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.

Wontons with Chili Sauce

We love finger food in our family. Often everyone is busy working on their PC, doing homework, home school or running one way or the other. Finger food is great. You can eat it in the office with your PC or the living room with a Pink Pather DVD. Here is a fast wonton recipe […]

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

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 […]

Quiche with Greens

Kale is low in calorie, high in fiber and has zero fat. Kale is high in iron. Per […]

Vegan Mac’n’Cheese

I always loved mac’n’cheese, especially when I was living on my own with very little money. It is amazing the little extras you can come up with to add to the pasta to keep it different every night. Glad those days are behind me.

But now I make this version just because I love it. […]

Cari Ga (Chicken Curry OR Tofu Curry with Sweet potatoes and carrots)

Sean found this recipe in a book I had borrowed from the library and thought it sounded interesting. He was right. I made two pots of it, one with the chicken and the other a Vegan version with tofu. The winning part of this recipe is the Cari Powder. I really liked the flavour it […]

Chipotle Sweet Potato Burger

This is from my new favourite cookbook. I have made quite a few burgers from here both from the recipes and adapting them, they are brilliant. Flavourful, delicious and if this is important to you, many taste just like the meat versions – only better. Here is one I made just for me, all 8 […]

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) […]

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 […]
