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.

Tofu and Vegetable Lo Mein

Wow, one week of being Vegan and feeling great. The biggest hurdle, What to put in my morning coffee? I made the mistake the first day of using vanilla soy milk, yuch! but then bought unsweetened soy milk, perfect.
My daughter decided to go vegetarian a while ago and now has decided to go vegan. I thought, okay so will I. I have to cook a different meal for her anyway so why not explore this for myself. I mentioned picking up the "Vegan Planet" by Robin Robertson before but I really can not believe how great this book is. I have made a dozen or more recipes from it and everyone has been a big hit, not just with Hayley and myself, but with the meat lovers too!

Here is another vegan dish that everyone will love. This one is Belle’s favourite. I have made it with Japanese Udon, Chinese Lo Mein and will try many other egg-less noodles, they will all be great!
