Vegetables compote

It’s vegetables compote after a while of heavy dining. Kinda combine what’s available from the fridge and cooking them in their natural flavor as far as possible. Brunch today was a balanced meal of white porridge (carb), green spinach (fibre and vitamins), soya sauced minced pork (protein) and poached red snapper (protein). A superb ‘fine…

Great tofu respect

I’ve great respect for tofu. It’s clean, affordable and best of all nutritional. Also it’s universally available and the versatility is endless. ย Original soya bean (Japanese – soft beans) is soaked in water, squeezing out the milk, the left over is further compressed to create tofu. Some of the many iconic bridges I’ve crossed around…

The heat is on

Weather forecast for Singapore – no rain till end of July. It’ll be hot and humid! At noon, around 31 degrees, but it feels like 36. I’ll like to escape to a cool place right now, and hibernate there. That place will be Yosemite valley. We did, in 2016 winter and hibernated in a cosy…

10 Veggies dish

Will prepare a 10 veggies combi, a stir fried vegetarian dish. It’s called ‘lo hon chye’ (in Cantonese) whereby 10 types of vegetables are braised / stir fried and eaten on 1st and/or 15th of the Chinese calendar month. Today, we’re just trying to eat healthy. For travels, it’s castle hopping in Ireland. First stop,…

Rice porridge on a gloomy day

Is rain beautiful? I think it is. In Singapore, rain cools my place down, making cooking more delightful in the wet kitchen outside my ๐Ÿ . However, the weather is gloomy and makes photography dark. Today’s travel will be to Singapore, a little red dot in South East Asia. Ingredients Simple rice porridge, with julienned marrow…

Salad fusion

Today’s lunch will not induce food coma. Having tried hard to swim regularly, lunch today will follow the eat well, keep fit motto, ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ trying… trying hard, haha. In Tasmania, we drove to Freycinet, Wine Glass Bay to catch sunset. It’s was quite a race, under estimated the distance, and by the time we climbed…

Roasted pork leeks bliss

It’s a simple roast pork with leeks dish. Simplicity is bliss. I’ll try to combine glimpses of my previous travels with current cooking methods hoping you’ll enjoy Ahgoodfood better. This photo shows the steepest steps I’ve ever seen – leading to ‘heaven’, Angkor Wat highest point. ย Each step is narrow, about half the size of…

Stir fried marrow green

When I found this squash in the supermarket, I just had to buy it, to recreate a dish that grandma used to cook. I’ve been searching a while for marrow green, I do not often see it available, so I grab 2 on sight. Whilst researching, realised it’s another super food. Ingredients Preparation 1) Wash…

Poached fish, fried prawns and vegetables

Daughters will come home for dinner, yeah! We flew 8000+ miles for this, to cook dinner so they can have home cooked food. I had bought mostly seafood as they don’t get to eat fish, prawns when they order in at work or cook for themselves when they have the time. But I didn’t have…

Mixed veggies

We’ve eaten a bit much today, started with chicken rice for breakfast. What a luxury to be able to eat chicken rice before hiking in the Macritchie reservoir, and then shared a poke bowl for lunch. Dinner better be light, how about just mixed veggies? ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡ Ingredients Chose 10 types of vegetables including Nai Bai,…
