Recipe: Cucumber Carrot Sushi Rolls

These are actually a lot easier to make then you’d think and while it’s a bit like pancakes (your first roll while likely not look great) each roll will keep improving. I’ve never particularly talented with my hands and these come out impressive anyway. The nice thing is that they have no fish or cooked…

Recipe: Tofu Laksa

I’m a big fan of spicy soups and this one is great with a really hearty spicy base and a lot of crunchy tofu and vegetables and noodles to make it extra delicious. You can add anything you like in including meat or seafood but I was in a crispy tofu mood when I was…

Recipe: Grilled Salmon in Miso Broth

Despite having a fancy name this is actually a fairly simple recipe that can be made basically any week night. I made some sweet potato mash and greens to go with it but a bagged salad and instant potatoes will still be good if you don’t have any effort to deal with making extra dishes.

Recipe: Rainbow Lasagna

This is a LOT of work and it’s probably really best that you make your own lasagna noodles for best results too so it’s just work on work on work but you get something that is basically made for instagram and slightly worse than regular noodles and cheese lasagna. It’s hard to improve on a…

Recipe: Picnic Pie

I think of this as a perfect representation of what I think British food is like. It’s straight forward and to the point. A hunk of cooked sausage stuffed with some boiled eggs and wrapped in pastry. Nothing fussy or complicated, easy to carry in a lunch, easy to eat with one hand. It’s so…

Recipe: Crunchwrap Supreme

Since there’s no Taco Bell here in Estonia I’ve got to make do by making my own weird junk not-quite-Mexican food. Never mind that I’ve never had a Crunchwrap and I’ve been to Taco Bell exactly once in my life, it seems like a noble goal. This is basically an upgraded strange version of a…

Recipe: Kreplach

These are really delicious and you can speed up the whole process if you use store brought stock or just make a really big batch and freeze the kreplach dumplings separate from the soup. I do have to admit this is a chore to make all at once and takes a LONG time to come…

Recipe: Aloo Matar Gobi

This is a super simple curry made from plenty of vegetables so that it is really filling. It’s a really dry curry so it’s especially good with some nice chewy bread or even yogurt as a side but it doesn’t end up with a gravy so there’s nothing to sop up. This would work really…

Recipe: Chraime

This is a great blend of fish and tomato sauce. It’s spicy, it’s creamy without cream, it’s soft but has a nice bite. It’s just an all around dish. This is best served over rice or couscous or with a nice crusty bread so you can sop up all the sauce.

Recipe: Mantlebrot

This Jewish staple is basically just almond biscotti but is that such a bad thing? I made this one with plenty of almond slices and dried cranberries but feel free to throw in your favorite dried fruit or nuts.
