Thai Coconut Rice

Posted on

Here is the recipe for the rice. I opted for a mix of white rice and brown rice, and half purple, half orange carrots.

Vegan Kare Kare

Posted on

This recipe already adapts the dish to make it vegan, but I had to make further adjustments. First, I was only able to find banana blossom canned. Second, I chose to get cheaper green beans rather than long beans. Third, I thought I had puffed rice – but I didn’t – so the sauce is a little thinner. And finally I had annato seeds but not powder, so I wasn’t able to get as pronounced a colour when I soaked them.

Here’s the recipe I used.

Black Fungus Cucumber Salad

I modified this recipe by briefly boiling the mu-err mushrooms (black fungus) to ensure they were tender. I really liked this salad, in part because I love both star anise and mu-err mushrooms.

This spicy carrot salad is pretty good, and a change from most salads I have eaten.

Black pasta with pickled rhubarb and ginger

Posted on

Some recipes just don’t turn out. This one, which I modified by using black soybean pasta to make it vegan, was tasted by three people, and we would all describe it as Bad – I will never make this again. We all like rhubarb, and I usually like Ottolenghi’s recipes, but this dish disappointed.

Vegan Dan Dan Noodles

This is quite tasty and I plan to make it again. I used whole wheat noodles and replaced some of the sugar with stevia for a little extra nutrition. I also used some ground chilli – about one teaspoon – instead of chilli oil.
