Khmer (Cambodian) Cuisine?

Hi! I was wondering if anyone knew any vegan Khmer recipes?

I've found this website which has some vegan recipes on it, but I figured I'd post a request here anyways in case you guys know of any resources I don't know about.

According to one website I looked at, samlor kakou (green vegetable curry) is another common vegetarian dish in Cambodia, but I can't seem to find a recipe for it, so if anyone has one, I'd love to see it. I'm also looking for soups, main dishes, and desserts, so if you have any recipes at all that you're willing to share, that'd be awesome :)

Thanks!

my very exciting breakfast

hi guys. this morning i had the best breakfast ever. i made an faux egg (tofu)/sausage/potato dish which was just incredible. the potatoes were prepared already. i used Lamb Weston Inland Valley's roasted red skin potatoes with garlic and rosemary, found in the frozen foods aisle. you can substitute your own sliced and seasoned potatoes- or just buy them in a bag like i did. :)

amy's tasty and healthy breakfast!

the stepsCollapse )
once done, you are ready to sit down and eat the most flavorful and exciting breakfast so far this month! i would say this makes 4 satisfying servings or 2 voracious appetite servings.

for those health-conscious folk like myself, here is what a fourth serving of your skillet will contain:

267.5 calories, 13 grams of fat, 17.7 grams carbs, 4 grams fiber, and 16.7 grams of protein. i would accompany this meal with a glass of juice and an apple, cut into slices. the apple helps to increase the amount of fiber in this meal by 5 grams. :)

i wish i could show you guys a picture- it looked and tasted so great!!

question about chocolate syrup (Ahlaska)

I just made a chocolate tofu pie this morning (you know the one where you blend in the blender and pour in a graham pie crust) and thought I'd be crafty and drizzle some of that Ahlaska chocolate syrup on it. I did it and it looked really nice and fancy because I did it in a criss-cross fashion however after a couple of minutes the chocolate syrup lines spread out and after having put it in the fridge it's just not as pretty as I would have liked (envisioned)

SO my question for the community is what are your techniques? Would you have let it chill in the refrigerator PRIOR to drizzling chocolate or would doing that not make the chocolate drizzles stick? Tell me your secrets to this! I want to make pretty desserts

temporary stay.

I will be staying with a friend of mine fairly soon. I will be at his house for four days. He is not vegan, and his fridge basically has condiments and frozen meaty pot pies in it.

I will be stopping at Whole Foods and buying groceries, but I'm wondering what to get? I reluctant to spend money on things that I usually have in the house (like vegenaise, earth balance and other vegan substitutes) because they are a little pricey and I probably couldn't eat them all in four days, and he won't eat them after I leave.

Help me plan a shopping list (total cost of groceries being under $50 could be great) and some meals.

He does not have a microwave, spices beyond salt and pepper, and limited cookware. We're talking a frying pan, a small saucepan and maybe (he's not sure) a baking dish. I suck at cooking rice without a rice cooker.

I know I can count on you guys. Help me!

In a food ditch.

Any ideas for fillings for "hot pockets"? I'm going to make a yeast-leavened dough, roll it out, cut it with heart shaped cookie cutters and need something to put inbetween. I'm then baking them and freezing them, to microwave for lunches on the go.

Also. I am in such a food ditch. I feel like everything I eat is heavy and tomato-y or heavy and indian or god knows what. I want something light and fresh, or just something different. I also need a good and interesting challenge. And I'm a typical poor college student. :P

easiest cake ever

Peach Cake

- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 29 ounce can peach slices in syrup
- 1/2 stick margarine or a couple tablespoons of vegan butter

Grease 9x13 casserole dish. Combine cake mix with fruit and pour into dish. Slice the margarine into little pats and dot them along the top of the batter. (It doesn't have to cover every inch).

Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, approximately 1 hour.

You could also make this with chocolate cake mix and cherry pie filling, or white cake mix with blueberry pie filling. You don't have to ice this, these suckers are sweet enough.
