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.

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.

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!

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!

Cauliflower Okonomiyaki

Maybe Meatless Mondays is a trend, but we try to eat less meat when it makes sense! Although I’m not a vegan by any means, I do love a delicious healthy plant-based meal any chance I get. Sometimes, it is modernizing a traditional dish with a healthier spin; sometimes, it is making delicious bite-sized snacks that makes eating plants fun and exciting like this breaded no-fry baked Japanese okonomiyaki cauliflower bites!

Breaded No-Fry Baked Cauliflower Bites

There’s nothing worse that cauliflower bites that comes out soggy. We’ve had our run with bad store-bought cauliflower buffalo wings that’s just 100% disappointing! So we started making our own. We started frying some but it was too oily. So we tried to bake cauliflower nuggets instead and they were brilliant! Baking this breaded cauliflower recipe was a success! It is totally crispy and crunchy on the outside while still being tender on the inside! Thumbs up!

Cauliflower Okonomiyaki

How to make Crispy Cauliflower Bites

The secret to making the cauliflower bites crispy and crunchy is creating the breading: panko and spices. Instead of olive oil which gets a bit thin, use maple syrup with soy sauce! Coat the cauliflower florets and then roll it around in the breaded mixture. Make sure you cut the cauliflower into large florets – this makes it easier to bake!

Set the oven at 400F for 30 mins!

Next, we layer on the creamy and rich cashew mayonnaise. Drizzle it over the crispy breaded cauliflower bites and sprinkle some Marumiya Furikake seasoning and bonito flakes. Viola! vegan-ish Okonomiyaki Cauliflower Bites!

This recipe is almost (if you omit bonito flakes) vegan, vegetarian, plant-based, and gluten-free and dairy-free1

In case you are wondering, what are bonito flakes? They are Katsuobushi. It is dried, fermented, and smoked skipjack tuna!

Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice | Vegan, Vegetarian

Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice | Vegan, Vegetarian

For a healthier take on kimchi fried rice, try Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice. This healthy vegetarian recipe is good for anyone looking to have a flavorful vegetarian meal. This easy kimchi-bokkeum-bap recipe is packed full of flavour and healthy probiotics. It is simply delicious without the calories and can be made in just 15 minutes!

One of my favourite Korean dishes is Kimchi fried rice (Kimchi Bokkeumbap, 김치 볶음밥). I love the bold flavours of of gochujang, bacon, mushrooms and pretty much anything you want to add to it, including Spam. Anytime when I have extra left over rice or ripened kimchi, I would make Kimchi Fried Rice or Kimchi Jjigae.

Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice calls for Five Main Ingredients:

  • cauliflower
  • onions
  • garlic
  • kimchi
  • gochujang (hot pepper paste)

Anything else, is just gravy!

Although I am not a Vegan, I would often add an egg, pancetta bacon or Spam to my Kimchi Fried Rice. But it you are looking to reduce some calories, canned tuna (flaked light tuna works best) also makes for a great alternative!

Did you know that Kimchi (fermented cabbage) is packed with mutrients while being low in calories? It contains probiotics, reduces inflammation. aids weight loss, supports cardivascular heart health, etc.

Often I would double up the recipe and make a BIG batch for my meal prep of the week. It tastes super amazing even overnight and it will reheat really nice for lunches all week long!

PS: Here is the link for those resuable meal prep glass containers.

How To Make Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice

  1. In a heavy bottom pan or cast iron, heat oil over medium-high heat. Get the oil hot, but don’t let it smoke.
  2. Saute onions and garlic for 2 minutes
  3. Add in cauliflower “rice”, kimchi with all the juice, stir and cook.
  4. Cook down to reduce water
  5. Cover lid to steam cauliflower until cooked through.
  6. Remove lid and stir fry a little more. I like my “fried rice” with some burnt crispy sides.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, rough chopped 
  • 1 onion, rough chopped
  • 35 garlic cloves, minced or rough chop
  • 1/2 cup kimchi, slight more fermented kimchi 
  • 2 tablespoon Gochujang, more if you prefer spicier
  • dash of salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup of vegetable oil

 


Instructions

  1. In a heavy bottom pan or cast iron, heat oil over medium-high heat. Get the oil hot, but don’t let it smoke.
  2. Saute onions and garlic for 2 minutes
  3. Add in cauliflower “rice”, kimchi with all the juice, stir and cook.

Notes

Take a pair of scissors and cut up kimchi if you want it to be smaller
