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.

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 […]

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.

Warm Bean Sprout Salad with Crispy Garlic

This is a really nice warm salad or a great snack. I often make it as a between meals snack or a late night treat. Bean sprouts are wonderful and really easy to grow yourself. Try this next time you are having an Asian meal. Belle prefers the garlic soft and not crispy so I […]

Gluten-Free Pizza

Another play date for Dylan and a chance to try and make some good Gluten Free food. It is very difficult to make vegan gluten free but you can if you experiment with a lot of combinations however today, I was not going to be eating the pizza so I did not make it vegan, […]

Ravioli Without Borders

This was a fun recipe and really could be very quick and easy. The idea is to use wonton wrappers instead of pasta, this makes it very easy to put together. I wanted to make the home-made Vegan pasta but decided to try this as I have also read this same idea in Jamie Oliver’s […]

Halloween Butternut Squash and Black Bean Chili in a Pumpkin

I know I should have posted this before Halloween so it could be made for that day but I forgot. I also don’t think when you make it matters just as long as you do make it and often.This is a great vegan chili with orange and black colours, so it is a natural for […]

Vegan Home-Made Pasta

Well I said yesterday I should make some Vegan home-made pasta and so this morning I did. Not bad at all. It was easy to make and tastes great. Dylan said it tastes the same as the egg pasta I usually made. I put everything in the food processor out of habit but I am […]

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 […]

Gonzales Meatloaf

Sean loves meatloaf and I wanted to try something different. I found this meatloaf recipe in the Texas Cowboy Kitchen book (which I just love) and everyone loved it. Even Belle loved it and she is NOT a meatloaf kind of person. Give this a try, it is quick and easy and makes for wonderful […]

Pasta and Cheddar Cheese Sauce

I have found myself starting to make recipes I have already blogged about. I need to break out of my safety zone and go crazy. Well actually we have been trying to work through our freezers and fridges so I end up making things that I know because we have the same ingredients. We have […]
