茶葉蛋 Chinese Tea Leaf Eggs

I love eggs. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A fried egg over Chinese take out would make a wonderful late night snack too! It would be like Christmas whenever my parent’s cooked some eggs. The funny thing is my 3 year old daughter, would not come near the kitchen if eggs were on the menu! SMH!

Tea Leaf Eggs 茶葉蛋 is a traditional Chinese appetizer and often paired with a bowl of rice or served on its own.

The tea eggs have a beautiful marbled surface and are rich in umami flavours after being bathing in a savoury marinade consisting of light and dark soy sauce, star anisecinnamonSichuan peppercorns, shaoxing wine and of course black tea leaves.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST TEA LEAF EGGS

The question often asked is ‘should I make my tea eggs with hard or soft boiled eggs?’ I often find that store bought tea leaf eggs are overcooked and has a rubbery texture, and maybe even a chalky green rim around the yolk.

If the Japanese ajitama ramen egg and the Chinese tea leaf egg had a baby, that would be the perfect marbled tea leaf egg! It would be half-way runny and thickened with a longer marinade of two to three days.

Cooking the eggs to a soft boiled egg doneness is pretty ingenious (unless you are making these Chinese Deviled Eggs with Pork Floss and Nori!)

The Momofuku Soy Sauce eggs ask that you carefully put the eggs into the boilding water and cook for exactly 6 minutes and 50 seconds, stirring slowly for the first 1 1/2 minutes to distribute the heat evenly; then followed by a quick ice bath.

I personally prefer the 63-degree egg method! It is fail safe and a perfect creamy unctuous texture oozes out when my knife pierces the egg. Every time!

  1. Simply cook your eggs in a sous vide machine (like this one).
  2. Bring the water to a constant 63 degrees Celsius (145.4 degrees Fahrenheit)
  3. Submerge your eggs in a sous-vide safe plastic bag and let the eggs hang out there for an hour.

HOW TO PROPERLY CRACK THE EGGS

Once the eggs are cooled, lightly crack the egg shells by tapping it with the back of a spoon. Be careful and don’t fully break the shell. You simply want the egg shells slightly cracked to let the marinade seep through to infuse and marble the eggs.

THE MARINADE

While the egg in its water bath, I would prepare the marinade with a few pantry staples – black tea bags or loose leaf tea, light and dark soy sauce, star anisecinnamonSichuan peppercorns, shaoxing wine, bay leaves, sugar, salt and water. Adding a few slices of ginger would also add a nice punch.

Swap out soy sauce for tamari; and sugar for maple syrup for a gluten-free alternative.

Add all the ingredients to a medium pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes and remove from heat. Let cool completely, discard the tea bags and set aside.

Once the eggs are ready, gently submerge the eggs into the marinade. Avoid dropping them in. They may break if you drop them into the pot. I like to transfer everything to a covered container and refrigerate two to three days. The egg yolk will start to thicken and turn a beautiful light brownish yellow colour.

WHAT TO DO WITH THE LEFTOVER MARINADE

If stored properly, you can use the marinade more then once. If you plan on reusing the liquid, remember to boil the liquid again and let cool. Always use a clean spoon.

Description

茶葉蛋 Chinese Tea Leaf Eggs are delicious, fragrant and ridiculously effortless to make! Make these perfect creamy unctuous texture soft-boiled marbled eggs in just 10 minutes –  gluten-free adaptable!

 


Scale

Ingredients


Instructions

Bring the eggs to room temperature by leaving them out of the refrigerator for 20 mins.

 

Preparing the Marinade

  1. In a small pot, add all the ingredients except the eggs. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce to low-medium heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Once done, remove and discard the tea bags. 
  3. Set aside and let cool completely.

 

Cooking the Eggs (Stovetop Method)

  1. Boil a large pot of water. 
  2. Carefully place the eggs into the boiling water and cook for exactly 6 minutes and 50 seconds. Stirring slowly to distribute heat evenly for the first minute.
  3. While the eggs are cooking, fill a large bowl with ice and cold water.
  4. Transfer the eggs to the ice bath to cool.

 

Cooking the Eggs (Sous Vide Method)

 

  1. Cook your eggs in a sous vide machine (like this one).
  2. Bring the water to a constant 63 degrees Celsius (145.4 degrees Fahrenheit)
  3. Submerge your eggs in a sous-vide safe plastic bag and let the eggs hang out there for an hour.

 

 

Marinating the Eggs

 

  1. Once the eggs are cool, gently crack the eggs by tapping the shell with the back of a spoon. The eggs are still very soft, if you crack it too hard, you may break the eggs.
  2. Make sure the eggs shells are cracked enough so the marinade can seep into inside and marble the eggs. You can also opt to peel the eggs and marinate the eggs without any shells.
  3. Place the cracked eggs into a container, then pour the marinade in until the eggs are completely submerged.
  4. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Marinate longer for two to three days if you prefer a thicker egg yolk. The eggs will become more flavourful and saltier over time.

Green Papaya Salad

  • Author: Angus An
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 5
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 persons 1x
  • Category: appetizer, salad
  • Method: Raw, Toss
  • Cuisine: Thai

Description

GREEN PAPAYA SALAD IS, by far, the most popular dish among Thai people. It’s most commonly portioned for one person, but is also easily shared as an appetizer between two or three. The simplicity, robust flavours, sharpness, and balance of this salad make it a perfect ambassador for Thai cuisine, and it highlights the full spectrum of Thai flavours: hot, sour, sweet, and salty. There are countless regional variants of this dish, but this is the classic version, also known as som dtam thai.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 23 red Thai bird’s eye chilies 1-2 garlic cloves
  • Pinch of coarse sea salt 2 Tbsp palm sugar
  • 2 Tbsp dried prawns
  • 1 Tbsp roasted peanuts, skinned
  • 1 Tbsp Tamarind Water (page 233)
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice Fish sauce, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded green papaya
  • 1/8 cup sliced long beans, cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, halved 2 Tbsp shredded carrot

 


Instructions

  1. Using a mortar and pestle, pound the chilies and garlic together into a fine paste, using a pinch of salt as an abrasive. Add the palm sugar, dried prawns, and roasted peanuts, and pound everything together until it becomes a coarse paste. Add the tamarind water, lime juice, and fish sauce to complete the dressing, and stir with the pestle until fully incorporated.
  2. Add the green papaya, long beans, cherry tomatoes, and carrot and pound lightly to bruise and soften them so they can absorb the dressing, then toss to combine with the paste. Alternatively, if your mortar and pestle isn’t large enough to handle all the ingredients, you can use a pestle with a large mixing bowl for the vegetables. The finished salad should taste sour, salty, lightly sweet, and hot.

 



Notes

  • It’s common for most Thai kitchens to have more than one kind of mortar and pestle. For this recipe, look for a clay mortar with a wooden pestle or a wooden mortar and pestle combination. They’re commonly used by Thai street vendors specifically for making green papaya salad, and they prevent you from overpounding the vegetables while still bruising them enough to absorb the dressing.

How To Grow Alfalfa Sprouts at Home

How To Grow Alfalfa Sprouts at Home

I’ve spent so much money buying alfalfa sprouts from the grocery stores without realizing how easy it is to grow alfalfa sprouts at home! Growing radish sprouts at home is just as easy! All you need are some alfalfa or radish seeds, a mason jar and a cheesecloth!

How To Grow Alfalfa & Radish Sprouts at Home

During this time, we spent more at home, we’ve started growing our food in our little backyard garden and cooking more. We’ve limited our trips to the grocery store with high-quality contactless food deliveries.

Nonetheless, we were still buying alfalfa sprouts because we loved the taste of fresh crunchy sprouts in our salads and sandwiches – like this smoked salmon sandwich with dill cream cheese!

Each little package of store bought alfalfa sprouts costs around C$5 – it is really, really expensive!

Sprouting your own seeds at home is very simple and economical! It is not complicated at all!

In fact, half pound bag of organic alfalfa sprouting seeds only costs around C$18 to $20 and all you need for each use is around 2 tablespoon of alfalfa sprouting seeds or organic radish sprouting seeds!

This is much more economical and tastes just as delicious! Now I know exactly what I put in growing my sprouts – organic sprouting seeds and water! That’s it! No pesticides or harmful chemicals!

Health Benefits of Alfalfa Sprouts

  • lower cholesterol and blood sugar control
  • high content of antioxidants
  • vitamins C and K, copper, folate and magnesium
  • aids digestion and bowel movements

How to Grow Organic Sprouts at Home

Growing organic sprouting seeds at home is easy. Alfalfa seeds is one of the fastest and easiest seeds to sprout. If you are a first-timer, I would recommend you start with alfalfa seeds or radish seeds. Of course, you can try other seeds like organic spring mix, broccoli, clover, mustard seeds, etc.

Different seeds tastes differently and has different nutritional benefits! I have few bags of different sprouting seeds that I like to mix my own sprouts blend.

Equipment Required

You don’t need fancy equipment to sprouts at home. You can grow sprouts with just a large mason glass jar, cheesecloth and an elastic band. Personally, I prefer to use a wide mouth mason jar sprouting lid. You can also use a tiered seed sprouter tray like this one if you want to get real serious! However, growing great sprouts only requires just a mason jar!

How to Soak & Sprout Nuts, Seeds, Grains, & Beans

Soaking and sprouting is very easy. The method also applies to nuts, seeds, grains and beans – the only difference is the time required for full germination changes.

Soak your seeds overnight for best results. It makes the sprouting process much quicker!

Add a pinch of sea salt (approximately 1/2 tsp) will help to prevent harmful bacteria from growing on the sprouts!

Always consume sprouts within a few days. Keep them fresh and stored the fridge. Sprouts can be subject to contamination and bacterial growth such as E.coli. If you see any signs of rot, quickly discard and do not ingest!

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.

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.
