Here are what I love about this scallion noodles:

One, it is an easy sauce to make. Only 4 ingredients required to make the sauce: cooking oil, scallions, soy sauce and sugar. Yes, these are all you need. Almost too easy.

 

Sriracha & Hoisin Sauce Glazed Chicken

Okay guys, I may have gotten carried away with the sriracha. Just look at the generous drizzle of sriracha over the stir fry above! This stir fry recipe was  from  the Cooking Light Complete Meals in Minutes cookbook and boy, this dish screams flavours!  You have the sweetness from the hoisin sauce, hot and tang from sriracha, spices from curry powder… these may not be your everyday ingredients combination but they worked well together.

 

4 Ingredients Coconut Pumpkin Butter

Butter with toast is such part and parcel of morning breakfast. I like my toasts to be fanciful and fun such topping with fruits and nuts or doughnut french toasts. After all, if we are going to eat carb, we better eat it like a king! Even just with a piece of toast.

Remember the homemade Nutella I made a while ago? It was such an ease to make and perfect for those who like to control the amount of sugar in a spread.  Today, I wanted to show how to make another kind of butter. It is dairy free, egg free, gluten free, vegetarian friendly and with a Malaysian twist, a nod to where I was born and bred. It’s known as coconut pumpkin butter, loosely based on my favourite childhood spread called “kaya”.
