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.

Afghanistan Yellow Rice

Friends took us to this great Afghanistan restaurant (Bamiyan Kabob) near the Ontario Science Centre. I had my doubts that Dylan would try or like anything there but he discovered their rice.

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 […]

Smoke and Spice Jambalaya

This is one of my favourite recipes. It is right up there with the vegan Shepherd’s pie. I could have this jambalaya at least once a week and if I was making it for myself I would make it a little hotter than I make it for the family. I did not find tempeh […]

This is a Chinese favourite and of course that goes for our family. I have never tried making them myself until now. They are easy to make, it is just the steaming time that is lengthy, but you really don’t have to do anything except make sure there is enough water in the wok. Being […]

Coconut-Cardamom Rice Pudding

First let me say I have *never* had rice pudding. The very thought of it just made me , well , sort of you know. Hayley picked this recipe from our "Book" and I finally decided to make it at midnight so she could have it for breakfast or lunch tomorrow. I had some rice […]

I have been really slow at getting posts up lately. I have been cooking a lot but have no time on the PC. It might be me or maybe Dylan has been going crazy with RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 on my PC. Why did I load it on mine instead of his computer??? Anyway I finally […]

Nasi Goreng – Indonesian Fried Rice

This is a great vegetarian meal all on it’s own or you can serve it with meat, other vegetables or seafood. I made it the other night with Seared Wasabi and Black Sesame Seed Tuna Steaks. You can play with the ingredients a lot here. Vary the type of mushrooms you use or use a […]
