Shiitake Mushroom and Tofu Potstickers (Dumplings)

I’ve been wanting to make dumplings for a long time now and finally got around to it. Needless to say, this is going to become a regular basis meal. I followed the recipe from The Kitchn pretty closely, would love to try it the same way with different fillings! As she says in the post,… Continue reading Shiitake Mushroom and Tofu Potstickers (Dumplings)

Curried Red Lentil, Carrot, and Sweet Potato Soup

I love making soup because it’s easy, flexible and keeps well in the fridge. I also find that a lot of soups actually taste better the day after they’re made; giving the flavours time to develop can pay off.

The other great thing about having see-through rolls is that you don’t have to bake it, so you can pack them full of raw veggies. They look colourful and go well with… Continue reading Rice Paper Salad Rolls

Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies

Although making a gingerbread house from a kit is fun, eating it never tastes that good. The gingerbread has been in the box for a while and lacks flavour. The icing is basically hard sugar. Sure, it looks pretty, but I don’t want to eat it. So that being said, homemade gingerbread is a thousand… Continue reading Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies
