Copycat cooking ep 5: Kale & Quinoa Salad with Dates, Almonds & Citrus Dressing

Edited on

Hello fellow blogger friends!

Salads have never been my favorite, but after trying this recipe...I LOVE SALAD!
The dates give it the perfect sweetness, and the nuts give it the perfect crunch.
Sadly my grocery store didn't have any kale, so i used parsley instead. I love parsley. And it tasted so good.
My mom is allergic to raw almonds and some cooked ones, so i decided to use cashews instead. Cashews are the best nuts, i think.

I was so scarred making this salad though, because it was my first time making quinoa, but it was really easy to make, to my surprise.

Oh, before i forget, i got a tip for you guys for chopping onions. Open a window close to you, and only breath through your mouth. This will prevent or lessen the pain, and no tears!

I really did enjoy making the salad, it felt like painting, since there was so many steps. haha..I'm strange, i know.

The dessing was amazing too!

Copycat cooking ep 4: Vegan Chocolate Custard

Edited on
Hello fellow blogger friends!
I just love chocolate. And since i went vegan in 2011 i haven't had chocolate pudding/custard, and i started to miss it. I used to love to pour whip cream all over the pudding.
Finally i saw a lovely recipe on and i didn't think this would work out...But i was wrong!
It tastes amazing. I think i would even triple the recipe next time that i'll make it.
It's super creamy, and tastes even better when it's cold.
The consistancy didn't turn out as good as Madioson's chocolate custard, though. Mine was a bit more on the liquidy side. Maybe it was because i used rice milk instead of soy milk. But it didn't matter, since it tasted so good.
Mom approved this recipe too. She was really shocked. She didn't think it would work. haha
Thanks for reading!

Copycat cooking ep 3: Hot and Sweet Sesame Tofu

Edited on

Hello fellow blogger friends!

I am so excited to post this recipe, because this is probably the best recipe i have ever tried in my entire life!
Tofu has never really been my favorite and i haven't eaten it in a year or so, so i thought i should try it again.
I really thought this would be my first fail CopyCat Cooking recipe, but man was i wrong!

It took my about 1 hour and 30 minutes to make this recipe. I should of doubled the recipe though, because it only served barely 3 people.

So while the tofu was cooking i decided to take some notes on what i changed in the recipe. Here's my notes...

¤ A good tip is instead of mixing the cornstarch with the tofu in a bowl, like it says on the recipe, place some cornstarch on a plate and take one tofu cube at the time and roll it in the cornstarch. This will prevent the tofu breaking apart.

¤ I used maple syrup instead on honey, to make it vegan. =)

¤ I used extra virgin olive oil instead of sesame oil, since it's cheaper.

My mother absolutely loves this recipe. She said it tastes like pork, and that she loves the crunch. The sauce
is also her favorite, she says it tastes like Filipino food.

This dish is perfect for dinner time, and it tastes amazing and savory.
Try it out!

Copycat cooking ep 2: Vegan Nacho “Cheese”

Edited on

Hello fellow blogger friends!

I'm back with another CopyCat Cooking recipe! This recipe is literally amazing!
So happy i found this recipe on Pinterest. When i read the ingredients on i was thinking, how will this even work?! Potatoes, carrots and nutritional yeast is basically all that you need.
I didn't even think this recipe would be good. 

While i was cooking,  i started to smell the cheesy smell from the nutritional yeast, and i got a bit more
confidence for this recipe. I even decided to double the recipe, since it didn't look like a lot.
When i was done, i was shocked on how easy this was to make. And i thought, if this tastes good, then this is the best recipe ever. And OH MY GOD it tasted AMAZING! Just like cheese, it even tasted like chicken a little bit. 
Easy and yummy...I love it.

My mom gives this recipe 5 stars, haha...

This recipe is perfect as a dip. I even added it on top of my pasta. You could also use this
on pizza, lasagna and mac & Cheese.

Definitely recommend you guys to try this.
