Low-Carb Cheesy “Toast”

“My toast ain’t bread. It’s low-Carb food. It’s vegetable!”

Yes, having on diet to shed away the final round of my baby weight for the past few months, I learnt to eat low carb food. This is one of the dishes I have learnt to make, to replace high carb ingredients, once in awhile.

You may call this a “toast”, “pancake”, or “Rosti”. It’s made of mashed cauliflower as its main. I liked it a lot as it’s just yummy and doesn’t taste like vegetable. Even my toddler son ate it. To me, it resembled a cheesy pancake meal. :)

Papaya Snow Fungus Sweet Soup with Black Sugar (木瓜雪耳黑糖水)

“Come, learn the correct method, follow the actual steps, to cook this nourishing papaya snow fungus sweet soup in my recipe.”

Just realized that I did not have my papaya snow fungus sweet soup recorded. I thought I did, but apparently only having the savory version as well as the adaption with winter melon. Well, this was a great time to showcase it as I boiled this nourishing goodness with Okinawa black sugar instead of rock sugar. It turned out to be even tastier and smoother mouthfeel. For sure, black sugar is healthier version of sugar than other kinds of sugar, especially for women, as it provides nutrients such as Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium. Plus, this sweet soup helps in nourishing the lungs as well as skin complexion. What’s more can I ask for?! :D
