About this Cook
I have no hometown. Spain is the last country I lived in that had a significant impact on all aspects of my life. I've lived in the US, Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Spain and now Australia. I enjoy learning languages and traveling. I'm very artistic and love making things for people- that's where food comes !
My favorite things to cook
Everything healthy and vegetarian! Stir-fries, curries, casseroles, tarts, bakes, creamy soups and appetizers.
My cooking triumphs
One of my proudes moments was when I made a fabulous 2-course meal for my boyfriend's family and they loved it. They are usually skeptical when it comes to meatless,pasta-less dinner. Homemade cucumber-yoghurt salad salad dressing wtih fresh greens topped with oven baked croutons, Mediterranean Crpes and Spinach Barley topped with a hint of grated Roman Cheese. I blew all of them away!
My cooking tragedies
My first year of college I wanted to impress my new boyfriend with a homecooked dinner, instead of the usual cafeteria fare. I worked hard planning the menu: Potato and cheese puff pastries (which I burnt), mexican rice (which I over cooked) and tomato-noodle soup (which I accidently dumped a whole shaker of salt into). I spent the whole evening apologizing for the meal!

Tofu and Noodle Coconut-Curry Soup
instead of using spaghetti, definately use your choice of thick asian noodles and an asian-inspired kick!

Curried Zucchini Soup
For a creamier version try adding fat-free sour cream after blending. Or blended silken tofu (and vegetable stock of course!) for a protien rich vegan version.

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)
I just tried out this recipe and it was pretty tasty. I modified it a bit because I forgot to print out the recipe. I chopped the eggplant in small pieces and simmered them in chopped onions, garlic, olive oil, chopped tomatoes, cumin, coriander and ginger. Then I more or less pureed it with a hand blender and then added the plain yogurt. I then served it over steamed vegetables and brown rice. Your recipe came out great nonetheless.
