ANTI-INFLAMMATORY VEGAN SOUP

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY VEGAN SOUP

Feeling tired and run down? Dealing with a cold or the flu? Try this easy to make delicious Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Soup to help you avoid getting sick and make you feel better faster! While chicken soup and vitamin C are staple remedies, adding an anti-inflammatory diet will help prevent serious health problems. This soup is packed full of Vitamins A, B6, C, E, K, nutrients, powerful antioxidant properties that help protect cells against damage by free radicals, and minerals.

Anti-inflammatory foods have been well studied to reduce inflammation. They include lots of fruits and vegetables, plant-based proteins, fatty fish, fresh herbs and spices.

Inflammation is the body’s natural process to heal and defend itself from infection, illness or injury. However, inflammation is harmful when it becomes chronic due to stress, poor eating habits, lack of sleep or being over-weight. If you suffer from gut disorders, autoimmune disease, diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, incorporating these simple food into your diet is a great idea!

Classic tell tale signs of inflammation can include redness, heat, pain or swelling.

Adopting an Anti-inflammatory Diet:

  • Avoid/reducing inflammatory foods like processed foods (burgers, soda pop, potato chips), refined carbs, high sugar, industrial seed oils, red meat, high fructose corn syrup and alcohol
  • Instead replace with anti-inflammatory foods that are unprocessed, unadulterated single ingredient foods like vegetables, fruits, plant-based proteins, fatty fish, etc.
  • In addition to eating a whole food diet, it is important to exercise and sleep can reduce inflammation.

Health Benefits of Eating:

Bok Choy: excellent source of Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin A, and beta-carotene. It is a very good source of folate, calcium, and contains the mineral selenium.

Garlic: combat sickness like common Cold by boosting immunity, reduce blood pressure, improves cholesterol levels, and fights fungus.

Ginger: improves digestion, relieves nausea, combats a cold or the flu, supports cardiovascular health, kills germs, etc.

Carrots: excellent source of beta carotene, fibre, vitamin K1, vitamin A, keratin, potassium, and antioxidants. Carrots also help to promote weight loss and improves eye health.

Onions: contain antioxidants and compounds that fight inflammation, decrease triglycerides and reduce cholesterol levels. They are excellent sources of vitamin C, sulphuric compounds, flavonoids and phytochemicals.

Cilantro: this antioxidant-rich herb contains vitamins C, provitamin A, and K. It helps to lower your blood sugar, fight infections and promote heart, brain, skin and digestive health!

3 Tips to Prevent Getting Sick

  1. Avoid/reduce eating inflammatory foods. Avoid eating sugary treats and desserts! – sugar weakens your immune system.
  2. Getting quality restorative sleep for at least 8 hours – lack of sleep impairs the immune system. Our bodies naturally repair it’s self while sleeping by releasing certain disease-fighting chemicals.
  3. Avoid/reducing drinking alcohol (yes, this includes wine!) Alcohol dehydrates the body, the microbes in your gut and impairs your immune system up to 24 hours.

Getting sick is inevitable but we can heal it by healthy, wholesome, nutritious food that helps reduce inflammation and boost our immune system.

With the current news of COVID-19 epidemic (pandemic really…) it is a friendly reminder to treat our bodies well and to remember to wash your f*cking hands (with soup for at least 20 seconds)! Sing the Happy Birthday song 2x!

Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Fish 鹹魚蒸肉餅

Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Fish 鹹魚蒸肉餅

鹹魚蒸肉餅 Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Fish is one of my childhood favourite comfort homecooked dishes. Sometimes we use salted fish 鹹魚. Sometimes we use preserved vegetables Mei Cai 梅菜. Either way, you make it you will have a delicious Chinese homey dish that is great served with plain white jasmine rice.

In the olden days, dried salted fish is considered food for the poor. One salted fish can be eaten over several meals – sometimes with just shredded ginger and rice. Now, a quality dried salted fish is not cheap.

Types of Salted Fish

There are

  • Fermented Salted Fish 霉香鹹魚
  • Barramundi 鰽白
  • Blue Salmon 馬友鹹魚

How is Salted Fish Made?

Salted fish is generally made by drying or salting either dry salt or with brine. Cantonese salted fish can be divided into two main types mui heung 霉香 or shí-ròu 實肉 (firm-fleshed). Firm fleshed salted fish does not need to be fermented and is prepared by seasoning followed by direct sun or wind drying.

Common Types of Salted Fish

  • Fermented Salted Fish 霉香鹹魚
  • Barramundi 鰽白
  • Blue Salmon 馬友

I like using Blue Salmon 馬友鹹魚. Blue Salmon is great because it only has one big bone. It is aromatic and intensely fragrant. It is perfect to make salted fish with diced chicken rice or steamed minced pork cakes with.

How To Make Steamed Minced Pork with Salted Fish

You may wonder why I am chopping the pork shoulder meat myself instead of using store-bought minced pork. Store-bought minced pork does not have the same mouth-feel texture that mincing the pork yourself has. There is a small and large difference that gives the diced meat a good soft chewy texture. Store-bought minced pork becomes too soft and mushy.

Plus it is pretty therapeutic chopping the meat. Banging it against the chopping board. Just think of it as your worst enemy!

I usually select a pork shoulder that is half lean, half fatty so it won’t become too dry once it is cooked. If it too fatty it gets too greasy. So it is really a matter of balance and preference!

Once the meat is minced, add in grounded white pepper, a dash of salt. If you are adding salted fish into your minced pork meat instead of just on top, reduce the amount of salt used – otherwise, it will be too salty.

Add light soy sauce, sugar and mix well. On the side mix some corn starch mixed with a little water. Slowly add into the minced pork, a little at a time. The reason is that the corn starch water will make the minced pork cake smoother. Let it rest between additions to allow time to absorb.

Some like to add finely diced ginger also into the minced pork if they were folding in the salted fish. I prefer not to add the minced ginger and only add the salted fish on top when I am steaming my minced pork pie.

If you choose to add in salted fish, gently fold in the salted fish meat so you get a distinctive mouth-feel and pork-fish separation.

Mix in a little oil.

on a 10 inch or 12 inch plate, layer the minced pork thinly on the plate. Place the salted fish and julienned ginger on top.

Put a steaming rack into your wok and boil approximately 2 inches of water. Once the water is boiling, put in your plated minced pork cake and steam for 12 to 15 minutes (depending on how thick or thin your pork pie is.) You may want to check in on it at the 12-minute mark.

Initially, when you open the wok cover, it may look like there is a lot of water/sauce on the plate. But give it a few minutes and it will soak right up into the pork. You will want some sauce to go with your rice.

Slowly using a plate clamp lift up the plate from the work. Add some finely chopped green onions as garnish.

We eat bowls and bowls of rice whenever we have Minced Pork Salted Fish Cake for dinner.

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.
