Dinners had to be quick because I was always tired when I got home, just wanted to eat and visit my couch!
#1: oatmeal, veggie tofu stir-fry
this one has celery, black fungus, tofu, oyster mushroom, seasoned with tamari and sesame oil.
#2: Tortilla pizzas, chopped tomato
#3 porridge and spicy-sour cabbage
cabbage sautéed with oyster mushroom, black fungus, seasoned with chinese vinegar and spicy sauce
#4 Wonton! Let me show you how I made it. My mom prepared the filling before she left so I just need to wrap them
used this seaweed soup for the base
put the wonton in boiling water, cook for about 3-4 min
prepare the soup, add more seaweed and boiled romaine lettuce for extra veggies
top with tons of white pepper. The whole dish wouldn’t be the same without white pepper!
#5: porridge, celery salad and soy bean pancake
For the salad I simply boiled celery and dressed with tamari, vinegar, sesame oil and 1 tsp sugar.
And the biggest NEWS is KABOCHA IS BACK TO MY LIFE!!! After not having it for over 5 months (pregnancy aversion), I finally love it again!
Every night I had a bowl of roasted kabocha for dessert, sooooo good! I don’t think I like it steamed yet (as I used to) but I do love cinnamon roasted kabocha. It reminded me grad-student life, when every night Kabocha was my companion. 😉
I still can’t eat steamed corn. I had it once and felt nausea afterwards. I guess the 5 packages that I have in the freeze have to wait a bit longer. 🙂
Q: Have you reunited with any of your past food love recently?
