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.

Lighter Coleslaw

In this coleslaw – based off a recipe from a friend – I replaced most of the mayonnaise with Greek yoghurt. It also contains cabbage, carrot, red onions, lime juice and a chilli pepper.

Here’s a recipe for this salad, which can easily serve as a complete lunch because it contains bread.

Grilled Aubergine/Eggplant with Tomato and Basil

Posted on

I was inspired by this recipe, but modified it. As I do not have a ridged griddle pan, I grilled the aubergine/eggplant in the oven. I used cherry tomatoes and Asian aubergines which I seasoned with marjoram before grilling.

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

Spring Onion Salad

Posted on

I made a variation of this spring onion salad, using a large cucumber but retaining the seeds, and leaving out the coriander leaf because I didn’t have any. I also opted for a yellow sweet pepper instead of a green pepper, which I find too bitter.

The second time I made this I had the coriander leaf handy but reduced the spring onions because they hadn’t yet recovered from my previous salad. The mint, coriander and cucumber combination reminded me a little of Thai beef salad, which I think would work quite well without the beef. The main difference is the Thai salad contains soy sauce, garlic and basil as well.
