Fusilli vegetarians al wok

Onions are the best and they keep all the boothish and annoying stuff away from your sight and your body ~ So beware. Onions are  a must and you ll never miss them wherever you live at the shop or at the market.  For example a simple onion chutney can be served with anykind of flabread like these paranthas or you can save it in the fridge for few days and make late use for other pasta  or meat dishes.

But you see, onions are too  important from our health, our any-life-syle deserves onion every week or even every day. You dont like them raw? Doesnt matter, make a puree or  a chutney like in this case and use is as background for other infusion of flavors. Onions should not be forgot. They are anti bacterial and antiseptic, they keep you fresh and clean from inside, it s a precious ingredient.  

Fusilli vegetarians al wok are soo tasty and fresh, a puree of baked eggplant plus half raw onion will give them a dark sauced color. Then boiled and dry  veggies and cubed feta cheese willcomplete the sublime dish. It’s got an impressive taste ~ 

method & ingredients

  1. 1 baked eggplant
  2. half cut medium onion
  3. chili,cilantro, olive oil
  4. process and puree all these above. Then sautee the puree with little water in a wok, stir nd and put to rest. Boil fusilli apart in the meantime.
  5. a whole zucchino boiled togheter with the fusilli, in the same water. When it s soft drain and cut it completely in half moons. Add here few dried sunrise tomatoes and feta cheese in chunks. When pasta is drained and ready stir it in teh wok with all the ingredients you have.

Serve it still hot smoking from the wok directly onto the table…Enjoy it dear foodie~reader…it goes to the feast Weekend wokking  n.22 hosted by Kits Chow  in wonderful Kitsilano Vancouver which i visited in Xmas and loved it too much. Lots of greetings Kit & Gong Hey Fat Choy!

Le cipolle essendo antibatteriche & antisettiche mantengono alla larga tutte le sostanze bootish dal nostro organismo fisico e spirituale, quindi non dovrebbero mai mancare. Se non piacciono crude allora possono diventare una base di sfondo per altri piatti di pasta o carne. Come ques fusilli al wok che prendono il  colore marrone dal puree di una melanzana arrostita e mezza cipolla cruda. 

ingredienti e metodo:

  1. bucare 1 melanzana e infornarla fino a che diveta scura e tenera
  2. mezza cipolla a pezzetti
  3. cilantro, chili, olio
  4. Fare un puree degli ingredienti in alto e poi ripassarlo al wok con un filo d’acqua, spegnere la fiamma. Intanto bollire i fusilli in acqua con una zucchina intera che quando si ammorbidisce si fa a parte a mezze rondelle. Preparare alcuni pomodori secchi sottolio e della feta a cubetti
  5. Scolare i fusilli e mescolarli nel wok con tutti gli ingredienti a disposizione. Servire la pasta fumante…

Monthly mingle ~ Brunch

DSCF0965

Simple stickey rice croquettes with fresh chives are easy to prepare and perfect complement with any other food in a  brunch banquet. This is why this entry for …

MMBRUNCH[4]

the event created by just discovered Meeta from Germany (via Erbe in cucina! thank you Graziana!)

how to make them? nothing simpler: have a bowl of sticky rice, mix it with 2 spoons of mize pulp and fresh chive; prepare and golden the patties on both sides in very little olive oil on antiadherent surface, sprinkle with salt (in this case a very special natural salt was used: red one from Bolivia).

Have fun & Happy brunching all !

p.s. i adore brunching and find lots of similarities with dimsum too~

 

Udon, Chinese mushrooms & chicken cantonese

DSCF0747

A quick delicious dinner with the properties of the rice, white meat, a vegetable backed by a couple of Indian spices. The chicken was preroasted  with cantonese method (see recipe at the bottom of this other post), then sliced and stir fried together with sliced Chinese meaty mushrooms, crashed anacards, a dash of cardamom and blackpepper, red onion. Dress the drained soft udon with this blend of flavors, squeeze little lime before serving. Chinese mushrooms have a strong special taste and they make this simple dish real flavorful, rich and unique. Not only: the chicken, previously cooked, even a left over from 2 days, like in my case, brings character thru grilled aromas of soy sauce and brown sugar in the back.

Questo piatto comfort che incrocia udon giapponesi e funghi corposi cinesi e’ facile e veloce, soprattutto se come me avete una coscia di pollo arrostita avanzata e volete utilizzarla in qualche piatto creativo e gustoso. Eccolo: In due cucchiai di olio soffriggere cipolla, pizzichi di cardamomo e pepe nero,  aggiungere il pollo, i funghi a pezzetti e anacardi spezzettati. Far amalgamare bene questi ingredienti, poi direttamente versarli su un piatto di udon scolati. Spruzzate anche qualche goccia di lime e servite.

Al giorno d’oggi ci sono troppe distrazioni intorno ed e’ superdifficile trovare persone con un attenzione sana, equilibrata, squisita, ferma e solida. seguiranno altri post sul fegato e come prendersene cura.
