Pumpkin pesto

Sometimes the ideas come from the fridge, so I gave a look then I found grilled asian pumpkin left, a bunch of basil and puff pastry which I bought the day before. Well, well,,, Maybe we should try something different 😉 . I want a tart of pumpkin, I also found some mushroom left. I think we have enough main ingredients for this delicious dish.

Sukiyaki noodles

This is not a traditional sukiyaki from Japan. I love sukiyaki sauce which serves in Cambodia. I made it alot last week and last night I tried it as stir fried. It’s quite delicious, yet so easy to make. So what will be your excuse to not cooking? 😛 Gosh,,, this is the Paradise. I am so excited to share this recipe.

Here we need

A handful of Rice noodles ( soak in water till it turn soft. If you use fresh one even better)

A handful of bean sprouts

A pin of paprika or chilli

Vegetables oil or olive oil

Little bit water

Homemade sukiyaki sauce Here the recipe ( don’t use fish sauce if you are vegetarian )

How to make

 

  1. Hit a large pan on a stove then put oil then you put the rice noodles in. Stir well, put little bit water to cook the noodles. Then put a full table spoon of sukiyaki sauce and keep stirring.
  2. Wait until it’s almost cook, you can throw the bean sprouts in then follow by another 2 tbp of sukiyaki sauce ( or as much you need. Depend on you taste). Stir well!!!
  3. Serve when it’s hot. You put little bit of paprika before serving. I use dried chilli. Some cashews to make this dish more fancy…
  4. salt if as needed

Spinach bed and sweet Tofu

I opened my fridge, I found some ingrediants which I did’t really know what I should make. I love creative foods and I also love traditional foods. I thought of Loc Lac which once again is one of my favorite. So I combined the creativity and traditional recipe to satisfy myself. Normally, we use beef as meat in Loc Lac recipe. Today we use our tofu to be our heavenly delicious meat. mmmm… It was my first attempt and the result was quite interesting, my daughter and I loved it.

My little Lunch

Such a beautiful day and I had couple hours free from work. I just walked out to grab a lunch at my neighbor’s restaurant, Café Marmot. I was welcomed by Ben and Jes, the two beautiful people. Since I am on my vegetarian period, they suggested a dish for me it was Brocolli Tarte. That was the 2nd time I ate veggie tarte.
