Friday, April 4th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Sometimes, a dish can be "discovered" in unexpected ways: when the fridge is almost cleared of perishables such as milk and leafy greens before going on a short vacation; then just after you have returned and have not even get the time to stock up on some fresh produce/groceries to replenish the fri (Read more...)

Asparagus with Maitake Mushrooms 芦笋炒舞茸

Monday, March 31st, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Asparagus, an excellent source of folate, Vitamin K, Vitamin A, has also been classified under the "king" category. Defin (Read more...)

Monday, March 24th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

I have used Soba (buckwheat) noodles for quite some time, more often in soups or sometimes simply dressed with ground sesame plus some kind of nut butter e.g. peanut butter or even almond butter.

With the nutty flavors inherent in buckwheat, soba noodles can also be prepared as a main dish without mu (Read more...)

Sesame Broccoli 芝麻拌西兰花

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

This Sesame Broccoli is inspired by one of the banchan dishes served up in one of the Korean restaurants - Jang Su Jang in Santa Clara, California.

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Hairy/fuzzy melon (Mao Gua 毛瓜 ) stir-fries usually come off as a homey dish - with either dried shrimps or fresh shrimps. Often this melon can also be steamed (usually with meat stuffing) or cooked in soups.

Oven-Roasted Mushroom Tomato Sauce

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

This is a glutamate-rich dish with tomatoes and mushrooms or to be exact, three different kinds of mushrooms. Meat and shellfish aside, there are natural food sources in which you derive gluamates (umami flavors) from, without the use of MSG. Tomatoes and mushrooms are two of these natural food sour (Read more...)

The mixed-grain rice (五谷米)used here consists of brown rice, oat, barley, buckwheat, red lentils and more. What else is mixed into the "rice" ?

Buckwheat Noodles in Squash Sauce 小南瓜酱汁荞麦面

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

This post is a reprint of a post by tigerfish that originally appeared at Teczcape-An Escape to Food.

Kabocha squash thickens up sauces really well, especially after the squash has been cooked through and thorough. All you need is to scoop the "flesh" (cooked squash) into the sauce, simmer with the sauce and literally witness the squash melting into the sauce like a puree. This makes a savory sauce (Read more...)
