Fish and Kale Bruschetta

Well… I haven’t been posting recently. I just got really swamped after my last salad post with the planning of my photo exhibition (you can take a peek at my photography at inspiritia.tumblr.com), going to all my friends’ birthday parties (Many of them are born from mid April to mid May), celebrating my own birthday and hosting + hanging out with Sarah who’s visiting from New York (we made sushi yesterday-post coming up) and we’re going to enjoy a full relaxing day at the spa tomorrow.

 Lately… in pictures.

Cheese Sandwich with Veggies

Hey guys! I hope you’ve spent a great Easter weekend! I was out of town visiting family, so I haven’t been cooking for the past few days. I’ve been going to holiday gatherings and there were of course lots of food! So after I came back, I told myself that I’m going to eat very simple and light this week — lots of veggies, salads and soups.

This is an easy cheese sandwich I like to make, which is absolutely yummy!

Ingredients:

  • Cheese, cut in slices (here I used cheddar and swiss cheese)
  • Celery sticks
  • Cucumber slices
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Coriander

Instructions:

  • Cut the cheese in slices and place them in the bread
  • Put the bread in a toaster oven and heat it up for a few minutes until it’s crispy
  • Add the veggies and it’s ready!

Easy Noodle Soup

You think Spring has settled in as the temperature goes higher and higher, but as soon as you store all your winter coats and boots away, the weather plays a joke on you and cools down drastically by a lot. So here I am, walking home from work on this chilly evening fighting against the wind, hoping to get home as fast as I can.

And since I don’t have any strong motivation to spend a lot of time cooking on this Monday evening, I opted for this quick and easy Noodle Soup for supper. To make it healthier, you could add lots of veggies of your choice.

What I did here is:

  • Boil 2 cups of water
  • Add the soup base/stock cube
  • Add the fish balls and tofu cubes
  • After 1-2 minutes, add the baby Bok Choy and Bean Sprouts
  • Add the noodle last and let it cook for 3 minutes
  • Put 2 drops of sesame oil

That’s it!

Have a great Monday night!

Chickpea Qunioa Salad

As I’m learning to cook more delicious vegetarian dishes, there’s sometimes the worry of not getting enough protein. But there are so many other sources of protein other than meat, such as beans, tofu and QUINOA! This salad is very easy to make.

All you need to do is combine all ingredients and toss well. Let the salad stand for a while before serving.

Tofu Fish Stew

STEWS are wonderful, a comfort food that’s perfect for colder weathers! They are extremely flavourful with lots of nutrients conserved. Stews are healthy: you can add lots of vegetables but be careful not to add too much salt, they are easy to prepare and so appetizing. Plus you can do other things while you let it stew on the stove! :)
