One of my biggest pet peeves is when people try to take something that I’ve personally claimed as my own. My sister did exactly that by proclaiming that she was the cook of the house (besides, my mother, of course). I don’t know if it’s just me being possessive or whatever, but girl. Please tell me who’s the one who owns the food blog.
Just no. Absolutely not.
However, I do admit that sometimes I learn from her about cooking. While I am the most discipline in the house, she is pretty health conscious and loves to find healthy and wholesome recipes to make together. We’ve even teamed up to make some pretty killer creations, such as these flourless brownies and gluten free chocolate chip cookies! These curried shirataki noodles are no different, either. They turned out even better than I could have ever imagined!
One thing we do have to work on is cleaning up the kitchen together. I end up doing most of the cleaning, which in turn results in me being the tidier sister. Not a bad thing unless if you’ve turned the kitchen upside down (I tend to do that a lot on my own by the way!). Anyhow in all seriousness, cooking with my sister is a great way for us to spend more time together. We get along pretty well in the kitchen when we’re not discussing politics or any of that ish.
Lastly, I do want to say that I made the kung pao seitan I served my noodles with too, but in reality, I purchased it from Erewhon Organics that night. You’ll have to ask them if you want the recipe–which you should because it was hella gooooooooood.
RECIPE (serves two)
