🇵🇭KABUTE AT PATOLA SA OYSTER SAUCE | OYSTER MUSHROOM AND SPONGE GOURD IN OYSTER SAUCE 👩🏼‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳Mushroom recipes are a dime a dozen because the variety of edible mushrooms in Austria is enormous. There are several hundred species of edible mushrooms in their forests. Nevertheless, care should be taken when collecting and cooking the tasty forest fruits, because some types of mushrooms or mushrooms are poisonous. But this oyster mushroom I added to my sponge gourd is from an Indian shop near us. I decide to cook it with sponge gourd seasoned with oyster sauce. Simple recipe but satisfying. I was raised with these dishes more on vegetables and fish. So if I’m alone I’m gonna cook all those vegetables which I love to eat. For me, it is lighter but has more nutrients and is fresh.

YOU NEED…….

1 Sponge Gourd

200g Oyster Mushrooms

1 Onion

4 cloves Garlic

80g Pork Belly

2tbsps. Oyster Sauce

🌏CHORIZO-BELL PEPPERS FRIED RICE👩🏼‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳It is basically Chinese-style fried rice except I did not add eggs. Instead, just bell peppers and thinly sliced chorizo is mine! Seasoned with soy sauce and mushroom sauce. But to adjust the taste if needed I used salt. Cooking this for breakfast at six o’clock in the morning. We Filipinos are used to eating fried rice for breakfast. Since I am alone I use to wake up early and cook or prep my breakfast. Then for lunch, I’m just having my smoothie. When dinner time comes also another smoothie. Mostly during summertime. Hubby is still in the Philippines.

🇨🇳SWEET & VINEGAR SPARERIBS alla CHINESE PROVINCIAL CUISINE 👩🏼‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳The vinegar helps to tenderize the spareribs. It may also improve the flavor but not soaking the ribs straight in vinegar too long. It can give the ribs an indulgent texture that keeps me coming back for more to eat. For color contrast, I added carrot and green chili. Turn out not a dry bit of sauce and the meat is tender and juicy. Hubby loves it. Fried trout is an additional viand for today because hubby is leaving for a vacation to the Philippines. So I’m not gonna cook for lunch whatever left will be for tonight’s dinner then.

🇮🇳FENUGREEK LEAVES COOKED IN MONGO(MUNG BEAN) | KASURI METHI OF INDIA

👩‍🍳Cooking Fenugreek leaves which I added to mung bean or mongo. But there is some side effect of fenugreek leaves but also good for health. It has been said that large doses may cause a harmful drop in blood sugar. Fenugreek can cause allergic reactions in some people. Which I found good for diabetics like me. Because one cup of methi leaves gives only 13 calories making it a good choice for those controlling their calorie intake. Rich in Vitamin K which is good for bone metabolism. Dried fenugreek leaves are known as Kasuri methi in India. It is also rich in dietary fiber. Today I cook mung bean with this and with smoked mackerel. For a change add the usual leafy green vegetable that we Filipinos know. Like Alugbati (vine spinach), ampalaya (Bitter melon leaves), even Camote Tops (talbos ng kamote), and spinach.

🌏CHRYSANTHEMUM GREENS-TONG HO SOUP OF THE DAY👩🏼‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳Unlike many other leafy greens, garland chrysanthemum hasn’t received much research attention. It seems to be a relatively unremarkable, albeit healthy food. Low in calories, relatively high in protein, and fairly nutrient-dense, this is a flavourful and very healthy side dish. I love it just to add to my broth, here just added to pork bones broth and I made tomato for dipping or add it in the soup. I ate it with my cauliflower rice which is good for diabetics. Next time I would love to try it just like a salad with sesame miso dressing. I’ll share to you the recipe. Great way to use the chrysanthemum greens!

YOU NEED…….

a bunch of garland chrysanthemum

Pork Bones

3 pieces of small Carrot

Salt and Pepper to taste

🇵🇭SINIGANG NA LECHON-ULO NG BABOY WITH GABI | LECHON PORK HEAD

👩‍🍳Using the thick flavour of Lechon meat from leftover pork head Lechon. Added taro, okra, eggplant and water spinach in tamarind flavour broth from Knorr. Nothing is special with this recipe it’s similar to cooking any sinigang. I don’t have tomato at home so I substituted tomato paste instead. The broth was so good and the colour looks very appetizing too. So this is my version of cooking “sinigang na lechong ulo ng baboy”. What happens to the pig head? Here in Vienna. Austria! For the production of meat products, a pig’s head is usually first gently boiled, salted and deboned. The remaining part of the rind, muscle meat, fat and connective tissue is technically called mask and is mainly processed into aspic and sausage. The tongue is disposed of separately. But we Filipinos love to roast it until crispy just like here. The so called “Lechon ng Ulo ng Baboy” in Tagalog. Pig head Lechon or Pork Head Lechon.

Happy Prepping and Guten Appetit.🤗
