Stove top popcorn

Posted by veggiefrog on Dec 29, 2007 in Recipes

After discovering the joys of stove top popcorn there is no way I could ever go back to the microwave kind. It is so simple to make and all you need is a large pan, I use a 5.5 quart, kernels and oil.


Start with enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan and add 3 kernels. Don’t forget to cover the pan or you will have exploding popcorn and hot oil all over your kitchen.

Heat oil in pan

These will pop when the oil is ready and you can add the remaining kernels and replace the lid. Generally a 1/3 cup of kernels works for a 5.5 quart pan, but a little experimentation and you will discover how much works for you.

Add 1/4 cup of kernels

As the kernels pop, continue to shake the pan to ensure all the loose kernels fall to the bottom and continue to heat. This keeps the kernels from sticking to the bottom and burning. Once the popping is finished, remove the pan from the heat and let is sit for a few seconds to make sure are no more last minute pop surprises, then pour into a bowl and sprinkle with salt. For the really daring who aren’t worried about artery clogging butter, add some melted butter or margarine to the top.

New Camera

Well, I finally purchased a new Digital SLR camera and it is amazing! I got the Canon 40D with a 17-85 lens along with a 100mm macro lens for closeup work. Below is one of the first photos I took with the camera. Inside, no lighting but the light from outside.

How to Cook Your Life

Posted by veggiefrog on Dec 17, 2007 in Movies

How to Cook Your LifeI saw How to Cook Your Life movie at the Carlton cinema on Dec 5. It was a good movie, not a great movie, but worth watching none the less.  It is a documentary about a Zen Buddist chef, Edward Espe Brown, who teaches Buddism through cooking and working with food.  He talks about his life and how he might not always have the patience he wishes but he realizes that he is just human.

Curried Perogies

Posted by veggiefrog on Dec 7, 2007 in Recipes

Curried Perogies

You wouldn’t think that perogies and curry would go together, but the result is scrumptious. The outside of the perogies soak up the curry flavour, while the inside potato and onion mixture doesn’t change. Make sure you use plain potato and onion perogies as potato and cheddar cheese just doesn’t work with curry.


1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp hemp oil
2 tbsp Pataks Korma Curry Paste
1 tsp tumeric
2 cups So Nice soy milk
12 frozen Potato and Onion perogies
1 cup frozen green peas

1. Fry onion in hemp oil until softened.
2. Add Pataks Curry Paste, Tumeric and slowly add soy milk to build a creamy sauce.
3. Add perogies and cook directly from frozen until cooked through.
4. Add grean peas and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
