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.

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!

Ma Lan Tou Recipe | Kalimeris Indica Tofu Salad 馬蘭頭

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle
馬蘭頭 Ma Lan Tou is a simple and refreshing cold appetizer that is very easy to make. It is usually served with a selection of small plates beginning any Shanghainese feast. For one, I like that it takes only 5 to 6 ingredients. It goes wonderfully with rice, saucy dishes and has a fragrant but mild flavor.

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle
Ma Lan Tou (MLT) is also known as Kalimeris Indica (Indian Aster). It is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant (similar to a daisy or chrysanthemum) and grows mainly in China, Korea, and Japan. It is said that the plant is used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat acute inflammations, high blood pressure and is also effective in stopping the bleeding.

 

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Whether it holds up to its medicinal uses I enjoy the extra serving of vegetables and dried bean curd.
In Vancouver (Canada), MLT usually is packaged frozen. Rarely, do you ever see fresh leaves sold at supermarkets. Thaw and boil to remove the chillness. Run under cold water to stop the cooking. Using a colander, drain all water from the veggie and press out excess water.

 

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

This Ma Lan Tou recipe requires dried tofu豆腐干/豆干. If you don’t have these stocked at home, you can always use bean curd sheets (sometimes called bean curd threads). Since they come dried, you will need to soak them for at least 10 to 15 mins in hot water.

 

If you use Dried Tofu, simply dice finely. If you bean curd sheets after soaked in water, ensure you press out the water. Pat dry remaining moisture. Then dice finely. The texture will be firm and a little rubbery.

Description

Ma Lan Tou is a simple and refreshing cold appetizer that is very easy to make. It is usually served with a selection of small plates beginning any Shanghainese feast. For one, I like that it takes only 5 to 6 ingredients. It goes wonderfully with rice, saucy dishes and has a fragrant but mild flavor.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Ma Lan Tou
  • 3 Squares Dried Tofu (or 4 to 5 sticks dried bean curd)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 0.5 tsp sugar
  • 0.5 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch (Optional: to wash the Ma Lan Tou)

Instructions

  1. Wash Ma Lan Tou with cornstarch. This is optional. But I find adding cornstarch helps to draw out dirt and any muddy flavors from the plant.
  2. If you are using frozen MLT, thaw, and blanch in boiling water for a few minutes to remove the chillness. Rinse with cold water.
  3. Drain water using a colander. Press out excess water with hands. Pat dry with paper towel. Finely dice MLT.
  4. Finely chop dried tofu/ bean curd.
  5. Add the finely diced MLT and dried tofu in a large mixing bowl.
  6. Add salt, sugar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Toss and mix well.
  7. Tightly pack into bowl or cup and invert onto a dish to serve. I usually use a rice bowl.
  8. This dish can be made ahead of time and kept chilled in the refrigerator.
  9. Serve 4 (or serves barely 2 if you have me at your table)! I can this all to myself!

Notes

  • Remember to drain well. The drier you can get the MTL the better. Wring tea towel also helps

Heirloom Vegetarian Restaurant Vancouver Brunch

 

Heirloom Vancouver Brunch time is a fairly special treat. The clean crisp white space is intriguing and cozy at the same time. I would suggest you request a seat by the fireplace or by the window to absorb the natural light. Heirloom Vegetarian offers contemporary dining with fresh cocktails, organic wine list, and local craft beers. Who says you can’t drink on Meatless Mondays? But before you jump to conclusions about eating cardboard and erasers; Heirloom is focused on fair traded ingredients and super foods. Better yet, they are open for Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch from 9am to 4pm.

 

Gentlemen, do not fret! You will not go home hungry. Or worse, hangry. The food is actually quite filling and won’t leave you in a comatose!

The Southern Vegetarian Cookbook – Brussels Sprout Salad with Smoked Feta and Candied Pecans

The Southern Vegetarian Cookbook – Brussels Sprout Salad with Smoked Feta and Candied Pecans

Cookbook - Southern Vegetarian

 We were recently sent a few Southern cookbooks from the good folks at OMG Publicity. This was one of the books, the other was In a Snap!: Tasty Southern Recipes You Can Make in 5, 10, 15, or 30 Minutes by Tammy Algood where we featured the Red Pepper Cheese Dip recipe. In contrast, The Southern Vegetarian Cookbook seems a tad more sophisticated and not a mad rush around the kitchen, but rather a relaxing at home fueling up the kitchen with gourmet aroma. The book again has beautiful pictures but I do wish it was on coil spine so I wouldn’t crease my book. This is something hard to avoid.

I wanted to taste out some easy recipes suitable for the summer heat. For the dog days of summer it really didn’t make sense to suffer in the kitchen with a Le Creuset Cherry Pot stewing for hours. I am however looking forward to a Brussel Sprout Salad or the Oyster Mushroom Rockefellers.

Cookbook - Southern Vegetarian
