Since I said my cooking was a dish meant to be incorporated into my dieting program, I have to adapt Grandma’s cooking into my own recipe, in a healthier way. More

Chow Mien (Stir Fried Chinese Yellow Noodle 炒面) for Toddler

“Get a child to get oyster mushrooms in this simple vegetarian Chow Mien? How about having it better by adding the super food, Quinoa, as well as liquid aminos, into his meals?”

My son loves the Chinese yellow noodle (Chinese alkaline noodle), usually being prepared in soup as fish balls noodle soup selling at most of the hawker centers, food courts and coffee shops in Singapore and other parts of Asia.

This thin yellow noodle would also commonly be cooked in fried noodle (Chinese Chow Mien) or the Mee Goreng (Indian fried noodle) style which easily found selling outside. Having that said, these fried noodles selling at the stores are usually over seasoned or spicy. More

Mushrooms & Pea Sprouts Stir-Fry

“It’s just the abalone sauce you need in your stir fry!”

In order to fully appreciate the freshest taste and natural sweetness Of the fresh pea sprouts as well as the highly nutritious mushrooms, minimal use of condiment to taste is more than just required. I needed only the abalone sauce in my recipe.

If you are a vegetarian, use the mushroom sauce. Otherwise, the Abalone sauce is the best to go with this stir fry! That’s because the golden spring mushroom (金源菇) used in this recipe yields a tinge of ‘seafood’ taste after cooked. Hence, adding abalone sauce was sure to good in enhancing the flavor of this seafood-tasted mushroom in the dish. More

Stir-fried Cabbage with bottled Teatree Mushrooms

“Low fat healthy cabbage dish, cooked with bottled mushrooms.”

For busy working adults and parents, they have most of their precious time occupied with work and children, so much so that they left very little or no time for themselves. However, they are still willing to sacrifice it so that they could prepare delicious homecooked meals for their loved ones. They do not mind at all, as long as their loved ones are happily eating the nice warm food after a long day out…. but having said that, it would be grateful, if there are more healthy yet instantly ready food products available in the market cater to these groups of people to make their cooking less hassle, I guess more individuals will not hesitate to cook at home, just like me. I changed my job from nearby my house to the CBD area, I have to spend 2 hours more in commuting to and back from work every day. Cooking dinner on daily basis has become a chore, in that sense. However, I never thought of giving up, but strive to find more ways to make my cooking easier and convenient. And, I have added these bottled mushrooms to my ‘convenient food list’ recently. Through an email introduction as well as the sample tasting of these mushroom offered by the marketing team of Yifon, I was able to experience the greatness in these healthy and convenient bottled mushrooms. They did not set any conditions on promoting these products, but on my own accord, I thought why not just share my tasting experience with my readers here since it is genuinely a product that worth trying, in my opinion. Anyway, I used it in my recipe.

The first dish I cooked using one of the mushrooms was a simple one, the Stir-fried cabbage with Teatree mushrooms. I was contemplating between the Teatree mushrooms or Golden Needle mushrooms, initially, and decided to go with Teatree mushrooms for a change since Golden Needle mushrooms have already been commonly used in vegetable dishes. Moreover, the Golden Needle is spicy flavored and spicy vegetable dish wasn’t my desire at that point of consideration. Otherwise, the Spicy Golden Needle or Spicy Nameko mushrooms would have been a good choice. Well, I knew I have made a great choice. Indeed, the Teatree mushrooms complement well with the cabbage stir fry, and its supplementary flavour did not fail to elevate the taste of my cabbage cooking. Actually, this was not the first cabbage dish I have cooked with mushrooms. In my previous Stir-fried Cabbage recipe, I used Shiitake mushrooms. However, without these flavoured mushrooms, I have to season the dish with more condiments. In another word, I do not have to remember to add many seasoning in my cooking now to make my cabbage dish taste wonderful. More
