MIXED-VEGGIE CROQUETTES 

Inspired by the Japanese Korokke (コロッケ) usually with meat and potatoes, I wanted to make my own vegetarian version; and hopefully, I'll be able to make a full-vegan version as well. But for now, let's just enjoy this vegetable-filled dish perfect as something to accompany your salad or just something you can freeze for the week and cook on the go.

Vegan Comfort Noodles - Alternative for Instant Noodle Lovers


I'd like to share this very spontaneous yet surprisingly good recipe I've done using Japanese Soba Noodles and a whole lot of vegetables.

HEARTY BEANS CHILI RECIPE - EASY RED KIDNEY BEANS RECIPE (Vegan)

Sunday, 9 July 2017


For those asking, "How do I eat healthier within a budget if I'm living in a mega-city like Dubai?" or any other city in fact. 


I’ve created a “Chili” mockup recipe that’s easy to make with ingredients that are not hard to come by and are usually readily available in your pantry (usually cheap when you get them from Carrefour or any other grocery store). It’s become one of our staple dinners since transitioning to a more plant-based diet and it’s really become one of my comfort foods especially during Thursday nights! 

But this laid-back and hearty dinner will also satisfy your dinner or lunch needs on work nights/afternoons while spending less than your usually meat-based dinners/lunch.
