250g Spaghetti

150g Feta Cheese

🇵🇭SHRIMP-TOFU SOUP | HOME COOKED CREATED RECIPE 👩🏼‍🍳iCook

👩🏼‍🍳Soup is a food that is made by combining ingredients, such as meat and vegetables in stock or hot boiling water until the flavor is extracted, forming a broth. Here is another recipe creation directly from my kitchen. With two options one is with tofu and plain shrimp with wide Chinese noodles. Of course, I prefer tofu to shrimp. Served with meat patties and for me mashed potato for hubby fried rice. That makes our sumptuous dinner for two. Happy prepping and Guten Appetit!

ABOUT

🌏🇵🇭TEMPURA STUFF AND VEGGIES WITH SHRIMP👩🏻‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳Tempura batter is very easy and versatile for dipping and deep-frying fruits, meats, and vegetables. Just like here, using tempura for chicken spam and surimi. Surimi is a solid mass of minced fish. About 900 years ago it was discovered in Japan that minced fish, cooked and jellied with sugar, has a longer shelf life. More info about surimi, the basic substance for seafood imitations is surimi, a protein mass made from fish. This is salted and solidified by heat with the addition of egg white or starch. Anyway, I also cooked vegetables with shrimp. I was complaining all the way while cooking because the vegetables produce liquid but it turned out good.

YOU NEED…….

1 pack Surimi, Crab Sticks

1 Can Chicken Spam

1 pack of Roasted Seaweeds

Tempura Batter

4 cakes of Tofu

Vegetable Oil for frying

FOR SHRIMP VEGGIES:

100g Beans Sprout, Togue

1 Sweet Potato, small purple

Napa Cabbage

1/4 head Cabbage

300g Shrimps

4 cloves Garlic

2tbsps. Soy Sauce

🇵🇭ADOBONG SITAW with TOFU/ EATING AS MEDICINE/ STRING BEANS and TOFU COOKED in SOY SAUCE

The cooked dish is almost dry. Matter of preference, I love my adobong sitaw a little bit sour and almost dry. The tofu should absorb the flavors of vinegar and soy sauce. Served with basmati or brown rice that makes dinner so perfectly prepared for me. String beans cooked in soy sauce with calamansi added fried tofu. TOYOMANSI- a product from the Philippines the one I used here. Under the motto “Eating as Medicine”.

TOFU-VEGGIES with SWEET and SOUR SAUCE

👩‍🍳SWEET & SOUR—This term is used to describe dishes that have a flavor balanced between sweet and pungent, usually accomplished by combining sugar and vinegar. The flavor is often incorporated into a sauce or dressing that can be served with meat, fish or vegetables. The Chinese are famous for their sweet-and-sour specialties and the Germans are noted for their delicious sweet-and-sour cabbage dishes. So I can say this is a combination of German-Chinese effect! As everybody knows, I’m living in German speaking country. It does in fact originate from China, and is now also used in some American and European cuisines.

Kid friendly BURGER Recipe: This quick, easy, burger recipe is a sure way to get your kids or anyone else to eat tofu. Tofu burgers hold together well, and are great for grilling too.

TOFU and GROUND MEAT BURGERS – iCookiTravel

A Tip from me,— use leftover burger mix to make sloppy joes, or scambled tofu. Cold burger patties make great sandwiches. Improvise freely with the seasonings and the grains. But if you want onions, use them on the outside, not the inside – they make the mixture too wet.

YOU NEED…….

* 6pcs. extra firm Tofu
* 75g ground meat Pork or Beef (Optional, I added because of my kids preference)
* 1/4 c whole wheat flour or corn flour
* 1 tsp thyme, dried
* 1 tsp coriander or cilantro, dried or powder
* 1/2 tsp garlic powder
* 1/4 tsp ginger powder
* 2 tbsps Soy sauce
* 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp pepper
* 1 egg
* some Canola or any vegetable oil for frying

FOR GARLIC-YOGHURT SAUCE OR DRESSING:
* 2 cups of Yoghurt
* 4 cloves Garlic, minced
* 1 tsp. Garlic powder
* some white pepper powder
* some salt

ABOUT, BAKING AND DESSERT, PORK MEAT, PURE VEGGIES

SATURDAY’s LUNCH AT HOME

I’ve not been very good about keeping up with my writing these past couple of weeks. Some of these entry was only transfered from my old blog. But today hubby had got a day off from work. And luckily, my kitchen is always here for both of us a comfort in times of stress and a stage for when there’s celebration.

Today we decided to cook together for our lunch and also bake something for merienda for our General Assembly in the afternoon (MS-HFC) the community we belong. As usual if I’m in the kitchen my “BUNSO” (Riyadh, my dog) join me always and of course not to forget my Laptop! (yes, you read it right MY LAPTOP…hehehe…)

Pork liver and radish with balsamic vinegar. Most people, especially those who grew up in the cities, may be reluctant to eat meat dishes with liver. But not me, I love this palatable taste!
According to studies, liver is excellent sources of vitamins like; A, D, C, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin and other nutrients like pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, choline, biotin, and folic acid. The internal organs are even richer sources than the actual animal meat. But we don’t have it off in our weekly menu plan…wink!

Today’s lunch pinakbet one of my favorites, in which I’m obsessed particularly when it comes to vegetables cooking!

Fried tofu is great on it’s own or dipped in just about any kind of sauce. You can also use fried tofu in a vegetable stir-fry, fried rice or noodle dish, or just about anything. I like to add fried tofu to vegetarian soups and salads for extra protein and a bit of crunchy texture. My daughter loves it just dipped in toyomansi with crushed garlic!

At the end I did my baking for the community in the afternoon while seating down with my laptop
Fret not, I am staying true to my writing and the pleasures of food. Sometimes I think cooking is the only thing that keeps me somewhat sane in this crazy world:))
