Chinese Sweet Roasted Chestnuts

Thursday, November 26, 2009



Chestnuts offer high fiber, mineral and cholesterol-free benefits of tree nuts, without the calories and fat content. And they are gluten free! They also are the only nut that contains a significant amount of vitamin C. Like all plant foods, chestnuts contain no cholesterol. So why not "go nuts"?

  • 500 g Chestnuts
  • 500 g Salt (or coarse sand)
  • 1 tbsp Sugar syrup
  1. Using a small sharp knife, carefully score chestnuts by making a single, 1/8-inch deep slit across the center on the rounded side of the nut, to keep them from exploding during cooking. Rinse and soak in the water for 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Place the pan filled with salt and drained chestnuts on medium heat. Stir fry the chestnuts until the salt has turn lightly browned, drizzle the sugar syrup over while keep stirring. Continue stirring until the shells open up and look dark brown.

Lamb’s Lettuce Salad with Mango and Avocado

Tuesday, November 24, 2009



Lamb’s Lettuce, (Feldsalat auf Deutsch), also sometimes called field or corn salad, has a slightly nutty, tangy flavor. (My husband can't stand it because it's too green;) The name 'lamb's lettuce' appears to stem from the fact that it tastes best during lambing season, and some people also call it 'lamb's tongue', because the leaves resemble small tongues.
Like many zesty-flavored foraged greens, lamb's lettuce has a high nutritional value. It typically provides several vital minerals and nutrients, including vitamins C, E, and B9, along with beta carotene and essential fatty acids. Commercially cultivated lamb's lettuce may not be as nutritionally rich, depending on farming practices, but it is generally more beneficial than conventional lettuce.

SaladDressing
  • 1/2 Mango
  • 1 Romaine lettuce, rinsed
  • 100 g Lamb’s lettuce, rinsed
  • 1/2 Red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 Avocado, pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 80 ml Canola oil
  • 80 ml Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Raspberry vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dried parsley
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 Shallot, chopped
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Salt or to taste
  • 1/5 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Peel and pit the mango, cutting the flesh into 5mm cubes. Place the mango cubes in a large salad bowl. Tear the lettuce leaves into bite-sized pieces and add to the salad bowl with the lamb’s lettuce, and onion.
  2. To make the dressing, in a clean jar, combine the oils and vinegar. Add the parsley, garlic, shallot, honey, salt and pepper. Close the lid and shake furiously until well combined. Pour just enough dressing over the salad to moisten it, then toss to coat evenly. Garnish with the avocado slices and serve.

Almond Butter Slices

Saturday, November 14, 2009



Recipe Source: Dr. Oetker A-Z Backen

Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the same type of health-promoting fats as are found in olive oil, which have been associated with reduced risk of heart disease.
In addition to their cholesterol-lowering effects, almonds' ability to reduce heart disease risk may also be partly due to the antioxidant action of the vitamin E found in the almonds, as well as to the LDL-lowering effect of almonds' monounsaturated fats. (LDL is the form of cholesterol that has been linked to atherosclerosis and heart disease). When almonds are substituted for more traditional fats in human feeding trials, LDL cholesterol can be reduced from 8 to 12%.
In addition to healthy fats and vitamin E, a quarter-cup of almonds contains almost 99 mg of magnesium (that's 24.7% of the daily value for this important mineral), plus 257 mg of potassium. World's Healthiest Foods

  • 125 g Butter, softened
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 20 g Vanilla sugar
  • 100 g Almond slices
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a 30x40cm baking tray with paper. Combine the sugar, vanilla sugar and almond slices for the topping in a bowl. Set aside.
