Fresh bamboo is my latest obsession. I can’t get enough of them. I add it to everything. It’s hard to describe the taste. But I think the closest thing would be palm hearts. So I thought I’d share this with you. If you see it at the asian market, give it a try~ 🙂
This is how it looks. In my local asian market, $2.99/lb
First peel it off everything that is brown.
Then boil the entire piece in hot water for 5 min.
This is what you get. It’s pretty small compared to the size of the original bamboo.
cut in your desire form and add to the meal.
If you can’t find fresh ones, there’s canned too. It’s much cheaper but less tasty and less crunchy.
I used it as topping for pizza
other toppings in this pizza: oyster mushroom, zucchini and mozzarella.
To stir-fries. This one has also bok choy, mushrooms, green peas and salmon.
this one has green cabbage, green peppers, black fungus, bamboo and dry shrimp.
all these stir-fries were made with this magic sauce: olive preserved olive leafs
in less than two weeks, I’m seeing the bottom of this jar 😉
I made a batch of brown rice/aduki/barley. It tastes like dessert!
served with stir-fry and a poached egg
I’m succeeding on microwave poached egg!
and rice cake with bok choy in a very spicy sauce! 😯 What happens to my taste buds lately? I crave spicy food!
I did a lot of online shopping today! My purse “hurts”. I’ll post them soon 😉
Have a nice weekend everyone. Mine will to be fantastic!!!!!!
