Gyoza (Japanese Pot Stickers)

May 12, 2021

Gyoza is one of my favorite things to eat when I am back home in the USA. I have always wanted to give it a try myself, from scratch. Before attempting I watched at least 10 videos on YouTube, and picked out the common steps. I highly encourage others to give it a try if you love gyoza as much as me! The possibilities are endless when it comes to the filling. My first time I made a traditional vegan filling, and the second time I used whatever I had.

Here is the video that I feel is the simplest explanation on how to make these beautiful little wrappers :) It is easier to see it than to read about it.

How to cook?

As you can see in the videos above, there are 2 main ways to cook the gyoza. Boiling, and pan frying/steaming. I prefer pan frying them!

Enjoy! :)

One Pot Penne Pasta

May 12, 2021

As with most of the meals I make, this is one that changes slightly each time due to whatever ingredients I have in the fridge. It is a simple and flavorful meal that I do not get tired of making.

This round includes bell pepers, mushrooms, a dash of tumeric and sliced green olives! Other common choices of mine include split cherry tomatoes, spinach and sometimes even sunflower seeds! (Weird? Not sure, but I love the texture it adds! smile)

Recipe

Time: Approximately 30 minutes

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a bowl add the soy cream and soy milk and mix well
  2. Then add chopped onion, salt, and pepper (the original recipe says to set the cream/onion mix in the firdge for 45 minutes, but if you do not have the time it still comes out tasting great.)
  3. To a pot add butter, garlic, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Sautee for 4-5 minutes until mushrooms are "charred" a bit
  4. Add cream/onion mix to pot and water
  5. Add seasonings, olives, and penne
  6. Cover pot and cook on medium/low for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally
  7. Enjoy! :)

Butternut Squash & Cauliflower Soup

May 12, 2021

For my first recipe on my newly redesigned website, I submit a homemade experiment done right :)

Last week, I baked a butternut squash for the first time in my life in an attempt to make squash "spaghetti". I overcooked it so it came out more like mashed potatoes, but was still very tasty! That day, I only ate half of the squash and I saved the other half for an attempt at butternut squash soup.

I had been looking at a few recipes so had an idea of what I wanted to do, but I also did not want to go to the store and get any new ingredients. Plus, I am a big fan of using what I have in the fridge. I had half a head of cauliflower left over from when I made buffalo cauliflower poppers and califlower steaks.

So I threw it all together with the following rough measurements, and it turned out decent enough for me to eat it all :) 

Enjoy!

Recipe

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. To a pot, add ~2 TBSP EVOO
  2. Add minced onions and garlic, sautee for 2-3 mins
  3. Add milk and water, bring to boil
  4. Add cubed squash and cauliflower
  5. Add seasonings and nutritional yeast
  6. Cook over medium for 20 minutes
  7. Use a hand blender or standard blender to blend all ingredients until smooth
  8. Enjoy! :)
