VEGETABLE SORTI

More than a thousand years ago Hipprocrates wrote: “Everything that we take to us affects the body and changes it in a certain way, and the whole life depends on these changes, wether you are healthy, sick or convalescent.”

In addition, another aspect is significant, the new diversity seems to combat typical disease patterns in the industrialized countries such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes and cancer.  We are encouraged to adaptour diet to the modern lifestyle. Daily exercise is important. Healthy eating is important too, the right choices of food and the correct way of prepping it.

Another variety of PUMPKIN. – iCookiTravel

Pumpkin 🎃 or in german- “Kürbis” which is known to most people from Halloween rather than the local menu, is a vegetable that is available throughout the year at the supermarket. In winter, the so-called winter pumpkin, including the giant pumpkin, which is use on Halloween and carved into creepy grimaces. Pumpkin 🎃 contains quite large amount of water because of this, it has a low calorie content and is eaten with diets. An exception, however, is the Hokkaido pumpkin, which has nearly three times as many kilocalories as the yellow ones.

CRISPY CRUNCHY FRIED SHRIMPS

The title says it all, “Crispy crunchy fried shrimps” from my kitchen! My son’s favorite, he could finish a kilo of this dish. Seasoned shrimp with salt, deep in a batter and fry it. You can also coat with cornflakes or bread crumbs if you prefer, before frying.

BRAISED PORK RIBS

That was hubby’s lunch, braised pork ribs. The meat is allowed to absorb the flavors during braising. Inspired by the classic teriyaki dish.  Just cut the pork spare ribs, brown them in hot vegetable oil, add finely chopped onions, garlic, and ginger, season with salt, pepper, soy sauce, hot chilli sauce or sambal oelek if you prefer, sweet and sour chille sauce, a little bit vinegar, ginger powder and brown sugar, pour in about two cups of water, bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for an hour and a half., until meat is tender. Serve with hot rice! GUTEN APPETIT!
If that’s not easy, I don’t know what is. 🙂

MY VERSION OF BURGERS with TOFU and GROUND MEAT

This is onother request by my daughter who’s craving for tofu burgers.
Kid friendly BURGER Recipe: This quick, easy, burger recipe is a sure way to get your kids or anyone else to eat tofu. Tofu burgers hold together well, and are great for grilling too.
For a light meal, skip the bun, and serve tofu with ground meat burger patties with steamed veggies or a salad. Here I serve it with fresh mix salad and garlic-yoghurt sauce or dessing, my family loves it very much specially the 2 kids.

TOFU and GROUND MEAT BURGERS – iCookiTravel

A Tip from me,— use leftover burger mix to make sloppy joes, or scambled tofu. Cold burger patties make great sandwiches. Improvise freely with the seasonings and the grains. But if you want onions, use them on the outside, not the inside – they make the mixture too wet.

YOU NEED…….

* 6pcs. extra firm Tofu
* 75g ground meat Pork or Beef (Optional, I added because of my kids preference)
* 1/4 c whole wheat flour or corn flour
* 1 tsp thyme, dried
* 1 tsp coriander or cilantro, dried or powder
* 1/2 tsp garlic powder
* 1/4 tsp ginger powder
* 2 tbsps Soy sauce
* 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp pepper
* 1 egg
* some Canola or any vegetable oil for frying

FOR GARLIC-YOGHURT SAUCE OR DRESSING:
* 2 cups of Yoghurt
* 4 cloves Garlic, minced
* 1 tsp. Garlic powder
* some white pepper powder
* some salt

BEANS SPROUTS AND TOFU

Mung bean sprouts are germinated by leaving them watered with 4 hours of daytime light and spending the rest of the day in the dark. Mung bean sprouts can be grown under artificial light for 4 hours over the period of a week.
A very simple recipe after a week of meat!

Here is another version of mine more richer in Tofu and togue. Same procedure of course!
