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.

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 […]

Spicy Smoky Barbecue Ribz

This is another great recipe from Party Vegan by Robin Robertson. I love all her recipes from Planet Vegan and Party Vegan and everything else in between. You can make the recipes right out of the book with little or no changes and they are perfect. I like to make small changes and sometimes large […]

Ultimate Shepherd’s Pie Updated

I am re-posting this as I made some changes to the way I make it and love it. This is something I could (and usually do) have once a week. I love the addition of celeriac / celery root to the topping and have eliminated the need for EVOO or soy milk in the topping. […]

Champ

A great DVD is Jamie Oliver in “Oliver’s Twists 2” . I guess there was a number one but I have not seen it yet. First let me say that we do not have TV. We have a TV, several in fact but we only watch DVD’s and VHS tapes, no actual TV shows. I […]

Hake in Beer Batter

Sean loves fish and chips and is quite the connoisseur of the fish and chips that they serve in the restaurants in our area that he goes to. He is quite particular about how the batter should be and the fish and the chips etc. He really like this one so we have made it […]
