Thai Zoodle, Fresh and Flavourful!

A few months ago I bought a spiralizer and started really loving zoodles or courgettis. It is so easy to take up a zucchini and transform it into noodles. Since I’m gluten-free, this is the perfect option as it is inexpensive and replaces wheat pastas really well. I really like to make thicker noodles thatContinue reading “Thai Zoodle, Fresh and Flavourful!”

Vietnamese recipe:Che Chuoi, Banana pudding

Another dessert! Again with bananas! This is a little bit different, but definitely in the same flavour combinations. I really enjoy this because, again, it is so easy to make and so delicious too! It is also very comforting as you can eat this warm. Perfect dessert for a cold day! As a kid, IContinue reading “Vietnamese recipe:Che Chuoi, Banana pudding”

Vietnamese Recipe: Banh Chuoi, Banana Cake

I think it is about time we talk about desserts! This one is one of my mom’s favourite, and I remember her making huge batches of this. I would then bring slices of it as a snack for school: yum! It is very simple, but the lime flavour is super refreshing and light, which goesContinue reading “Vietnamese Recipe: Banh Chuoi, Banana Cake”

Vietnamese Recipe, Banh Cuon, Steamed Rolls

I cannot begging to explain how excited I used to be (and still am, if I’m completely honest) when my mom would make these steamed rolls. When I became vegan, she revamped her recipe, and it is so delicious! The vegan version has nothing to envy to the original one! Here is what you need:Continue reading “Vietnamese Recipe, Banh Cuon, Steamed Rolls”

Vietnamese Recipe, Hanh Phi, Shallot Garnish

This is a really simple recipe, but full of flavour! This shallot garnish is used in many different Vietnamese dishes, including the upcoming Banh Cuon recipe. These steamed rolls were my favourite as a kid, and they were not complete without their fried shallots garnish. Here is what you need: 200g shallots 1 cup vegetableContinue reading “Vietnamese Recipe, Hanh Phi, Shallot Garnish”

Vietnamese Recipe: Vegan “fish” sauce

Many Vietnamese dishes require the traditional and hugely famous Nuoc Mam or fish sauce. As a vegan, this can be really discouraging and sad. However, a few months ago, my mom visited a new vegetarian restaurant in Montreal and brought me a bottle of soy-based “fish” sauce. I was so excited to try it out!Continue reading “Vietnamese Recipe: Vegan “fish” sauce”

Vietnamese Recipe: Chia Gio, fried rolls

For the first Vietnamese recipe I want to share with you, I decided on Chia Gio, which is the Vietnamese version of egg rolls. This is a dish that my mom usually makes for familly gatherings or special occasions as it is quite long to make. The rolls are served with fresh lettuce leaves, ThaiContinue reading “Vietnamese Recipe: Chia Gio, fried rolls”

Vietnamese Food Series!

Last week was my March break week: I have already started a very serious mourning period! I took advantage of the time I had to organize my school work, plan my exams, correct the pieces of work I had collected, and plan all my classes until the end of the year… I wish! I actuallyContinue reading “Vietnamese Food Series!”

Chuc Mung Nam Moi!

Happy Lunar New Year! or as we say in Vietnam, Chuc Mung Nam Moi! To celebrate this, I wanted to share a Vietnamese specialty with you. Every new year, or Tet, my mom buys banh chung. Banh Chung is a glutinous rice cake filled with mung bean paste and tofu. It is steamed in aContinue reading “Chuc Mung Nam Moi!”

Jackfruit Stir Fry

A few weeks ago (or was it a few months?) jackfruit pulled pork recipes where everywhere. Having tasted jackfruit before I was a little skeptical about the “meatiness” of it. Still, I jumped on the band-wagon, and I have to say, I’m quite happy with the result. First, you need to know that you canContinue reading “Jackfruit Stir Fry”
