VEGAN PLANT-BASED EARL GREY SHORTBREAD COOKIES

VEGAN PLANT-BASED EARL GREY SHORTBREAD COOKIES

These plant-based vegan shortbread cookies are delicious and more comfortable with making than most cookies. It comes together in 30 minutes and is a holiday must! You can make many variations with these sweet, buttery finger cookies, but my favourite are these fragrant robust Vegan Plant-Based Earl Grey Shortbread Cookies! Gluten-free and refined sugar-free option.

VEGAN PLANT-BASED EARL GREY SHORTBREAD

Some people swear to use only butter for the best flavour and results. Every time I see recipes asking for 2 cups of butter, I shudder. Even though I adore shortbread cookies, I’m automatically calculating how long I need to run to burn off the calories every time I think of how much butter is in them!

I used to buy these expensive shortbread cookies from a coffee shop next to my hairdresser’s salon. I have a weak spot for them. Those chubby little shortbread fingers were delicious with coffee. 

Healthy Plant-Based Vegan, Gluten-Free, Refined-Sugar-Free Options

For a healthier take on making shortbread cookies, I used Becel plant-based “butter” for a vegan base. You can also choose Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose flour if you want to make these cookies gluten-free. Use organic maple syrup in place of granulated sugar if you want it to be refined-sugar-free too!

VEGAN PLANT-BASED EARL GREY SHORTBREAD

To make these simple shortbread cookies more fragrant and enjoyable, I infused Vanilla Earl Grey tea leaves into the cookie dough. Grind the whole tea leaves in a coffee grinder with a spice grinder accessory kit until finely powdered. 1 1/2 tablespoons should do the trick without overpowering the cookies!

Feel free to use your favourite tea leaves, hojicha tea powder or organic matcha green tea powder as a substitutes. Genmaicha green tea is also very lovely!

Option for vanilla paste with seeds instead of vanilla extra for a bold vanilla flavour that is unmatched.

Shape it into chubby fingers or roll them into 1/2 inch disks. What do you prefer? I love snacking on these shortbread cookies with a nice hot cup of Earl Grey Hot Chocolate by the fireplace!

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Grind the Vanilla Earl Grey tea leaves in a coffee grinder with a spice grinder accessory kit until finely powdered. 
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 C).
  3. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream butter until it is creamy.
  5. Add finely powdered Vanilla Earl Grey tea leaves, pure vanilla extract, maple syrup or granulated sugar, sea salt and blend.
  6. Add flour slowly in 3 or 4 intervals and blend until thoroughly mixed. 
  7. Remove from stand mixer and work the dough until you can shape it into ball. The dough should press together without being sticky. 
  8. With a rolling pin, roll the dough our and then flatten approximately 1 inch in height. 
    Use a dough cutter and cut the dough into 1″ x 3″ rectangles.
  9. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to harden.
  10. Remove from refrigerator.
  11. Cut cookie dough into vertical 1 inch stripes.
  12. Carefully transfer cut cookie dough to prepared parchment paper lined large cookie sheet, spacing them 1/2 inch apart. 
  13. Use a fork to gently poke some holes in each cookie so it will not crack with baking. 
  14. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until light golden brown. Keep a close eye at the 14 minute mark. 
  15. Remove from oven and let rest on a cooling rack for 10 minutes. The cookies will start to harder quickly. 
  16. Serve and enjoy!


Notes

  • If the dough is sticky, add 1-2 tbsp flour and knead it.
  • If the dough is too dry, add a little more 1-2 tbsp maple syrup.
  • Divide the cookie dough in half (into two balls). It makes rolling it out easier.
  • Cut cookie dough into 1/2 inch discs if you prefer round shortbreads instead of 1″ x 3″ rectangles.
  • If the cookie dough has become too hard in the refrigerator, let rest for 5 minutes to soften. 
  • You do not need to grease the cookie sheet.
  • Cookies can be stored up to 1 week.
  • Double the recipe for a large batch.

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 CRSIPY TAIWANESE FRIED TURKEY 鹹酥火雞

This post is sponsored by the Turkey Farmers of Canada. All views and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep Nomss in the kitchen!

I first discovered these deeply savoury, highly addictive, bite-sized, snack back when I was in University. It was the best thing since sliced bread! My friends and I shared much laughter, so many tears with these late-night snacks.

Crispy Taiwanese Fried Turkey

How to Make the BEST Crispy Taiwanese Fried Turkey?

Want to know how to make this normally deep-fried salty, crispy chicken healthier? Using a 3.5L Chefman TurboFry Air Fryer to cut down on oil and grease goes a long way. Plus using dark turkey meat helps reduce fat and produces fewer calories than other, fattier meat choices.

For more information and recipe ideas, visit THINK TURKEYTM to learn more

Chefman Turbo Fry Air Fryer

Air Fry

Instead of deep-frying these little bite-sized pieces of turkey in potato starch until crispy, we swapped out the deep fry wok for an air fryer.

Cooking with an air fryer like the Chefman TurboFry Air Fryer is an easy, healthy alternative to deep-frying because it requires just one tablespoon of oil instead of submerging the food in oil! It deep fries food by circulating hot air while producing a similar taste and texture!

We like using the Chefman TurboFry Air Fryer because it has a large 3.5-litre capacity. It is quiet and easy to clean! The basket and tray are top-rack dishwasher safe. I love that the air fryer tray that separates the saturated oil from the food.

Taiwanese fried chicken is deep-fried twice: first at a low temperature to cook through the meat, and the second at high heat to push out the excess oil, and to create the crunch!

What Gives Taiwanese Fried Turkey It’s Distinctive Flavor?.

Five Spice Powder 五香粉: is a crucial ingredient in this infamous Chinese recipe. It consists of star anise, cinnamon, cloves, Sichuan peppercorns, and fennel. 

It is available at most Asian supermarkets and on Amazon.

Some people find five spice powder too powerful and like to substitute with galangal sand ginger powder 沙薑粉. I must have some five spice powder in my seasoning to keep the flavour profile authentic!

Potato Starch: Coating your turkey with potato starch makes all the difference when it comes to making the crispiest fried turkey! It is a night and day compared to using plain old flour! Potato starch has a bit more grit and, when deep-fried, creates little balls of crunchiness. It is lighter, yet crispier and crunchier! 

Marinade: Ensure you marinate your turkey at least 2 hours before cooking. If possible, marinate overnight in the refrigerator! Use a mixture of dark soy, light soy sauce, shaoxing wine, sugar, five spice powder, white parts of green onions, ginger, and minced garlic for that pop of umami and depth of flavour.

Thai Basil: Always garnish your Taiwanese deep-fried poultry with deep-fried Thai basil. It is aromatic and has a sweet bitter taste. Break a few leaves apart and sprinkle it on your fried turkey along with white pepper and sugar. Remember to air fry or deep fry Thai Basils at low heat.

White Pepper: The last finishing touch to your salty, crispy fried turkey is a sprinkle of white pepper and white sugar after it has been air fried. Toss your fried turkey with this mixture to create a sharper taste.

Why Are Deviled Eggs Called Deviled Eggs?

Classic deviled eggs are the perfect healthy snack for the holidays, potlucks and gathering parties. But “why are deviled eggs called deviled eggs?

According to Google, the term “deviled,” about food, was in use in the 18th century, with the first known print reference appearing in 1786. In the 19th century, it came to be used most often with spicy or zesty food, including eggs prepared with mustard, pepper or other ingredients stuffed in the yolk cavity.

Health Benefit of Eggs

So there is nothing genuinely devilish about deviled eggs!

In fact, eggs aren’t just delicious. They are incredibly nutritious and a great source of high-quality protein. Eggs are rich in vitamins A, B2, B6, B12, D, selenium, zinc, iron and copper!

Eggs are inexpensive, versatile, and an essential and versatile ingredient for cooking!

#WorldEggDay

Did you know that Oct 9th is deemed #WorldEggDay ? On Oct 9th, Egg Farmers of Canada celebrates the heroes, champions, and egg farmers from coast to coast in our food industry who work together to deliver the fresh, local, high-quality eggs that Canadians love to enjoy!

Chinese Deviled Eggs with Pork Floss and Nori

How to Make Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are easy to make and simply requires cooking a few hard-boiled eggs. But the best deviled eggs are perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs without the chalky green rim around the yolk.


Let’s talk about…

How to cook perfect hard-boiled eggs every time!

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil first.
  2. Ensure there is enough water to cover the eggs by about an inch.
  3. Place the eggs into the pot gently with a skimmer.
  4. Set a timer immediately and cook the eggs to your desired doneness.
  • 6 minutes 50 seconds: perfect soft-boiled egg with an unctuous texture
  • 8 minutes: soft yolk with firm white
  • 10 minutes: soft-centred hard-boiled eggs
  • 13 minutes: the ideal hard hard-boiled egg without the chalky green rim around the yolk! Anything beyond 14 minutes would be considered overcooked.

While the eggs are cooking, fill a large bowl with ice and cold water.
Transfer the eggs to the ice bath to cool asap. Placing the eggs in an ice-water bath will stop them from cooking and maintain your perfect egg texture!

Marinate the Eggs

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

The Chinese Tea Leaf Eggs Base has a beautiful marbled surface. It is rich in umami flavours after bathing in a savoury marinade consisting of light and dark soy sauce, star anise, cinnamon, Sichuan peppercorns, shaoxing wine and obviously, black tea leaves.

Once your eggs have marinated overnight in the refrigerator – longer for two to three days if you prefer a thicker egg yolk. The eggs will become more flavourful and saltier over time.

Chinese Deviled Eggs with Pork Floss and Nori

Assembling Deviled Eggs

Remove the yolk to a small bowl with a spoon and place the egg whites on a plate.

Mash the yolks with a folk and add in kewpie mayonnaise, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Mix everything together until smooth.

Use a spoon or a piping bag to add a portion of the deviled egg yolk mixture back into the hold of each egg white. You can use a ziplock bag instead of a piping bag. Simply cut a small hole at the corner and use that as a tip.

Dust smoked paprika for garnish, add on shredded pork floss, and sprinkle with nori komi furikake seasoning on top.

Serve these tiny umami flavour bombs to your guests!

  • Yield: 8 eggs 1x

Description

Chinese Deviled Eggs with Pork Floss and Nori Seafood Flakes are the perfect fusion twist of the classic deviled eggs recipe with a combination of a few simple ingredients bursting with umami flavours. The base is made with delicious hard-boiled Chinese Tea Leaf Eggs and upgraded with kewpie mayo, pork floss, nori komi furikake flakes and smoked paprika for an extra pop of heat. 


Scale

Ingredients

Chinese Tea Leaf Eggs

 

Deviled Eggs

 


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 Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs (Stovetop Method)

  1. Boil a large pot of water. 
  2. Carefully place the eggs into the boiling water and cook for exactly 13 minutes. 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.

 

Marinating the Eggs

  1. Once the eggs are cool, gently crack the eggs by tapping the shell with the back of a spoon. 
  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; however, this will not create the “marbled” effect. 
  3. Place the cracked eggs into a container, then pour the marinade in until the eggs are completely submerged.
  4. Marinate overnight for 24 hours 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. 

 

Assembling the Deviled Eggs

Assemble the Deviled Eggs the day you plan to enjoy them. Assembly time simply takes approximately 10-15 minutes. So I recommend you prepare these 30 minutes just before you plan on serving them to your happy guests!

 

  1. Remove the yolk to a small bowl with a spoon and place the egg whites on a separate plate.
  2. Mash the yolks with a folk and add in kewpie mayonnaise, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Mix everything together until smooth.
  3. Use a spoon or a piping bag to add a portion of the deviled egg yolk mixture back into the hole of each egg white. You can use a ziplock bag instead of a piping bag. Simply cut a small hole at the corner and use that as a tip.
  4. Dust smoked paprika for garnish, add on shredded pork floss, and sprinkle with nori komi furikake seasoning on top.
  5. Serve these tiny umami flavour bombs to your guests!

 

 



Notes

Chinese Tea Leaf Eggs can be made ahead of time. Simply cook the eggs to a perfect hard-boiled instead of a soft-boiled yolk.
