    • Onion (1/4, minced)
    • Lemon
    • Soaked and boiled chickpeas (310g)
    • Green curry paste (1 & 1/2 teaspoon)
    • Coconut milk (1/2 can)
  • Preparation
    • In a sauce pan, heat the oil
    • Add and stir the onion
    • Cut a thin slice of lemon and add it in the sauce pan
    • When the onion begin to brown, add the chickpeas, and stir well
    • Add the curry paste, stir
    • Add the coconut milk and use a little fire.

Caramelised tofu

☼ Hiya little suns ! 🙂

Hope you are doing well.

This is the dinner I have for my come back in Oxford, UK. I wanted to “veganise” one meal I love : the caramelised pork. This is not the Asian version, but the New-Caledonian one, and we were just tasting the heaven my lil brother and I each time we had the chance to eat this meal.

But, as a vegan, I don’t want to eat a pig anymore ! So, I used tofu (Mom bought me tofu, so I had to find something to do with it ! xd )

Here is my recipe ! 😀

  • Ingredients (for 2 persons)
    • Tofu (250g)
    • Sugar ( 3 tablespoons)
    • Onion (1/4)
    • Soy sauce (light, 6 or 7 tablespoons)
    • Vegetable oil (olive oil in my case)
  • Preparation
    • Cut in cubes the tofu
    • Minced the onion
    • In a sauce pan, heat the oil (4 or 5 tblsp)
    • Brown the tofu few minutes (to have a beautiful golden color)
    • Set the tofu aside
    • Make a caramel with the sugar in the sauce pan
    • When the caramel is like a syrup, add the minced onion
    • Stir until the onion begins to “melt”
    • Add the tofu cubes and stir 3 minutes
    • Add the soy sauce and stir well
    • Done ! 😛
  • Serve
    • You can serve with basmati rice (I did with brown rice) and top with spring onion, and EAT ! 😀

 

Fried veggies !

☼ Hiya my little suns! ♥

I made this plate 4 days ago, and now, I’m sharing it with you.

I had lots of vegetables to eat, so I decided to cook them all together!

I took pictures all during the preparation, but my camera is old, tired, and maybe I need to change the objective, so, all the pictures have a really bad quality (blur, too much light, too dark, too close, etc). It makes me feel like I don’t know how to take photos, but NO, I disagree! x’D

Next time, I’ll try with my smartphone, and with daylight 🙂

So, here is the recipe! 🙂

Don’t forget, I share principally the ingredients and how I cooked, but feel completely free to add or remove ingredients, change the proportions, and cook as you like. Write your own song! 🙂
