For my memory, I think I haven’t posted any rice dish before, except risotto.
This is an easy fusion dish, mix up with pesto sauce with fried rice. Why do I use kale? Mainly because basil is too expensive for me for a few leaves. So I get the kale instead and it is on sale! I can keep a few more pennies in my pocket. :p
In addition, this pesto sauce has so many health benefits to share. Such as full of folic acid, add walnuts with it can give us the omega 3, which protects our brain cells. Also, it is so delicious on spaghetti as well, I’m planning to make it for my tomorrow dinner.
Kale Pesto Fried Rice
2 cups Kale leaves only, stems removed
A large handful Toasted walnuts
1/4 cup Nutritional yeast flakes
1 tsp Sea salt
2 cloves garlic, chopped (I haven’t used it)
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil, more or less
In a food processor or high-speed blender, combine the kale leaves first for the first 2 minutes. Then add the other ingredients except for the olive oil. When the motor running, drizzle the olive oil in slowly through the hole. Blend it all until a smooth sauce. Store in a clean jar and top up with more olive oil and store in the fridge.
Then fry the rice in a hot work with a bit more oil and add the pesto sauce. Mix evenly and add some sweetcorn or garden peas if you like.
All About Chinese New Year Cake & Snack from Previous Years
Let me say Happy Chinese New Year to you guys, it is on this Friday, 16th of Feb, 2018, the year of Dog. Just 2 days after Valentine’s day! It should be really busy for all the Asian family already, the lady in the house obviously!
I just start to take action from today. But all the schedule and planning I have done before the last two weeks. Why? Is that serious? I can tell you the answer is YES! All I need to plan is how many stuff I’ll prepare, also my own vegan food as well.
This year I haven’t got time to try something new but I still loyal to my cake from all the past years. You can see how busy I am! Wish you all love them! ♥♥♥ Happy Chinese New Year, all the best wishes and good health to you all! 🙂
It is a rare chance that I’ll make this ‘seitan’. Since I saw lots of my Facebook friend’s post ~ Roasted vegan ‘Char Siu’ 素叉燒 . Their mouth-watering photos impulse me to try it again.
Sounds I did have this experiment before. Yes! I have but not really like it at all. Why? Because it’ll wash away a lot of flour to get a small amount of seitan to make bbq ‘pork’. It is not really economical.
Slow Cook Kale & Butternut Squash Dal (羽衣甘藍 & 南瓜, 印度豆)
Dal or dhal is a dried pulse which has been split. The outer hull is usually stripped off; dal that has not been hulled is described as chilka (skin), e.g. chilka urad dal, mung dal chilka.
Dhal is the Indian staple made from split pulses. They’re high in fibre, full of good protein, low in calories, fat-free, quick and easy to cook, reasonable cheap, substantial, versatile and delicious. It can serve with rice or naan bread. The chana dhal, an Indian chickpea, used most often to make dhal in India. But now, most of the people use the yellow split peas, red or green lentil instead. Split peas will give a slightly creamier dhal. If you can’t find fresh curry leaves, you can use frozen one like me.
Hi, everyone, can I ask you all one of the questions? Will you randomly make something by your mood and without any instruction nor any recipe sometimes, I do! Actually, lots of time just depends on my feeling and adjust by my taste bud. I won’t mark down all the measurement on a piece of paper, I just too lazy and too much fuss for me, why should I do that? I have no idea, :p . Continue reading →
Since the Thai have their popular coconut milk rice with mango, they’re decent, but I guess that is a bit sweet for me. But today I am preparing this coconut rice, that is one of my favourite Indian food, it’s lighter, also full of aroma and spice, the main factor is not too heavy.
Nothing much will do for tonight, and haven’t plan of anything, so try to find something to occupy and interesting to spent. Then I went to the supermarket and browse around to see anything attract me, and I found one of this: Fennel on the bargain corner.
