Tom Kha Gai

We’re having a thai food bonanza over here, and this was tonight’s meal: Vegan tom kha gai (you know, that coconut milk broth soup that always has a million mushrooms floating in it?), using the recipe [here] of Megan over at TheseThingsILove. (Credit also goes to my BFF, for showing me the recipe.) I cannot believe how good the broth tasted and smelled even before we had all the ingredients in. (more…)


Gyoza, Veggies & Rice


This is such a go-to meal for us: Gyoza (I prefer pork-and-cabbage or stinky seafood ones, myself, and The BF goes for vegetarian ones), rice (our default is jasmine rice), whatever veggies we have one hand (lightly steamed and sometimes with things like soy or vinegar or garlic on them) + a dipping sauce (typically, soyaki sauce from Trader Joe’s). For cheaper gyoza (and greater variety), try an Asian grocery store like 99 Ranch.
