recipe is so simple that it didn’t even really need to be created… but I wanted to share this anyways, because it’s actually one of my favourite ways to enjoy kabocha, and it’s just so easy!!

And okay, it’s not completely naked, because I do like to sprinkle a bit of lime or lemon juice and some sea salt on top, but I’m calling it naked because its roasted sans oil. Yep- no spray, no nothing, and it’s still delicious! Of course you can add oil, but I prefer to eat it like this.

And because of my super exciting gmarket find, this recipe is super fast now that I can buy  cubed, frozen kabocha.. hee hee..

Unbelievable Pillowy Egg “Bread”

Bread is a treat that I generally do not include in my diet. It was never allowed on my plan during my competition training, and so it’s not something I’ve really reincorporated into my life. Don’t get me wrong- I think bread is incredibly delicious! But here, in Korea, they don’t even have the bread I would choose anyways. Korean bread is all that white, sweet, processed, insulin-spiking stuff. Not something I want.

Enter my egg bread.

Dreamy Vanilla Cupcakes with Lemon Icing

I too have succumbed to the pixie-dream-girl contagion. Not only did I buy the cutest pink and blue apron, but I spent all Saturday morning baking cupcakes with my girlfriend. The benefit to you being this magically fluffy sweet lemon cupcake which will distract you from the cold bite of winter by reviving those flavours of spring.

Fish and Coconut Cream Soup

I love soup.. especially anything with a coconut base!

And now that the weather is chillier, I find myself seeking out warmer meals.

Vexican Mac & Cheese (aka: Empowerment Pasta)

Vexican= Vegan Mexican in case you didn't catch that.... :)

It was just your standard dinner....
Or so I thought.

I took left overs with me for lunch the other day, and a few students came over to see what I was eating. I simply told them "pasta". One asked if she could have a bite. I thought she would hate it, its full of beans, zucchini, cilantro, peppers, and a bunch of mexican spices that Koreans never eat- ESPECIALLY Korean children. But, I gave her a bite anyway.

Then she yelled "Oh yummyyyyyyy, one more time!!!"

Needless to say, I was immediately surrounded with a swarm of 4 year olds wanting to try it. So, I let them try.... they too LOVED IT!!! They kept begging me for bites and when I told them I needed to eat the rest because, after all,


this is what happened.......

Green {Vegan} Saag Recipe

Fight your flu this fall with this warm, filling and nutritious meal. It’s much easier than it looks and the fragrant flavour perfectly offsets the soft texture. At my place, it often serves as a throw-together-last-minute dinner. In fact, although spinach is recommended in this recipe, you can use pretty much any green vegetable. I’ve substituted before with swiss chard, kale even bok choy and it’s always turned out delicious. The trick is that you wilt the leaves before you add them to the curry which removes their bitter edge. Similarly, you can add chickpeas or crispy firm tofu for added protein and texture.
