Oct 23, 2020

Uncategorized

From the Chef: I used to look forward to pumpkin pancakes at my favorite breakfast place Sunday mornings in the fall. Once my daughter was born, it just got too hard to get out of the house.

For large beefsteak tomatoes, I cut them in half...

A Note from the Chef: In the US, bean sprouts are likely one of two variety, Mung and soybean. Mung is the most common and found in many supermarkets. They are a vegetable grown by sprouting the bean itself. They are remarkably high in protein yet, very inexpensive. We enjoy their crunchy sweetness most often in salads but, many cultures enjoy them quickly cooked in water and shocked in ice water (blanched) and then, sautéed. For a quick side dish at dinnertime, they can be microwaved for 20-30. Although...
