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.

Pub Style Chicken Curry

This is a fantastic curry. Really easy to make and tastes even better the next day – if you ever have any leftovers (which I seldom do). I made a few changes from the original recipe like increasing the number of Thai red chilis for more heat. I also changed from vegetable oil to olive […]

Thai Green Chicken Curry with Rice Noodles

Belle, Sean and I all love the Green Thai Curry we get from Ginger Restaurant on Yonge Street, just north of Dundas. Great restaurant and great prices. They call this Pad Thai & Chicken/Beef/Shrimp Curry. I have tried several times to recreate their dish with no success. One more try tonight and we hit nailed […]

Banh Mi Thit Nguoi

Belle brought this book Banh Mi home from the library and knowing how much Sean loves sandwiches I asked him to pick one so I could make it for dinner. I took a quick look first and realized most of the meat dishes required a day in advance preparation. Little did I know how much […]

Homey Chicken Stew

Wednesdays are always a challenge for us, dinner wise. Dylan has dance class at 4:30 and 6pm so eating before is way to early for this household. I grew up eating at 5:00pm every night, or at least pretty darn close to 5pm. But with our lifestyle, people going to bed at 2 or 3am […]

Roast Chicken with Lemon, Garlic and Rosemary

 

This recipe comes from a Jamie Oliver DVD I have Oliver’s Twist 2, episode “Big Up the Veg”. Great DVD series with equally as wonderful recipes.

The hardest part of this recipe is deciding if you should do two chickens just so you will have lots of left overs. It requires no more work […]

Cari Ga (Chicken Curry OR Tofu Curry with Sweet potatoes and carrots)

Sean found this recipe in a book I had borrowed from the library and thought it sounded interesting. He was right. I made two pots of it, one with the chicken and the other a Vegan version with tofu. The winning part of this recipe is the Cari Powder. I really liked the flavour it […]

Pennsylvania Dutch Style Chicken Pot Pie

I really enjoy being vegan and not buying, handling or cooking meat but every once in a while Belle asks for a steak, salmon or chicken. One of her favourite meals is Roast Chicken which I made the other day and will post it very soon. In the mean time one of her American friends […]

Fajita Burger

Belle decided she would like chicken instead of the usual beef we have been eating way too much of lately. We borrowed a few cookbooks from the library and decided to give these a try. I found two I wanted to try, a Tandoori Chicken burger and a Fajita Chicken burger. I finally decided on […]
