Cousin’s Spicy Eggplant Tofu [Vegetarian/Vegan]

My cousin in Trinidad specifically requested a vegetarian post, using eggplant.  This was quite difficult for me, as I generally dislike all forms of eggplant.  Don’t like moussaka; don’t like bhurtha; don’t like baba ganoush … suffice it to say I find this vegetable repulsive.  There is however, one single eggplant dish that I do…

Striker Stir Fry Gai Lan with Garlic and Mushrooms [Vegetarian/Vegan]

Since this blog is about Food We Like To Eat, it won’t always be the most intricate, nor super special generations-passed-down dish that you’ve come to expect.  Growing up, my mom always cooked gai lan by steaming it, and then pouring oyster sauce on it.  There’s nothing wrong with that at all!  In fact I…

Char Siu Udon [Vegetarian/Vegan Option]

We always have a lot of leftovers in this house.  We purposely buy or make enough food to last for the next few days for lunches, and general laziness.  One such item that we always have too much of is BBQ pork.  Both when we buy it from a Chinese BBQ shop, or when we…

Avocado Shake (Sinh To Bo imitation) [Vegan Option]

I love avocadoes.  In sushi, in in guacamole, in sandwiches, plain … they are an awesome fruitegitable (I have no idea if its a fruit or veggie).  One way that I REALLY love them is as a smoothie.  Combining avocadoes and condensed milk together? I’M IN! This recipe is easily made vegan friendly (which I…

Cauliflower ‘Rice’

We are trying to limit our rice intake these days (which for a Chinese person is like asking a fish to live out of water), and Jax has a great way of doing this, while still psychologically making you feel like you had your starch for the meal!  The solution? Chop of cauliflower super small…
