Shin (black) Instant noodles. Spicy Pot au Feu flavour. Far more intriguing than most instant noodles.

Once again caramelized onions and blue cheese on toast. So good. I have just enough onions left to do it again and I might just do that for lunch.

Jerusalem bagel unearthed from the freezer.  Husband brought them home from the city on the last day he went in to the office before the work from home orders were given.

@Anna N and anyone else who likes blue cheese toast, try this. GH is so fastidious I'm a little surprised she instructs you to slice the Cambazola. It isn't very sliceable in my house, even when cold. So I pay no attention to that. Also I don't bother with the microplane for the garlic, jus squeeze a bit into mix. Other types of blue cheese could probably be subbed, and we won't tell her. It's very yummy.

 

GABRIELLE HAMILTON’S CELERY TOAST

 

2 slices country white Pullman bread, 1/2-inch thick

Sweet butter

4 ounces Cambozola triple-cream blue cheese, sliced, divided evenly between two toasts

1 cup shaved celery, from the inner head, toughouter stalks removed, thinly sliced on the bias

2 scallions, thinly sliced on bias all the way up from the white through the green

1 large clove garlic

Extra-virgin olive oil

Lemon juice

Kosher salt

Several grinds black pepper

 

Toast the bread to golden. Butter generously, “wall to wall.” Lay cheese slices on top of buttered 

toast, neatly, evenly. In a small bowl, stir together the celery and the scallions. Microplane the 

garlic into the celery mixture.

 

Dress with olive oil, lemon juice and salt, and stir very well, until completely dressed, almost wet 

with dressing. Mound the shaved celery salad evenly on top of the blue-cheese toasts, and 

grind black pepper over them very generously. Cut each in half or quarters.

 

**Lest anyone believe that I make this for breakfast, let me set you straight. I don't. To me, this is cooking, and if it can't be thrown in a toaster with six atoms of brain power it isn't going to happen. I love it as part of a late lunch or an app before dinner..

There are quite a few mentions of that delicious recipe around here - and for good reason - so delicious!

 

This has been my breakfast for the last 3 days.

Sweet potato and bacon quiche with parsley from Melissa Clark's Dinner in French. Not bad but not my favorite quiche.  It is lacking aliums.

Because I am hoarding flour and am generally lazy, I used a ready-made pie crust that must have been past it's prime as it developed so many cracks.  The random slices of cheese you can see here and there were my attempts and plugging them 🙃

I put some roquefort on top of today's slice and found it an improvement.

@liamsaunt - I have never in my life seen a bagel like that!  How big is it?  How do you eat it?  So many questions.  I am enamoured of sesame seeds, so the abundance of them looks so wonderful to me!!

 

@blue_dolphin – between you here and @chileheadmike on another thread, I am inspired to make quiche.  Just took out my recipe from the “egg” section in my recipe binder and looked at my freezer list and it looks like I have everything except enough eggs.  I should be able to get those one way or another. 

 

Breakfast this morning:

Now, that sandwich looks like it has been made with a slice of toast that has been split in half yielding two thin crispy slices???

I used to do that all the time at home as a youngster....that way one can use more butter because you have to butter both sides!

I make a good dumpling sauce.. soy sauce, vinegar, sichuan pickled soy bean, srirracha, this other chinese chili pepper sauce, sesame oil, water and this bbq sauce.  

 

To me, the vinegar, the bbq sauce and the pickled or fermented soy are the most important flavors..

24 - 48  @  135 F  

 

just to get tender , and keep as much of the pork favor in the meat

You know, i have only used this sauce for hot pot dips and dumpling sauces.. I know there are a variety of uses.,. I have not explore these other uses. 

 

Reading some amazon reviews: 

 

Quote

This is a very unique sauce and will help you recreate various Teochew Fujianese recipes. The number one ingredient after the copious soybean oil is something shown on the ingredients as Brill Fish also known as lizardfish. These are fairly small very thin ocean going fish like a large anchovy with big teeth that really have no other use besides this style of sauce or condiment. Another related speciesof Brill fish is known as Bombay Duck in India and is sold and traded as a salted dried whole fish that is not a duck at all. In any case the fish is cooked in oil until dried and granular in consistency so this sauce is not smooth or runny but somewhat grainy for a mouthfeel. Cocounut powder and dried shrimp also add to the grainy consistency. So why use it? Because it gives a deep complex flavor to your dishes. As a Sa Cha sauce that is nothing like a Satay Sauce with peanuts, it is the product of Teochow ingenuity and helps to create a depth of flavor in your regional Chinese recipes from Taiwan and the Fujian diaspora. Give it a try but go slowly at first to see just how much Bullhead BBQ sauce you need toamp things up to your own personal taste. It is somewBut hat like a solid fish sauce of Vietnam or Thailand as a little can really change the overal taste of your dish.

 

Quote

"Also known as "Sa Cha Sauce" , this stuff is AWEsome!!! There are other brands but this is THE best. Don't let the name throw you off, it's NOT sweet like "BBQ sauce" we most know. AND don't run when you open it - looks like a can of coffee grounds in chocolate syrup-motor-oil and MOST important, do NOT throw away the oily part! First thing I do is transfer the stuff into an airtight plastic or better, glass container (keep stored in the fridge). This metal can is ok if you have nothing else but does leak from the top. You will need to mix well every time you use it - the ground stuff sinks to the bottom and get a big sturdy spoon. It's savory, not sweet, not too salty with a flavor hard to describe and is great by itself as a dipping sauce, marinade for shrimp, chicken ... anything. One of my favorite things to do is make a dumpling (potsticker) dipping sauce (can be used also as a marinade):"

 

 

The bulls head bbq sauce is actually sa cha sauce 

 

Quote

Shacha sauce (Chinese: 沙茶; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: sa-te; also spelled sa cha sauce), or paste is a Chinese condiment primarily used in Fujian, Teochew, and Taiwanese cuisines. It is made from soybean oil, garlic, shallots, chilis, brill fish, and dried shrimp. It has a savory and slightly spicy taste.

 

 

In terms of what you are thinking about,  I kind of like the idea of a char siu better.. BUt, i don't really know how it would come out.. I am thinking it's like an umami anchovy sort of thing.. Like a fish sauce would.. i make a pretty good marinade with I think brown sugar, lime juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, oil, cilantro and garlic..    So, working on those flavors, where you have the acid (lime or chinese vinegar), the fish, the sweetness (sugar or hoison), maybe some heat (ginger/garlic) and the freshness of cilnatro, it could be really good...

"Poached" eggs on toast

IMG_2306.thumb.jpeg.9bf23399aa681963a6d5024b274a7d14.jpeg

The quotes are because I used the little silicone poach pods that I received as a gift and have been kicking around in my cupboards for years.  

I know @Anna N has used them in the Instant Pot and others have used them as well.  I just used the basic simmering water method for 4 min.  Looking down at the top of them, I feared they were over cooked but no - just right for me!

Omelette à la Lyonnaise from Richard Olney's book “Simple French Food”. I had a bunch of onions that were about to go bad and voilà this was the perfect solution. Onions are reduced in butter for 30 minutes, then added to 3 beaten eggs and cooked as on omelete. When done, pour some brown butter on top of the omelete. To that brown buttered pan add one tablespoon of wine vinegar, swirl it for the vinegar to meet the leftover butter brown bits and pour that on top of the omelete.

The last few days it has been a pint of water, a small yoghurt with some tinned fruit (all of my mandarin oranges have been sacrificed for juice for Johnnybird's Amaretto sours - he likes the juice from them instead of lemon juice in the drink). I also scored a cranberry scone that was rich and flaky and two crumb buns that I cut into half or quarters.

It was about six inches long.  I think traditionally they are eaten with hummus, but i just ripped off pieces and dipped them in cream cheese.

 

My sister baked biscuits this morning, so I had one buttered with a peppery egg

      Couldn't find a topic devoted to sourdough discard cooking, so thought I would start one and see how much interest it would generate. Moderators, if there is a topic, please merge.
       
      Recently I have begun making sourdough bread and am caring for a sourdough starter. Since there is currently some difficulty finding flour (due to COVID-19 related supply chain issues, etc.) I don't want to throw out any of my sourdough starter. I am also following guidance from King Arthur Flour and Cooks Illustrated for working with a small sourdough starter (10 g. flour | 10 g. water | 10 g. sourdough starter) and using recipes that use smaller amounts of sourdough starter or only building my starter up if called for by a recipe.
       
      I have made the following recipes and would make them again:
      - King Arthur Flour sourdough discard crumpets. https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/sourdough-crumpets-recipe
      - King Arthur Flour sourdough discard waffles. I used a mix of yogurt & milk instead of buttermilk but otherwise made the recipe as written.  https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/classic-sourdough-waffles-or-pancakes-recipe

      Breakfast in India vs Breakfast in our homes outside India
      My breakfasts have varied from the time I started to cook for myself instead of just enjoying my Mother’s cooking. At first they were a mix-match of meal fixings, or just dinner leftovers. Or the good old breakfast cereal and milk. But as the years passed and I was more organized, the meals I enjoyed in my Mother’s home began to swim in my memories. And I began to prepare those for my family. However, I am no amazonian chef, so depending on  the hectic nature of the days plans, I switched back and forth from convenience with taste, to elaborate and of course tasty breakfasts. We do have both vegetarian and non vegetarian foods but Indian breakfasts will mostly be vegetarian. 
      So here are some of the things I might make: 
       
      1. Poha as in mostly ‘kande pohe’.
      2. Cheela/ Pudla
      3. Masala toast
      4. Indian Omelette
      5. Handwo piece
      6. Thepla
      7. Vaghareli rotli
      8. Dhokla chutney
      9. Idli sambhar
      10. Leftover sabji
      11. Muthiya
      12. Khakhra
      13. Upma
      14. Paratha
       
      1. Kande Pohe: 
      The dish derives its name from Maharashtra where the Kande Pohe are celebrated as breakfast. They can of course like any breakfast, be eaten at any time. 
      Pohe/ Poha are steamed rice grains that have been beaten flat and then again redried. So they are like Rice flakes. Except they are hand pounded, so have a knobbly texture. 
      You get several varieties in the market. I prefer the thick white variety. 
       
      1 cup dry poha per person
      1 medium onion sliced
      1/2 jalapeno deseeded
      1 sprig curry leaves
      2 small garlic cloves
      1/4 t cumin seeds
      1/2 lemon 
      1/8 t asafoetida
      1/4 t turmeric
      small handful of cilantro leaves
      1T fresh grated coconut
      2 T Peanut oil 
      salt to taste
      sugar to taste
       
      In a pan heat some oil and add cumin seeds. When the seeds sputter, add sliced onions and stir. Saute on medium heat till they turn slightly browned here and there. Do not burn the onions. 
      Meanwhile wash the Poha in a colander and drain. Do this two or three times to get rid of any dirt and also to allow them to rehydrate. They do not need soaking. Fluff the poha with a fork. Add salt sugar turmeric asafoetida and chopped cilantro. Mix and set aside. 
      Once the onions are ready add minced garlic and chopped jalapeno along with the curry leaf sprig. 
      Turn the heat to low and add the poha mixture. Stir to coat and to allow the turmeric and asafoetida to cook. The poha will turn mildly yellow and start giving a wonderful fragrance. 
      Turn off the heat. Fluff gently and plate. Garnish with fresh grated coconut and a squeeze of lemon juice. 
      Finger licking good!! 
      Now when I make this next I will post a picture. 
      Update: Ok I felt the urge to have Kande Pohe for tonight’s dinner. So here is a picture. I am certain to enjoy it for breakfast as well. The measurement of 1 cup poha per person is too much for one meal. But carried over to another meal thats super good! I will also have some stir fried bok choy greens made in the same kadhai after the poha was done, and some cooked and sliced beetroot for salad. My family will add some haldiram sev on the poha for extra crunch! And we will all have some chaas to round off this meal. 
      *************
       
      2. Cheela/ Pudla
       
      These are essentially crepes but in the Indian style. 
      1/2 cup sieved garbanzo bean (Besan) flour. 
      Water to form a thin batter
      1T plain yogurt 
      1/2 t ginger garlic paste 
      1/4 or less green chili crushed
      2 t heated oil *
      pinch asafoetida
      pinch turmeric 
      salt to taste
      chopped cilantro (two sprigs)
      some ‘masala’ from a readymade pickle
       
       
      Method:
       
      mix the ingredients together except oil. Heat oil in a separate pan and add about 1 to 2 t of the hot oil onto the batter. It will sizzle. Use a whisk to stir thoroughly. The batter should be pouring consistency. 
      Let the batter soak for about half an hour if possible. 
      On a hot griddle, pour a ladle full of the batter. Turn the griddle with your wrist to spread the batter around. Cook on moderate to high flame. Flip the crepe when all the sides look like they are ready. You can add a little oil to the sides of the frying pan to make the edges crispy. 
       
      In my home we usually have a Besan cheela with some yogurt its a quick and filling breakfast. You can have a small salad or fruit with it to make it more complete. Or fill the center of the cheela with some cottage cheese and fold for added creaminess! 
      ****************
      3. Masala Toast : 
       
      1 slice of bread (your choice) toasted
      1/2 small red onion minced
      1 medium roma tomato diced (or whatever you have)
      cilantro (few leaves)
      1/8 t cumin (optional)
      1/4 t chaat masala ( available in stores)
      1 inch cube paneer
      1 T peanut oil
      pinch turmeric (optional)
       
      Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onions. Add the tomato and cook down to mush. Crumble the paneer and add the dry spices. Stir for a few seconds to warm the paneer. Add the cilantro and though I have not written it as an ingredient, I like a few drops of lemon juice. Do not overcook paneer.
      I started this topic because someone asked for Indian recipes on the new forum. I don’t think they have seen any yet. I hope they find this useful. I am enjoying it. 
      **************************
       
      I will add recipes to the list slowly. I have to however add that after a certain ‘age’ I have now resorted to having to make sure I have three things for breakfast besides coffee: a glass of water, a small portion of fruit and a small portion of some protein not necessarily meat.

      I developed this recipe for a friend who wound up with many cans of Solo brand apricot filling and was wondering what to make with them. I adapted this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Sour Cream Coffee Cake, found on page 90 of the Cake Bible. The apricot filling works it way down through the cake and winds up near the bottom of the pan, making an attractive top later when the cake is inverted. Please use some sort of ring pan that holds at least 9 cups. You may substitute butter for the toasted almond oil, but remember that the oil adds flavor. I specifically developed this recipe with the home cook in mind, regular salted butter, and AP flour work well here. To reduce the sodium, use unsalted butter.  
       
      Ingredients
      113 grams (1 stick) salted butter
      26 grams toasted almond oil
      200 grams sugar
      6 grams vanilla extract
      4 egg yolks
      160 grams regular sour cream (do not use low fat or fat free)
      50 grams almond meal
      175 grams all-purpose flour
      2 1/2 grams baking powder
      2 1/2 grams baking soda
      12 ounces (1 can) Solo Apricot Filling
       
      12 Servings
      Preheat the oven to 350°
      Spray a 9+ cup tube or Bundt pan with non-stick spray or grease with an oil & soy lecithin blend.
       
      Lightly toast the almond meal in a frying pan on the stove top until it has a light beige color and has a mild fragrance. Allow to cool.
       
      Cream together the butter, oil, and sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolks, mix until the mixture is even and creamy. Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the cooled almond flour and mix well.
       
      Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix until it everything is evenly incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.
       
      Place 2/3 of the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Place the apricot filling in an even layer on top, keeping a small space between the filling and the pan's edges. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth to create a relatively even surface.
       
      Bake for approximately 50 minutes at 350° or until the top is dark brown and springs back to a light touch.
       
      Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto a serving plate. Cool and serve. Be cautious about serving this hot, as the apricot filling can cause serious burns. When fully cooled, cover or wrap in plastic wrap to store. Will keep for several days in a cool, dry place.
