Some pictures of meals I cooked at home last month..

Before I start I have to mention I bought a whole sack of onions because it was cheaper than just buying three pieces and I like onions. So pretty much everything I cooked had onion in it. It is an awesome vegetable and very diverse as well.

Five spice silk tofu with garlic bukchoy

There's rice underneath!

Weird soup with tofu, shrimp, turnip..

Bukchoy, mushrooms..

Japanese Udon noodles


I was not impressed with this flavored tofu. Plain tofu next time.

French-toast-Grilled-Cheese-Sandwich with mushrooms (and onion.. )

Making lentils soup. Starting with small bits of bacon, with carrots and onions

Cooking with the lentils until they are very soft. That point is usually where you mix with a hand mixer, which I don't have... So I just tried to squeeze it all with a spoon and a strainer. It turned out "masabaha" style.

Adding cream of course!

Yum, great with my favorite baguette

Pork balls with mushrooms

Soy glazing

Not bad

Israeli thinly sliced salad with yogurt-blue cheese dressing

Passed by the "subway" one day and it made me want to make a great sandwich my own. I put pretty much everything there, thinly sliced of course: ham, cheese, onions, tomatoes, cucumber, pesto sauce and garlic-mayo sauce. Better than Subway. I miss Israeli salted cucumbers, which are the best.

Mini raviolis with ham and cheese sauce

Looks like a mess! but it was tasty

Crepe brunch, when I had to use the milk before it goes bad, this was the solution. A yummy solution.

Chevre, tomato, onion and grated Swiss cheese classic crepe.

As well with a raw Zucchini-onion-apple salad (I love my mandoline!)

Dim-sum I bought frozen in China town got me hooked, I love these steamed little surprises. Easy and fast meal with vinegar-soy dipping. You can find a very good quality shrimp filled dumplings for about 9-10 euro per kilo!

      Certainty this is not the case. Baguette is taken very seriously here. I will try to write a post about the subject ๐Ÿ™‚

    in the last photo – it looks like the shrimp escaped from dumplings… what gives?

    • Mashav says:

      It was a mix of dumplings and shrimps just like that… It’s nice to eat them simply steamed.
