Take this crispy breaded cauliflower bites and turn it into a well loved Japanese street food snack: Vegan-ish Okonomiyaki Cauliflower bites. It’s 100% plant based and SO delicious! It is almost vegan!

Cauliflower Okonomiyaki

Maybe Meatless Mondays is a trend, but we try to eat less meat when it makes sense! Although I’m not a vegan by any means, I do love a delicious healthy plant-based meal any chance I get. Sometimes, it is modernizing a traditional dish with a healthier spin; sometimes, it is making delicious bite-sized snacks that makes eating plants fun and exciting like this breaded no-fry baked Japanese okonomiyaki cauliflower bites!

Breaded No-Fry Baked Cauliflower Bites

There’s nothing worse that cauliflower bites that comes out soggy. We’ve had our run with bad store-bought cauliflower buffalo wings that’s just 100% disappointing! So we started making our own. We started frying some but it was too oily. So we tried to bake cauliflower nuggets instead and they were brilliant! Baking this breaded cauliflower recipe was a success! It is totally crispy and crunchy on the outside while still being tender on the inside! Thumbs up!

Cauliflower Okonomiyaki

How to make Crispy Cauliflower Bites

The secret to making the cauliflower bites crispy and crunchy is creating the breading: panko and spices. Instead of olive oil which gets a bit thin, use maple syrup with soy sauce! Coat the cauliflower florets and then roll it around in the breaded mixture. Make sure you cut the cauliflower into large florets – this makes it easier to bake!

Set the oven at 400F for 30 mins!

Next, we layer on the creamy and rich cashew mayonnaise. Drizzle it over the crispy breaded cauliflower bites and sprinkle some Marumiya Furikake seasoning and bonito flakes. Viola! vegan-ish Okonomiyaki Cauliflower Bites!

This recipe is almost (if you omit bonito flakes) vegan, vegetarian, plant-based, and gluten-free and dairy-free1

In case you are wondering, what are bonito flakes? They are Katsuobushi. It is dried, fermented, and smoked skipjack tuna!

Ingredients

 


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into large florets and place in a large mixing bowl. See notes.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the Panko breadcrumbs with garlic powder, smoked paprika, grounded white pepper and sea salt.
  4. Add half of the maple syrup on to the cauliflower florets and toss until evenly coated but not drenched. You want a thin coat.
  5. Pour about 1/2 the dry mixture to the coated cauliflower and mix well. Repeat the process until the dry mixture evenly coats the cauliflower. 
  6. Remove breaded cauliflower from bowl and from onto a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper.)
  7. Bake the breaded cauliflower for 20-25 minutes (flipping half way at 12 minute mark) or until golden brown.
  8. Remove from pan onto a large plate immediately.
  9. Drizzle rich and creamy vegan cashew mayonnaise on top of the crispy breaded cauliflower bites.
  10. Sprinkle some Marumiya Furikake seasoning and bonito flakes (omit if you want it to be a vegan dish). 
  11. Serve and enjoy!


Notes

  • Use fresh cauliflower instead of frozen florets. Frozen florets tends to get soggy.
  • Omit bonito flakes if you want it to be a vegan dish.

Seafood Cioppino Soup

Seafood Cioppino Soup

This post is sponsored by Clearwater.ca and I have been compensated monetarily. All views and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep Nomss in the kitchen!

This rustic tomato stew is brimming with delicious fresh seafood in a tomato and wine broth that tastes like the sea. We upped it a notch by using large shrimp and fresh lobster meat! Serve with crusty bread to mop up all the soup! It’s a deeply satisfying meal that’s always a hit around here!

What is Cioppino?

Cioppino is an Italian-American fishermen’s stew that originated in San Francisco. It is a marriage of various regional fish soups and stews of Italian cuisine. This rustic tomato-enriched fish stew goes well with dry white wines. Main ingredients often include crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels and different types of firm-fleshed fish. This seafood soup is very flexible. Feel free to explore different seafood with it.

Today, I am using live lobsters. Shells to make lobster stock and meat to go into my Cioppino soup!

Serve with crusty bread to mop up all the soup! It’s a deeply satisfying meal that’s always a hit around here!

Premium Wild, Eco-Certified Seafood Online Ordering

I ordered my seafood from shop.clearwater.ca. They offer a wide range of delicious sustainable seafood products and ships high quality, premium, MSC-certified products directly to people’s doors across Canada. Option for contactless delivery for grocery shopping and avoid the disappointment of long lines at supermarkets right now.

My goods arrived neatly packaged on the day I requested with an insulated box with ice and tracking number. The lobsters were fresh and very much alive!

How do I store live lobster?

  • Lobster should always be kept wet and cold in your refrigerator until cooking time. Do not submerge lobster in fresh water or ice; simply place them in a large open container in your refrigerator and cover them with a damp cloth/paper towel.

How many days can I keep live lobster?

  • If lobster is kept cool and damp in the refrigerator and you have followed proper storage instructions, they can typically be kept for a maximum of two days (including transit time).

What I ordered

Wild Caught Canadian Sea Scallops: Sustainably harvested from the pristine waters of the Canadian North Atlantic, Clearwater’s premium frozen-at-sea scallops are 100% natural and MSC-certified. Within an hour of being h harvested from the ocean, scallops are frozen directly onboard without any additives or chemicals.

Live Lobsters: Premium Hardshell Fresh Lobsters ™ are harvested from the pristine waters of the Canadian North Atlantic. Did you know, Clearwater Premium Hardshell Fresh™ Canadian lobster yields up to 50% more meat than soft-shell lobsters?!

Raw Frozen Shell-Off Lobster Tails & Claw and Knuckle Lobster Meat: For convenience, these delicious lobster tails are easy to thaw and prepare. No pre-cooking or shucking required! I love that they are individually packaged for portion control – use and prepare only what is needed!

There are so many delicious varieties to choose from and I can’t wait to make lobster rolls, Seafood Cobb Salad with seared scallops, and maybe even try Arctic Surf Clam sushi or Smoked Salmon with cream-cheese amuse-bouche!

  • 1 medium fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 large shallots, chopped
  • 3 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1.5 cups (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes in juice
  • 1.5 cups dry white wine, more for drinking
  • 5 cups lobster stock, (or use fish stock or chicken broth see notes)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pound manila clams, scrubbed
  • 1.5 pounds assorted firm-fleshed fish fillets – halibut or salmon, skinless and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 lemon, wedged (optional)
  • 1 spring dill, for garnishing
  • 1 spring cilantro, for garnishing

 


Instructions

  1. In a heavy bottomed pot or dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat and let it simmer.
  2. Add onions, shallots and fennel and saute until the onion is translucent – about 10 minutes.
  3. Add garlic, carrots and celery and continue to saute. 
  4. Add crushed red pepper flakes.

  11. Stir in fresh herbs right before serving and some for garnishing

Notes

  1. 1. Roast the lobster shells in a rack in the upper third of the oven and bake at 450°F for 10 minutes.
  2. If you are using chicken broth and would like to add more dimension to your broth, add 2 teaspoons of anchovy paste, clam juice or a splash of fish sauce. I like using Red Boat Fish Sauce.

Not So Spicy Vegan Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐

Not So Spicy Vegan Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐

Comfort food always helps me to feel warmth. It reminds me of home and if gives me a sense of safety and belonging. Cooking this time of year helps to keep my mind off chaos. I love the feeling of manipulating food. I love playing with traditional recipes and giving it new life, a new twist – adapting to my new lifestyle such as this Not So Spicy Vegan Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐 recipe. Similar to how Grandma used to make it, yet totally different. This healthy vegetarian recipe is good for anyone looking to have a flavorful vegetarian meal. Either way, you make it you will have a delicious Chinese homey meal that is great served with plain white jasmine rice. This quick and easy recipe is ready in 15 minutes!

Instead of pork, you can easily make it vegan without compromising on flavour by using mushrooms. King oyster mushrooms are probably best for texture and mouthfeel. If you find yourself short of king oysters, button mushrooms works just as wonderful.

MAPO TOFU CALLS FOR FIVE MAIN INGREDIENTS:

I also like that it has garlic and ginger in it – it is the perfect boost for your immune, fights cold and the flu and also is antibacterial! If you fancy, dice up some onions and sautee the onions with garlic and ginger until soft and golden.

If you don’t like biting into tiny gingers, I recommend grating it.

Sichuan peppercorns are very spicy with a long lingering burn. And the black bean sauce with garlic is very salty. It is important to start with a little, taste, and adjust to your preference. Always taste throughout making this recipe.

If it is too bland, add more black bean sauce. Personally I like adding another tablespoon of sichuan peppercorn, but it is your mapo tofu, not mine.

Mission Hill Winery Estate located heart of British Columbia’s breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country is must for anyone visiting Kelowna for the first time. This trip was one that I will always remember and hold dear to my heart. The breathtaking scenery provides a great place for you to take refuge from the busyness of daily life and escape for while with a delicious glass (or bottle, we don’t judge) of wine. We came here on our second day of our Summerland road trip. After travelling from Vancouver and pre-drinking before at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, we didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. We made sure we made dinner reservations at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant for dinner later that evening.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the cheese and crackers you purchase close to you. There are many guests whom thinks it is free and communal and start reaching into your purchased food. Most are probably already intoxicated from the wine tour and wine tasting where common sense and mannerism is throw out the door.
