Vegan Chili Relleno

I love Chili Rellenos but feel sad that vegans can't enjoy the same thing I am. I came up with a delicious alternate that I teach in my cooking school.

Plant Based Mexican Pozole

I'm so excited to share this plant based Mexican pozole with you. The flavor is similar to the traditional pozole, but without meat. I used smoked tempeh and mushrooms to give it a meaty consistency.  The red miso gives it an earthy flavor that deepens the broth. The dried and fresh roasted peppers are a must to give this pozole an authentic taste. Condiments lighten up the plant based Mexican pozole and give a refreshing crunch with every bite. Stock: 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced yellow onion 3 garlic cloves 1 carrot chopped in chunks 3 whole black peppercorns 2 bay...Read More

Focaccia Bread

Italian's love their focaccia bread. Served as a snack or accompanied with pasta and roast meats. One secret for making good focaccia is don't skimp on the olive oil! Focaccia,  is a flat, slightly raised bread, not unlike pizza crust. For many parts of Italy  focaccia has been especially popular near the sea, where humidity in the air inhibits the full rising of conventional bread dough. Traditionally the bread is flavored with only coarse salt or rosemary. But, you can top your focaccia with onion, tomatoes, black or green olives, even wisps of lemon peel. 1  7-gram packet of active...Read More

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Nothing is more quintessential to Americanized Chinese food than the sweet and sour chicken. The origin of sweet and sour chicken was in the 18th century or earlier from China. It spreads to the United States in the early 20th century after the Chinese migrant gold miners and railroad workers turned to cookery as trades. Yes, became a little sweeter for the American pallet, but still as delicious. Try my other Asian fare and be delighted by the authentic flavors. 1/2 lb. chicken Step One 1 egg yolk 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce 6 tablespoons cornstarch Oil for frying...Read More
