Stir Fried Cauliflower, Sweet Bean and Fresh Shiitake Mushrooms

“Simple and delicious stir-fried mixed vegetables well liked by everyone in the family.”

I’ve posted a stir-fried assorted veggies with mushroom and fish ball recipe in my blog. This is similar with some adaptions from this previous recipe. But it’s less elements on the plate, yet more colourful, and cleaner looking now. Had the flower-shaped carrot slices to the mix for added texture and colour.

And, I did not use snow pea but the sweet bean, this time. In fact, I liked sweet bean. It does not taste sweet though. Sweet bean tastes and looks similar as snow pea, but it appears fuller in shape and its texture is crunchier than snow pea. More

Nutritious Lunch Idea, the Lunch Box Gourmet

“Bringing homemade lunch to work on regular basis benefited much on your time and pocket.”

Changing office location to town area was a hassle by far. It was a more hectic work as new, and for one who would be swearing for having to fight through a hubbub over peak lunch hour, I might end up skipping lunch or having just some fast food meals. Hence, I made effort to wake up earlier to make a lunch box was wise choice. So that the lunch crowd could be avoided and still enjoying a healthy and homey lunch box. Anyway, cooking is my favourite thing to do.

I had already prepared the ingredients the night before. Cut and washed the vegetables as well as marinated the pork chop, and then, stored them in the refrigerator. Woke up at 7am this morning, I quickly cooked rice. Then, cooked mixed vegetables and pan-fried pork chop. Filled the lunch container with rice and topped the dishes. Ok… My heart warming Pork Chop Paradise lunch box is ready to go! More

Crispy Cornflake Prawn Fritters

“Creates the real flavour out of its simplicity”

Using cornflakes to coat prawn fritters makes the dish special and imaginably delicious. The cornflakes crust created a much more crispy texture and aromatic flavor in the palate than the flour or bread crumbs coating.

I learned this delicious cornflake prawn fritters dish from an adaption of recipe in a small fast food recipe book complimentary with the purchase of a lifestyle magazine. More

Well, reduce or modify the additions, if necessary, as there is no hard and fuss rule in this recipe.
