Hi this is KK, Sushi Artist / Healthy Muffin Maker / Mum 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog.
As I mentioned before, we are supposed to eat 350g of vegetables a day. When you weigh this, it’s quite a lot, and eating this as a salad can be quite difficult, unless you really love fresh veggies. Also, if you are on a diet, salad is not the best option for 2 reasons. One, the dressing can be high in calories, so you have to eat it with salt & pepper & lemon juice, which can be boring after some time. The second reason is fresh vegetables tend to “cool” your body, and if you want to lose weight, you should be “warm”ing your body, so rather than eat raw vegetables, it is recommended to eat cooked (steamed or grilled without oil) vegetables.
So, my saga continues to eat yummy cooked vegetables, and here is a new flavor that you can try.
You can use any vegetables with this sauce, I made the sauce in double batch, and used it the day after with red capsicum, mushroom, onion and tofu! It was also yum,yum, my daughter ate all the tofu,,, Hope you can find your best combination!
Ingredients for 2
-1 Green Capsicum
-1 Bak choy
-1 bunch Garlic chive
-2 Free range Eggs
-Sesame oil for cooking
-2 Tablespoon Soy sauce
-3 Tablespoon Mirin
-1 Tablespoon Oyster sauce
– Ginger(about 1/2 your thumb size)
-1/2 Tablespoon vinegar
-1 Tablespoon potato starch mixed with 1 Tablespoon water
Step 1: Chop all your vegetable into strips, garlic chives can be cut into 5cm lengths; beat eggs in a bowl
Step 2: Heat sesame oil in a frying pan, cook eggs until they are half cooked, take them out on a plate and cook vegetables in the same pan; in a different saucepan cook the ingredients of sauce EXCEPT ginger, vinegar and potato starch (this is to be added at the end)
Step 3: When the sauce comes to boil and the veggies are cooked, add ginger, vinegar and potato starch to the sauce, make it thick; add eggs to veggies, finally mix the sauce with veggies and serve
All this process is done in less than 10min, so be quick :-)! You can make the sauce separately beforehand and mix it with any veggies that you like. There are so many combinations to choose from, just take what’s left in your fridge!
