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.

Roasted Butternut Squash, Apple and Barley Soup

 

The original recipe is for farro instead of barley but I could not find farro so I substituted pearl barley instead. It was great. I will keep looking for farro and give it a try that way too. Hayley and her friend polished off my left overs so it was a hit with others […]

Corn and Chipotle Soup with Avocado–Radish Salsa

What a great soup. The salsa transforms this soup into a meal. There is enough heat in the two chipotle chiles to satisfy but I think three next time is worth a try.

 

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

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 […]

Another great Vegan recipe from the HappyHerbivore. I was getting lazy about making myself lunches and would settle for peanut butter or something but then I tried a spicy black bean soup from the local grocery store (Loblaws) and really liked it. It is spicy but not my kind of spicy. Then I found this […]

Vampires’ Demise Roasted Garlic & Pumpkin Soup

You never know where the next great family recipe keeper will come from. I was flipping through the LCBO’s ‘Food & Drink’ magazine and found this halloween themed recipe. What a great soup! For those not living in Ontario, where the only place you can buy liquor is at a government controlled (& heavily taxed) […]

Potato Leek Soup

Happy New Year – Akemashite Omedeto Gozaimasu  to everyone! 

I have finally some time to get some recipes up. Lots of new vegan and non vegan cookbooks for Christmas, lots of cooking just no time for blogging. I will try to rectify that now.

Out of one of the new vegan books I […]

New England Style Chowder

Here is another recipe from my new favourite cookbook – The Vegan Planet.  I loved the chowder although we all felt it needed more potatoes, so I would suggest you use two instead of the one called for. Oyster mushrooms are available at most large supermarkets. Kombu is a dried sea vegetable that can be […]

Pumpkin Soup with Sage

Autumn, what a wonderful time to be Vegan. The markets are overflowing with all sorts of incredible vegetables. Here is a recipe that Hayley picked from one of my magazines. I had to make a couple of changes to veganize it and it was really fantastic. At the local market they had the pumpkins on […]
