Mine’s Hummus, Turkish Cypriot Style

Although I come from “that” part of the world, I have never been a huge fan of Hummus. I still pushed myself every now and then and tried making some but each attempt turned into a unique disaster in some unique way. You know the supermarket ones over here are a different story altogether. They… Continue reading Mine’s Hummus, Turkish Cypriot Style

Colourful Quinoa Salad with Roasted Capsicum

My first quinoa recipe on VegFusion ever!

In Peru, we had quinoa bars and quinoa and vegetable soups. After… Continue reading Colourful Quinoa Salad with Roasted Capsicum

I add this salad to Linda McCartney’s pies, Fry’s Vegetarian Crumbed Schnitzels, Spoon’s Vienna Style Schnitzels or any mock meat that become… Continue reading Arugula Salad with Walnuts and Cheezly

Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

This is such an interesting side dish if you are after something out of ordinary and is apparently part of Ashkenazi kitchen. The recipe comes from Marlena Spieler’s book called Jewish Cooking. I have always had a good feeling about this recipe and it turned out to be quite something. Although this is the first… Continue reading Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

TVP Stuffed Red Capsicum

Again, I took some shortcuts but I have my reasons. There is no way of making the original Turkish stuffed vegetables here in Australia. First of all, the type of capsicum we use in this dish doesn’t exist here. Not just the capsicum but also the zucchini and eggplant are unstuffable.  The original recipe uses… Continue reading TVP Stuffed Red Capsicum
