Romesco Sauce

I was under the impression that the Romesco Sauce was of Italian origin not knowing that it originated from Catalonia (Spain) and had been created to be served with fish. A simple sauce very similar to the Roasted Pepper Pesto that can be found in my blog. Similar way of making the pesto, just done differently. Again, a popular sauce that can be served as … Continue reading Romesco Sauce

Mu dang-guen saengchae (Radish Carrot Salad)

Went Korean tonight with a Stir-fry Chicken & Jeyuk Bokkeum (BBQ Pork Belly) due to a shortage of time. Someone had a movie to watch and we would not have had time to bring out the tabletop BBQ and take our time. Was going to make  a quick pickle cucumber & carrot (Namasu) or Oi Muchim (Korean Cucumber Salad). Decided to go with Musaengchae to … Continue reading Mu dang-guen saengchae (Radish Carrot Salad)

Oi Muchim (Korean Cucumber Salad)

View Posts A continuation to the Korean BBQ theme that was had for the Chinese New Year 2021. Another new favourite to be added in place of a raita or tzatiki. Basically a ‘cooling’ salad or relish to take the heat off some of the spiciness of the BBQ.  Korean cuisine favours lots of soya sauce (ganjang), sugar (seoltang) and chilli pepper (goju) and as … Continue reading Oi Muchim (Korean Cucumber Salad)

Ssamjang (Korean Soybean dipping sauce)

A continuation of my Korean cuisine journey a la Chinese New Year 2021. The number of blogs or recipes available now is wonderful. When I first searched for a Kimchi recipe in the early 2000s, it was not an easy recipe to find off the internet, nowadays, too many to choose from. I will have to look at my printed copy and have a look … Continue reading Ssamjang (Korean Soybean dipping sauce)

Couscous Chickpea Salad

Couscous is such a easy pasta dish to cook. Pasta? Made of durum wheat or semolina, couscous has become another welcomed dish in many countries. What I like about couscous is the ‘instantness’ of cooking. Practically just adding boiling water and allowing it to soak to rehydrate the pasta. Throw in some vegetables & a protein for a quick snack or meal. Ingredients: 1 cup couscous … Continue reading Couscous Chickpea Salad

Nordic Tuna Salad

When you’ve tasted a simple Danish tuna salad and it stays with you years after you’ve had it. When you remember how much you like it and think you can replicate it. Of course, it would not be the same as you were not the one that made the salad that created such a lasting impression. You can, however, adapt what you remember the taste … Continue reading Nordic Tuna Salad

Chickpea Quinoa Salad

A very boring title for a salad packed with nutrients. I know I could have opted for yet another Mediteranean Power Packed Salad or something else, I didn’t. My husband made this salad for us some months back and I really enjoyed it and wished I had added it to this blog then and there. So here it is, Chickpeas & Quinoa Salad. It is great as … Continue reading Chickpea Quinoa Salad
