Tofu Scramble

Tofu Scramble

Whenever I used to eat at continental breakfasts buffets, I would ask to have my eggs scrambled at the egg counter. I’ve always been partial to its fluffiness, and I found it slightly more palatable than an egg that showcases a yolk and white as […]

Minty Longan Green Tea Slushie

Minty Longan Green Tea Slushie

One of my most favourite fruits in the world is Longan. It’s part of the soapberry family, along with the Lychee and Rambutan. Soapberries get their name from many varieties of such fruits having soap-like qualities and have been traditionally used for cleaning, washing and […]

Potato Salad with Water Apple (Jambu Air)

Potato Salad with Water Apple (Jambu Air)

If you go to a local market in Malaysia, the tropical fruits are there as much as the omnipresent apples and oranges. No offense to apples and oranges, they’re fantastic and we grow up on them. But we grow up singing ‘A is for Apple’ […]

Tempeh Fingers

Tempeh Fingers

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Tempeh is a vegan godsend. I love how nutritional and versatile it is, and ridiculously cheap and available in Malaysia too. I think it’s almost criminal to be a vegan here and NOT eat it. I […]

Luffa with Corn, Shitake and Glass Noodles

Luffa with Corn, Shitake and Glass Noodles

Luffa is one of those vegetables that I’ve been eating occasionally, without ever really knowing what it actually is. Ironically, I’ve also been passing by it regularly in the local markets, without knowing that it was luffa! My recent discovery of what it was, buying […]
