Szechuan Vegan Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐

Szechuan Vegan Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐

Szechuan Vegan Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐 – meet this classic and innovative modern take on this Chinese dish. It has a nice firm bite that goes really well with the creamy softness of tofu with extra lip-tingling heat from Szechuan peppercorns!

Szechuan Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐

Call it Vegan Mapo Tofu 2.0. After our Not So Spicy Mapo Tofu recipe shared not too long ago made with mushrooms, I decided to make this classic home-cooked Chinese Cantonese dish with plant-based burger patties. I used Impossible Foods plant-based patty for a healthier vegetarian mapo tofu version. Quick, easy recipe in 15 minutes Chinese recipe!

If you feel like you need an extra dose of veggies, add some diced carrots. Make sure to cook it thoroughly until softened. The worst thing is biting into mapo tofu with hard crunchy pieces.

The amount of heat you want in this dish is entirely up to you! Sichuan peppercorns are very spicy with a long lingering burn. And the black bean sauce with garlic is very salty. It is important to start with a little, taste, and adjust to your preference. Always taste throughout making this recipe.

If it is too bland, add more black bean sauce. Personally I like adding another tablespoon of sichuan peppercorn, but it is your mapo tofu, not mine.

THE BEST BLACK VINEGAR PIG TROTTER AND GINGER RECIPE 豬腳薑醋 | CHINESE PIG FEET POSTPARTUM RECIPE

A must-have postpartum dish for new moms and a wonderful winter dish to boost the immune, improve Qi, replenish and warm the blood, expel cold and dampness, and restore vitality to the body! Chinese Pig Trotter with Black Vinegar and Ginger 豬腳薑醋 is recommended for women’s health and well being and is a beautiful dish to replenish calcium and boost collagen!

There is a lot of collagen from the pig trotter, its bones, and the hard-boiled egg. This sweet black vinegar and ginger stew aid vitality. This stew can be reboiled multiple times. Add extra black vinegar, hard-boiled eggs, pork trotters and even beef tendon! The flavours just gets better over time!

Black Vinegar Pork Trotter During Pregnancy Benefits

This Chinese tradition, called the magic of a month of rest, “sitting moon,” “sitting the month or Zuo Yuezi goes back for centuries. This month directly after childbirth is crucial for new mothers and their children. Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicinal theories, a woman can rebuild their health during this critical recovery time! All old ailments could be made new provided proper care.

Before pregnancy, my hands and feet would be super cold, especially during the winter months. Fast forward postpartum with proper postpartum confinement, I no longer experience those symptoms. I feel healthier and stronger albeit still very sleep deprived!

Women have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis and broken bones than men of the same age group because women have smaller and thinner bones than men. Between age 20 to 80, women lose one-third of the bone mineral density. So it is crucial to replenish lost vitamins and minerals early on.

THE BEST BLACK VINEGAR PIG TROTTER AND GINGER RECIPE 豬腳薑醋 | CHINESE PIG FEET POSTPARTUM RECIPE

Chinese Ginger Vinegar Benefits

The citric acid from the black vinegar aids metabolism and cholesterol reduction. Ginger helps digestion, improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body. Ginger also helps warm the body up, improve the spleen and digestive system, restores Qi and Yang energy, treats anemia, weakness, tiredness, and etc.

I’ve always loved this dish because of the ginger aroma and the sweet and sour taste. Black vinegar contains many essential amino acids. Amino acids help repair muscle tissue and nail growth. Black vinegar helps to balance our body’s PH levels by neutralizing lactic acid and alkalizing the blood. Every winter, I will eat a pot of Chinese Pig Knuckles with Black Vinegar and Ginger to help fight ageing.

How to Cook the Best Black Vinegar Pork Trotters

Making the best pig trotter stew with black vinegar and ginger is actually very simple. But it takes time. Usually, I will allow myself two days to prepare this. Some recipes online condense the process into one sitting, but this is one that I’ve grown with. 

My grandma also emphasizes using both young and old ginger. She says you want the hotness from old ginger and the aroma from young ginger. 

You will want to both slice and bruise the ginger. Bruise and pound the ginger with a meat mallet or the side of your blade.

Most people do not put red dates in their stew, but personally, I like to add a few for that extra sweetness. Chinese red dates have many health benefits such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron and magnesium. Red dates are antioxidants and help stimulate the production of white blood cells. The iron and phosphorus in red dates also help prevent osteoporosis and anemia, both common in women.

I hope you like this recipe and enjoy some warmth during the cold winter months! How do you usually stay warm? Let us know in the comments below.

What is Taiwanese Braised Pork Belly Rice?

Taiwanese Braised Pork Belly Rice is sometimes known as Minced Pork Rice. This infamous dish is iconic to Taiwanese cuisine. It is the ultimate comfort food made using pork belly braised in a savoury-sweet umami sauce. Nonetheless, this dish is heavy and quite fatty.
To make this dish healthier without losing its identity, we used tempeh. We like using tempeh from Tempea.

tempeh

WHAT IS TEMPEH?

Tempeh (tempe) is a fermented soybean product that Indonesians like to use in traditional Indonesian cuisine. Tempeh uses a mould culture called Rhizopus. It produces a white outer layer as the mould’s mycelia spread and grow in and around each soybean. As a result, this network of mycelia is what holds the product together into a patty-like consistency.

Unlike tofu, it has a firmer, “meatier” texture with a savoury, nutty flavour profile.

We like using tempeh made by Tempea – made using certified organic, non-GMO soybeans!

Thoroughly cook your unpasteurized tempeh with an internal temperature of 165° F (75° C). Do not eat raw tempeh.

tempeh

HEALTH BENEFIT OF TEMPEH

Tempeh is a rich source of plant-based protein and fibre that is low in saturated fat, free of trans fat, cholesterol-free, and sodium-free. It is also an excellent source of iron and calcium and may increase bone density and prevent bone loss. Fermented foods have probiotics that promote good gut health!

Do not consume tempeh that exhibits signs of spoilage: off odours, soft, mushy texture, pink discoloration, dark brown coffee-like beans, slimy or sticky texture.

tempeh

How To Cook Tempeh?

There are various ways to cook the tempeh. Some people like to steam it, and some people like to grill or pan fry thinly-slice tempeh.

I prefer to break up tempeh pieces in a boiling pot of water for ten minutes with 1/2 teaspoon salt to remove the bitterness.

How to Cook Vegan Taiwanese Braised “Pork Belly”

You do not need to marinate tempeh ahead of time for this Taiwanese “Pork Belly” Rice recipe because you will be braising the tempeh on the non-frying pan.

save $10 when you purchase an Always Pan with this link

We love using our Oprah approved Always Pan (save $10 when you purchase an Always Pan with this link).

This essential cooking pan is ceramic non-stick made without PFOAS and PTFES. I love the modular lid to release and trap steam effectively, perfect for braising recipes – sautee first and braising after.

Sautee the tempeh with garlic, ginger, finely chopped green onions, chilli peppers for a few minutes.

Next, add in your marinade sauce: dark soy, light soy, Shaoxing wine, rock sugar, honey, soy packet and water. For convenience, I like using Vietnamese spice for beef pho soy packs. You can purchase this at any Asian supermarket or online. Alternatively, you can use a five spice spice mix combination of Szechuan peppercorns, cloves, cumin, star anise and cinnamon.

Braise the tempeh at low heat for 30 minutes.

While the tempeh is braising, cook a pot of rice in your rice cooker. For this recipe, perhaps the most crucial ingredient is a hot bowl of white jasmine rice. Scoop the braised tempeh and sauce onto the rice and serve!

I bet you can not just eat one bowl of rice with this vegan braised tempeh recipe!

Mission Hill Winery Estate located heart of British Columbia’s breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country is must for anyone visiting Kelowna for the first time. This trip was one that I will always remember and hold dear to my heart. The breathtaking scenery provides a great place for you to take refuge from the busyness of daily life and escape for while with a delicious glass (or bottle, we don’t judge) of wine. We came here on our second day of our Summerland road trip. After travelling from Vancouver and pre-drinking before at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, we didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. We made sure we made dinner reservations at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant for dinner later that evening.

Upon arriving you are greeted at the gate with beautiful grapes and a stunning view. Even on a cloudy day, the view is mesmerizing. We sat on the grass for a long while talking nonsense, life and just soaking up God’s creation.

After all the wine tasting and touring I was ready to spend my $5 voucher and indulge on flights. 3 for $10 or any single for $4. If you purchase two bottles from the selected list, you can enjoy one tasting also. I really enjoyed their 06 SLC Chard and their SLC Syrah.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the cheese and crackers you purchase close to you. There are many guests whom thinks it is free and communal and start reaching into your purchased food. Most are probably already intoxicated from the wine tour and wine tasting where common sense and mannerism is throw out the door.

And after all that wine drinking you can join us at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant to indulge in some seafood and steak.
