Veggies bourguignon

Beef bourguignon is one of French traditional dishes. It needs time to marinate meat and slow cook. I could say it’s so delicious. By the way, Veggies bourguignon is quite delicious as well, I have to admit that. The ingredients are the same as beef bourguignon but you replace meat with veggies. In my recipes I used ancien vegetables… I actually made vegetable in the oven, I had so much left over so I turned it into viggies bourguignon. I just added some red wine and laurel, salt, sugar and black pepper then some cooking time.

Here we need

1 parsnip

2 carrots

3 potatoes

half of pumpkin

1 rutabaga

1 celery rave

garlic, shallots, olive oil

Bourgogne red wine

seasoning

2tbp of wheat flour

sugar ( I used it to adjust the taste of wine )

salt, black pepper

thyme , laurel, 2 cloves

How to make it

  1. Pre heat the oven to maxi for 15 mins
  2. I cut my veggies in pieces added salt, black pepper, olive oil, garlic, shallots, thyme, laurel all in one then seasoning as your taste and put in 30 minutes in the oven. ( you can enjoy your veggies like that and add some balsamique venegar or you can continue to the step 3 )

     

  3. Transfer the veggies in a hot pan, stir with some olive oil then add 1 or 2 tbp of wheat flour ( corn flour). Keep stirring to cook flour with veggies.
  4. then added red wine, keep stirring. You can add some veggie broth if you have or water. keep stirring about 5 mins then lower the heat to the lowest.
  5. now you can add some sugar , then cover the pan and let it cook for 20 mins. Ps- keep your eyes on it cuz it can burn so keep stirring from time to time. you can cook longer if you think it’s necessary.

Now here you have it mmmmm

A handful of bean sprouts

A pin of paprika or chilli

Vegetables oil or olive oil

Little bit water

Homemade sukiyaki sauce Here the recipe ( don’t use fish sauce if you are vegetarian )

How to make

 

  1. Hit a large pan on a stove then put oil then you put the rice noodles in. Stir well, put little bit water to cook the noodles. Then put a full table spoon of sukiyaki sauce and keep stirring.
  2. Wait until it’s almost cook, you can throw the bean sprouts in then follow by another 2 tbp of sukiyaki sauce ( or as much you need. Depend on you taste). Stir well!!!

Spinach bed and sweet Tofu

I opened my fridge, I found some ingrediants which I did’t really know what I should make. I love creative foods and I also love traditional foods. I thought of Loc Lac which once again is one of my favorite. So I combined the creativity and traditional recipe to satisfy myself. Normally, we use beef as meat in Loc Lac recipe. Today we use our tofu to be our heavenly delicious meat. mmmm… It was my first attempt and the result was quite interesting, my daughter and I loved it.

My little Lunch

Such a beautiful day and I had couple hours free from work. I just walked out to grab a lunch at my neighbor’s restaurant, Café Marmot. I was welcomed by Ben and Jes, the two beautiful people. Since I am on my vegetarian period, they suggested a dish for me it was Brocolli Tarte. That was the 2nd time I ate veggie tarte.

Sweet potato is not only delicious but also rich of multi vitamins, iron, potassium. That’s maybe the reason why we should eat more sweet potato. Hihihi,,, Well, talking about being healthy, pizza does not gain so much reputation as a healthy food. But the trick is depends on what you are going to put on your pizza.

1 sweet potato ( cut about 1 cm thick and cook them )

Morbier cheese ( cut in small cubs )

Grated Gruyere cheese, some Gruyere thinly sliced for topping

1 egg

pizza dough

seasoning

black pepper

olive oil

How to make

  1. Turn on the oven for the highest temperature. I should skip repeating this part LOL
  2. On our Pizza dough you spread generously olive oil or little bit if you don’t workout alot 😛 . Then you put Potatoes on top and follow by cheese, salt and pepper.
