TURKISH SPICE BEEF FREEKAH BOWL NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

What do you make on repeat in your house? This easy Turkish spiced beef freekah bowl is loaded with veggies and the Turkish spice mix just checks all the boxes and we just can’t get enough of it around here! Make a big batch of the Turkish spice mix and have it on hand whenever you need to whip up a quick vegetable dip, salad dressing or simply as a rub for your roasted meats and vegetables. For this healthy buddha bowl, you can opt to add meat or simply go meatless. Simply substitute or meat protein with either a plant-based protein to keep it vegan.

 

What is Freekah?

Freekah (pronounced free-kah) is a type wheat. Sometimes it is called farik. In short, it is wheat that is harvested while young and green. It is firm, slightly chewy with an earthy, nutty and smoky flavour profile. Freekah is a super-grain loaded with nutritional benefits. Freekah has more protein and twice as much fibre as quinoa – which means that freekah will keep you feeling fuller for longer. It is also packed with iron, calcium, zinc and acts as a probiotic for a healthy gut! Another health benefit of Freekah is that it has a lower glycemic index (great for people managing diabetes) and helps keeps your blood sugar steady.

  6. In the bowl with the pickled cabbage, mix in chopped parsley, cooked Freekah, lemon zest, peas 1 tbsp of lemon juice, and a drizzle of olive oil. Mix well and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Divide and serve. Garnish with remaining parsley, cilantro, garlic Toum sauce and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Phnom Penh Cambodian Fried Chicken Wings Recipe | 金邊炸雞翅

Phnom Penh Cambodian Fried Chicken Wings Recipe | 金邊炸雞翅

Phnom Penh Cambodian Fried Chicken Wings recipe NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD BLOG

I guess it’s fair to say that I have an obsession with chicken wings as like someone would over fried chicken. There’s this hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Vancouver that has been serving up some serious crack chicken wings for the past couple decades. Phnom Penh 金邊小館 is located in Chinatown and there is never a shortage of people lining up – a casual rainy weeknight will set you back at least 40 minutes. Yet we all happily comply! I think it’s partly because of their garlic butter sauce; and partly because of their crack dipping sauce that makes their wings so addictive!

To make these super delicious chicken wings at home a little healthier, I don’t use any powdered MSG. I substituted the umami flavour with a little fish sauce (I like using this one most) and sugar. I also replaced deep frying the chicken wings in hot oil with an air fryer (similar here).

 

Phnom Penh Cambodian Fried Chicken Wings recipe NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD BLOG

 

These chicken wings are dead easy to make. They are light and crispy! A little tangy and sweet! The skin has a nice sugary crunch! It’s almost magic! All you need is some five minutes of prep time and 25 minutes of cooking time in the Actifry (you barely even have to lift a finger! You can go and enjoy that glass of wine and Netflix).

 

Phnom Penh Cambodian Fried Chicken Wings recipe NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD BLOG

For the marinade, you will need a splash of fish sauce, sugar, corn starch, salt and pepper. For the dipping sauce you will need lime, white pepper powder and black pepper salt (I use Wu Hsing brand but you can find similar ones at any Asian supermarket). You can also use regular ground black pepper if you can’t find it.

I highly encourage you to make extra dipping sauce… you’ll want to double dip!

Phnom Penh Cambodian Fried Chicken Wings Recipe | Actifry Air Fryer

  • Author: Nancy
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 25
  • Total Time: 30
  • Yield: 2 lbs
  • Category: Chicken Wings
  • Method: Air Fryer
  • Cuisine: Cambodian

Description

Phnom Penh Cambodian style fried chicken wings recipe – light and crispy. Easy to make in 30 minutes. Actifry Air Fryer recipe.


Ingredients

Chicken Wing Marinade 

  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 4-6 garlic (minced)
  • dash of salt and pepper

Dipping Sauce

  • 3-4 tbsp white pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp black pepper salt
  • 1 lime juice

Optional

  • 1 tbsp butter (for air fryer)
  • 1 stalk fine chopped green onions and cilantro for garnish

Instructions

Chicken Wings

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix fish sauce, sugar, salt and pepper, and minced garlic.
  • Add chicken wings, toss and let marinade in fridge for 20 minutes. (Longer is ok too)
  • In a large bowl, place corn starch and coat the chicken wings. Shake off excess flour.
  • Add 1 tbsp of butter if you want that extra garlic butter flavour. For a healthier version, you do not need to add any oil. The chicken wings will give off enough oil for cooking.
  • Using a pair of tongs, add the chicken wings to the air fryer pan.
  • Turn on Actifry and set timer to 25 minutes.
  • Enjoy that glass of wine and come back with the timer beeps.
  • On a rack or paper towels, let the chicken wings rest for a few minutes. Be careful – the chicken wings are VERY HOT straight out of the air fryer! You do not want to burn your tongue!

Dipping Sauce

  • In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, white pepper powder and black pepper salt. You will want enough pepper so that the lime juice turn into a grey-ish colour.

Dip your wings in that peppery lime sauce and enjoy!


Notes

If you do not have an air fryer you can bake the chicken wings for 45 minutes at 420F. Flipping every 20 to 30 mins.

ACTIFRY BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH GARLIC CHILI RECIPE

ACTIFRY BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH GARLIC CHILI RECIPE

Raise your hand if you love roasted Brussel sprouts? I am so excited that Brussel sprouts season has officially arrived! I love it even more that I comes around the time of Thanksgiving! It goes great with a fat turkey wrapped in bacon(!) or simply on its own. I love them on shredded on pizzas, pastas and even on salads. They are super quick and simple to make and you can choose your favourite seasonings to customize it. I usually roast my Brussel sprouts with salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. It is such a classic recipe.

We recently got a T-fal Actifry air fryer. So if any of you are looking for ways to cook healthier with less oil, I high recommend this little machine! This little kitchen appliance is pretty versatile and come make a whole range of delicious recipes like chicken wings, curries, stir fry, etc. – guilt free.

 

TFAL ACTIFRY AIR FRYER NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD RECIPE BLOG

TFAL ACTIFRY AIR FRYER NOMSS.COM VANCOUVER FOOD RECIPE BLOG

T-fal’s Actifry is pretty easy to use and you don’t need to read the instruction manual. Set your timer and press the “On” button.

 

The classic Brussel sprouts recipe with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper is dead easy to make. It is a healthy, gluten free dish that everyone will fight over. Prepping these little cabbages takes no time – 5 minutes tops. Wash. Slice in half length-wise, season and toss in olive oil. To make garlic chili Brussel sprouts, all you need to do is take 4-6 cloves of garlic (minced. I also like to have some that are sliced for extra bite) and a tablespoon of chili oil in place of olive oil. It is the BEST spicy Brussel sprouts ever!

PAN FRIED SOYA NOODLES RECIPE | 豉油皇炒麵

PAN FRIED SOYA NOODLES RECIPE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

I can never get enough of pan fried soya noodles! It is a classic Cantonese comfort dish. Pan Fried Soya Noodles 豉油皇炒麵 pairs so well with congee for breakfast or over dim sum! Those thin, crispy pan fried noodles are so irresistible and the soya sauce just hits home! This simple dish requires no modifications. I never get tired of it! It is perfect being so simple to make – yet you can definitely add a protein here and a garnish there if you really felt like it! Plus it literally takes no effort to make! All you need is a ripping hot pan! And maybe some XO chili oil!

 

PAN FRIED SOYA NOODLES RECIPE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

What makes a great pan fried soya noodle dish is a really HOT pan! One that makes the oil ripping hot to give the noodles a nice sear and fry! I used this fry pan from Ballarini. This pan uses a signature Granitium nonstick coating that has exceptional scratch resistance, quick release and effortless cleanup. It is also oven proof up to 160°C!

 

To make these noodles you will need Hong Kong style egg noodles, light soy sauce (thinner and lighter in color), dark soy sauce (less salty, thicker and adds colour), sesame oil, salt, sugar, shaoxing wine, white pepper, bean sprouts, scallions, and Chinese mushroom (optional – be sure to resuscitate it in water for a few hours prior to cooking).
