๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒREPOLYONG MATULIS (POINTED CABBAGE) SPITZKRAUT IN GERMAN

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณHow healthy is pointed cabbage? In german “Spitzkraut” or in Tagalog “matulis na repolyo”. Healthy and low in calories. Since it contains a lot of fibre, it stimulates digestion. In addition, pointed cabbage contains a lot of so-called ascorbigen, which is converted into vitamin C during cooking. With only 20 kilocalories per 100 grams, it is also – like all types of cabbage – very low in calories. The reason why we love this type of cabbage here. Especially, my hubby, use add it in “Bulalo”, “Nilagang Karne” (Boiled Meat) or even in “sinigang na buto-buto” (Bones in sour soup). Me I love to make a salad out of it during summertime. Pointed cabbage is related to white cabbage but tastes much better. It owes its name to its shape the pointed cabbage grows pointed at the top. Today I added to glass noodle or Sotanghon mix with Udon noodle Japanese style.

TEMPEH and BASMATI RICE

Tempeh the Indonesian classic is very well known, especially for vegan and it is definitely worth getting to know the meat substitute, which is particularly rich in protein! Today, the product is no longer just made frozen fermented soybeans, but also from regionally growing organic lupins. A real discovery meal with green beans in a spicy coconut sauce, light basmati rice and a crispy salad served to my family today for them to try too. I got good feedback and added to our family preferences. You can try it also with this recipe.

BULGOGI EGGPLANT

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณBulgogi is a Korean recipe made from beef, sesame seeds and rice that is cooked in a wok. But I go well with eggplant too. Try it. The eggplant is a healthy vegetable and impresses with its purple colour. Eggplant inspires with their purple colour. Since they hardly have their own taste, they look good in almost every dish. In order for the taste buds to be perfect, a few things should be considered when processing. Eggplants mostly in Germany are also known as egg fruit, plum, eggplant or Spanish eggs this is very suitable for roasting, steaming, filling and baking in foil or as a puree. do you know that 100 grams of eggplant have only 4 g of carbohydrates, almost no fat and only 25 calories. Eggplant actually comes from India but have been at home in European latitudes since the 17th century. Italy and Spain, in particular, are among the main growing countries. How to know if eggplant is fresh: Make sure you have smooth, shiny skin and a crisp green stem when buying.

PORK BELLY and STRING BEAN

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸณFor me, a good adobo sauce is naturally thick. The cooked dish is almost dry. Matter of preference, I love my adobong string bean a little bit sour and almost dry. The pork belly should absorb the flavours of vinegar, Mama Sita’s BBQ marinade and soy sauce. And a little bit oily. Here adobong string bean or sitaw with pork belly. Serve with hot brown rice that makes my lunch so perfectly prepared!
