Food: playing around


From time to time I feel lost in term of what to eat. I don’t want the same thing anymore (chao stir-fries), I want something exciting, fun, new, tasty and filling food to eat. So creativity and imagination (both that I’m not good at) come to play.

Since last week salad I’m hooked with avocado. I picked 4 large avocados last week and every morning the first thing I do is to check whether another one is ripped 😯

For breakfast I’ve been having either this

I made a batch of black rice, aduki beans and barley. So I’d either add white fungus or simply avocado.

Both are YUM~

As meal, I’ve been having spinach cannelloni. For the sauce I used 1/3 cup pumpkin puree, 2 tbsp nutrtional yeast and 2 tbsp of milk.

Love this meal~~~ 🙂 It’s so easy (just heat the frozen cannelloni and make the sauce, 5 min top) and so tasty!

Last weekend Star and I went to the farmer’s market. I’m so happy to see more fresh produce! I got a bunch of greens.

soft boiled egg (insert the egg into boiling water for 1-2 min, turn off the heat, cover and wait for 3 min more)

I said I’m obsessed with avocado but you only saw it in breakfast once. How come? Well… I’ve been eating a lot of salad, all massaged with 1/2 large avocado. For the dressing, I used miso/pumpkin/tahini/mustard mix. I’m loving the flavor of this dressing.

A salad with fat (avocado and tahini) and protein (salmon) is a full meal. You’d be surprised that a salad can satisfy you so much and for so long (at least 4 hrs).

Q: What’s your favorite way to eat avocado?

  2. White fungus with avocado?!?!! sounds a fun combination! I love avocado too, but it is just so difficult to get a ripe one!

  3. Everything looks soooo goooooood! I love avocado on a sandwich or tacos. Yum!

  4. All these eats look so beautiful! I like to mash avocado with laughing cow cheese or layer it in a sandwich. I bake with it, too. If a recipe calls for mashed banana, I’ll use mashed avocado instead! YUM!!
