About Me

Here at Sensei Cooks I write about my adventures in the kitchen and sometimes in the dojo.

I have a love for cooking and want to explore all the possible facets of it. Leave no stone unturned so to speak.

I am Vegan and love all types of vegan cooking.

I love the process of cooking. Being in the moment. Sort of Zen and the Art of Cooking.

Glasgow Potato Scones

Belle and I went to see Jamie Oliver last week here in Toronto at Massey Hall. It is the second time we have seen him and he was even better this time. It was a “in the living room” type of event, sitting and talking. Last time the interviewer was really terrible but thankfully they […]

Seafood Congee

This is not a vegan recipe but Belle really likes this one. I thought I should make a record of it so I am putting on the blog, sort of my on-line recipe book. This is a very simple Chinese dish and goes great with anything. It is common for breakfast and late night snack […]

Vegan Pancakes

This is a follow up to the Gluten-Free & Vegan Pancakes I posted the other day. Dylan’s friends were over and I made them the GF-Vegan pancakes but today I wanted to try regular vegan pancakes. Found these on-line and they are wonderful. You absolutely can not tell the difference between these and regular egg […]

Gluten-Free and Vegan Pancakes

Dylan had his first sleep over last night with two of his friends who are on gluten-free diets. What to have for breakfast? Pancakes, I haven’t had them in ages and Dylan might actually try them. I found a recipe on-line and thought it sounded like it might work. It was a big hit.

Tibetan Flatbread

This is a dead simple, fast and savoury bread from Jacques Pépin. I have the DVD set but I can’t remember this recipe on it. The book has far more recipes. I happen to see it at the library when I took Dylan for his Unschoolers/Homeschoolers Gym class at the Recreation Centre (the library is […]

Buttermilk Biscuits

Belle and Sean love the biscuits you get at a local chicken take out place “Chick’n’Joy” and I want to reproduce them. I guess I will have to ask them how they do it. I found this recipe for buttermilk biscuits from Thomas Keller. I found them a wee bit salty and even Belle (there […]

Potato Roesti

It has been a while since I managed the time to get a post up, but here it is. I was bored with things we had for lunch and then I remembered a book Belle picked up at the library so I started going through and found this version of a Roesti. I made them […]

Bacon, Mushroom, Onion and Chive Omelet

This was a great omelet and can be thrown together in minutes. Perfect for our mid-afternoon snack time. We tend to eat dinner around 7pm so around 2pm it is time for a snack (lunch). Belle, Sean and Hayley bought me more cookbooks for Christmas and this was one of them. We like many of […]
