Roasted Garlic Hummus

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!


Since I got food processor, I use it at least once a day to make my meal. I knew a food processor is such a wonderful tool because it is so convenient, but I never thought the gadget could be that convenient.


In 3 seconds, it can mince hard veggies or make veg soup smooth. I’m sure this gadget appears often in my cooking life.


So today, I’m sharing the-recipe-of-how-i-did for one of the most popular dips in the world: HUMMUS!


Before I come to the US, I never tasted hummus because I didn’t have opportunity to try it, even garbanzo bean. But when I tried it at mediterranean restaurant, I fell in love with the paste. Creamy and rich flavor of garbanzo bean and crispy pita bread cracker make the best combination, and even though I wanted to make my own, it was difficult without having food processor. But now, I have my own and I can choose what flavor to add. Then my next step is just try making it!


I choose roasted garlic to add up this time, so if you like hummus as snack or appetiser, just continue reading and make it on your own!

Pan Grilled Yummy Yam Potato

Hello, welcome to my new posting!


I’m tanooki, wondering around what to eat NOW, and what other people eating while I’m eating something 😛


Anyways, I’m so obsessed eating food that is made with potatoes.

French fries, of course, baked potatoes, yeah I’ll have some with some sour cream, and potato salad, can I have it with tomato cup? XD


But sometimes I want to cook my typical recipe by using yam instead of potatoes.

The sweet one can be used as dessert and side dish of savory menu.


This time, I put a pinch of perilla to give it herbal flavor.

If you want a twist on your ordinal recipe, try this!

Marinated Eggplant

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!


I think I like to marinate veggies.

When I was a big meat lover, I used to marinate chicken, beef, and pork a lot, but since my dinner buddy decided to be a vegan, I stopped cooking meat (well, I should say cook LESS. sometimes I can’t stop thinking about how tasty a meat can be, so it is impossible to completely change my eating habit.)


So now, I marinate zucchini and variety of veggie to make my food flavorful.

This time, I’d like to share marinated food by using one of my favorite veggie: Eggplant!!


For marinated zucchini, the recipe that I shared you all a while ago, I used balsamic vinegar. But for this one, I used soy sauce, the traditional Japanese ingredients that appears on most of my dish!   


If you want to add a side dish on your asian food, this is the one you should try!
