Meatless Monday – Bircher Muesli

  I’ve been a bit sick in the last couple of weeks, so cooking and blogging a Meatless Monday recipe that doesn’t look like soupy sludge was a bit of a challenge.

Meatless Monday – Okra Belachan

I decided to blog about this particular recipe in the mistaken belief that this was a childhood dish. Turned out that Okra is not an ingredient I grew up with in Indonesia, and this was further confirmed when Mum gave me a puzzled look when I asked how often we ate okra when I was… Continue reading Meatless Monday – Okra Belachan
