Simply Vietnamese 1 Highwood Avenue, Tenafly, NJ I love pho noodles. Every few weeks or so, I get an intense craving for them, especially if it’s cold or rainy out. The best place in North Jersey to get some vegan … Continue reading
Miga 344 Broad Avenue, Leonia, NJ My coworkers love Korean food so we opted to try Miga one day for lunch. Parking is only street parking but it wasn’t too hard to find a spot. The restaurant was relatively empty … Continue reading

Pancho’s Burritos 214 Main Street, New Milford, NJ 07646 I will admit that I mostly go to Pancho’s Burritos because they’re one of the only Mexican joints I know that serves vegan-friendly cheese and sour cream. I know: amazing!!! However, … Continue reading
I love creamy pasta sauce. That and vodka sauce. Also, I love cheesy sauces. Okay, I love almost any sauce but plain, old marinara if you can’t tell. Especially since at most restaurants, my only option is marinara. (boo) So, … Continue reading
I have been sick lately and therefore, why the lack of posts. My mother recently made me some plain rice congee (we call it “jook”) to calm my stomach and help me feel better.
It’s just rice, water and salt. It’s amazing because you can add whatever you want to it. I like extra white pepper, scallions, and cilantro in mine normally. My parents often add thousand year old eggs and chicken or ribs into it (obviously my parents aren’t vegan).
It really helps warm you up and make you feel better. Enjoy mother’s simple recipe.
9 Cups of Water
3/4 Cups of Rice
Salt / Soy Sauce
- Cook the rice in the water until it’s at a boil.
- Then put the heat on a medium setting while lifting the top off a bit so it can let some steam out.
- After about an hour and the rice water mixture looks like a porridge, add salt and soy sauce to your liking.
- Add any additional toppings as you’d like.
- Serve and feel better!
