new years resolutions. one of mine was to cook more asian food. a really good resolution. a result of this is of my latests discoveries: this bowl of wonder. it’s like eating fluffy clouds spiked with great greens and chili.
the clouds (serves 4)
200 ml white quinoa
250 ml coconut milk
150 ml water
ca 1 tsp salt
a little bit of coconut oil/flavorless oil
rinse the quinoa and fry in the oil for about five minutes. add water, coconut milk and salt. bring to a boil and then simmer for 15-20 minuter on low heat. while cooking the quinoa prep the greens.
brussel sprouts (one net), peeled and cut in quarters
200g edamame, if frozen thawed
4 handfuls of leaf spinach, rinsed
1 bid clove of garlic, finely chopped
1/3 of a chili, finely chopped
a small piece of ginger, finely chopped
ca 2 tbsp fish sauce
juice from 1/2 a lime
a mini-dash of soy sauce
a handfull of fresh cilantro
a dash of olive oil
fry the brussel sprouts in oil together with garlic, chili an ginger. after a little while add the edamame, lime juice and fish sauce. adjust to flavor and add soy sauce if needed. divide the quinoa into bowls, top with fried and fresh greens and cilantro and then enjoy.
