Vegan Saag Paneer | with Grilled Flat Bread

The first time I tried Saag Paneer I thought, “This cheese tastes very tofu-y.” So when I saw a recipe for it on Connoisseurusveg, I wondered why I hadn’t thought of that before. 🙂 She’s a genius. This came out really good, guys. It’s creamy and well flavored. The pan fried tofu works perfectly as a cheese stand in. Indian food just got a whole lot easier around my kitchen! I paired it with a really easy grilled flatbread recipe because making naan would have required some yogurt, and soy yogurt is impossible to buy here. The flatbread kept me on a vegan track! It would also be amazing with some jasmine rice. Vegan Saag Paneer recipe slightly adapted from Connoisseurusveg! Grilled Flatbread recipe slightly adapted from Food52.

A Peachy October

I recently saw a brilliant idea from an adorable blog, With All My Affection, where the blogger posted Insta snaps as a monthly recap. And as you should be reading blogs for inspiration, I will bor-row the idea and work on monthly photo recaps for my Seoul life.  🙂 October The weather got chilly. There was an increase in the kitty snuggling. I found some amazing food. I got a new kitchen corner. I experimented with a few recipes.  It was Halloween two times over with costumes for school & a night out. It was a busy month. Click on the snaps for details! Many are from Instagram. But I have a bit of a different vision for future recaps… Have a beautiful November! Are you my Facebook friend? How about Instagram? Do I sound like I’m begging? Here’s two  more: Pinterest and Twitter! ❤ you!

OM Restaurant & Bar | A Review

I would love to say that I’m so dedicated to finding amazing food that I traveled all the way from Gangnam to Samcheongdong JUST to eat Indian food I read about on the internet. Honestly, though, I love Samcheongdong so it doesn’t take much to get me up there. Sure its crazy busy but there are just so many shops and cafes and galleries…it’s basically heaven, exactly what I think about when I think about how much I love Seoul. But, lets talk about OM. First off, it’s a great name. Onomatopoeia is always awesome. The foods not half bad either. We had potato samosas, chicken tandoori and palak paneer. We added some jasmine rice, garlic naan and Phil had a strawberry lassi for kicks and giggles. The samosas were very much right up my alley. Lots of spices inside with the potato and a crispy outside. My only gripe is that there were only two. An order should come with at least three. (Opinions are solely my own. No one is paying me to express …
