Stir Fried Pumpkin Shoots with garlic 清炒南瓜苗



One Pumpkin plant came out from my dig-and-compost pile and flourish to a big plant not long after. For the whole 3-4 months that it was growing, it gave me plenty of flowers, just no fruit!

The growing season is coming to and end for the year and my pumpkin plant is still showing no sign of fruit. I decided to harvest the shoots instead. I will have to say, it is the best green vegetable I have had for the year!

今年初时我家门口花圃里的堆肥堆里钻出一颗南瓜苗。我很爱吃南瓜,所以特别高兴。可是等了好几个月,花是开了不少,却一只南瓜都不给我结。

南瓜季节已经来到尾声,我家的还是一只南瓜都没有。一怒之下,把南瓜尖全摘了,用蒜蓉清炒了吃,非常爽脆美味,也算收获过了。

Edamame in Rice Wine Brine 糟毛豆



I planted about 10 soy plants around summer and they all thrived and gave a pretty good yield of green beans, which is also the snack edamame that we normally have at Japanese restaurants.

I prepared the first 2 batches of my edamame with spices --> this way.

For the third batch, I wanted something different and marinated the cooked beans with Shanghainese wine brine, it infuses unique wine flavor to the beans and is such a good snack to go with a glass of cold drink!

后院种的毛豆结了不少的毛豆荚,收成了好几茬。头两茬我做了好吃的凉拌毛豆

第三批我想做点不一样的,就买了瓶糟卤,做了这款糟毛豆。非常香,非常好吃。明年一定还要再种毛豆!

Taiwanese Mooncake (Mung and minced meat Fillings) 台式月饼【绿豆椪】





With Mid-autumn festival just around the corner, it is the time of the year again to enjoy the mid-autumn delicacy Mooncake. 

I made the cute piggy mooncake using the Cantonese mooncake recipe before. This year I decided to try something different and go all the way traditional to make the very old fashion Teochew "Orh-Nee" Mooncake and this Taiwanese Mooncake 绿豆椪. 

I used my minced pork for Gon Loh Fun as filling to this mooncake, it turned out to be the best match and tasting so good that I had to make two batches !

中秋节快到了,又到了社交媒体满屏都是月饼的时候。我前几年做了一次小猪猪月饼后,因为家门前的Costco开始卖台湾产的广式月饼,就一直没有再开工做月饼。

今年我想做点不同的月饼,就选择了传统的潮州(朥饼)月饼 和这款台式月饼绿豆椪。

我用了我的多用途干捞粉肉臊做这款绿豆凸的内馅,味道非常搭,朋友们吃了都说好,结果一共做了两批都还不够吃呢!
