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.

Corn and Chipotle Soup with Avocado–Radish Salsa

Corn and Chipotle Soup with Avocado-Radish Salsa adapted from The Vegetarian Times – October 2012

Spicy Jicama Carpaccio

Jicama is a wonderful vegetable. Looks like a potato, tastes like an apple. I tell Dylan it is a Mexican apple. He likes it.

I tend to serve this with the Beef Tataki slices with soy sauce and wasabi and Portobello Carpaccio with Orange-Kalamata Tapenade. It is a great meal for the whole family. I […]

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

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 […]
