Korean Style Veggie Pancake

  


I was craving Korean pancake and whipped this together.  I like to put a ton of veggies.
 
I made a version of this with chickpea flour before and it wasn't that great. You can see my blog post about that here: https://www.abundanceofvegetables.com/2020/02/korean-style-seafood-bok-choy-chickpea.html

Here's what I did for this experiment. It made about 4 pancakes and turned out pretty yummy. Try it out!

Ingredients for Pancake:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup chopped kim chee with juice
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/4 large white onion, sliced
  • 10 cloves garlic
  • 1 egg 
  • dash of salt
  • 2 Tablespoons hot chili oil for cooking 
  • sriracha for garnish and flavor
Instructions:
  1. Prepare ingredients as listed above (chop, shred, slice).
  2. In a bowl, add flour, egg, kim chee, and slowly add in water while mixing to create batter.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and toss well.
  4. Heat pan.  Add oil.
  5. Add some of the mixture and let set for a few minutes before flipping over to help keep the pancake intact.
  6. Flip and let cook through.
  7. Garnish with some sriracha stripes.
  8. Enjoy!

Lemongrass pork skewers with cucumber, kim chee, fish cake, and tofu

 

I bought a bottle of lemongrass marinade from a store in Honolulu called Chef Zone.  I tried it with some chicken thighs and it was delicious.  So I decided to try it out with some pork shoulder as well. I sliced the pork shoulder into strips and marinated it overnight.  Then I skewered them onto some bamboo sticks and air fried them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, flipping over half way through.  I served it with some kim chee, fish cake, cucumbers, and tofu. Yum!

Air fried Jalapeño Poppers

  

I had some leftover cream cheese from another dish and found this recipe to use it up.  Pork panko was substituted for regular panko. They're not as good as the classic deep fried ones, but it's a good alternative.

Here's the link to the original recipe: https://www.spendwithpennies.com/jalapeno-poppers/

Carnitas with Cauliflower Rice and Santa Fe Veggies

 

My local grocer had pork shoulder on sale.   I found a recipe for slow cooker carnitas that asked for some orange juice.  I already had some orange juice from a haul that I harvested from my parents garden and that was an ingredient so this was perfect.  I paired it with some cauliflower rice, mixed veggies, a sprinkle of cheese, and a spritz of lime.

Here is the link to to the original recipe I used for carnitas: https://www.recipetineats.com/pork-carnitas-mexican-slow-cooker-pulled-pork/

Gumbo

 

I recently went on a trip to New Orleans, Louisiana.  I attended a demonstration class at the New Orleans School of Cooking where our instructor, Ms. Harriet, showed us how to make gumbo, chicken creole, and pralines.  They also served us a local beer called Abita.  The recipes for the food were given to us, placed on our tables.  I thought the gumbo was super delicious so bought some spices and made a couple batches when I got home.

 

Here's the link to the school where you can book a class or order their spice mixes and hot sauces.  I liked the green hot sauce the best. https://neworleansschoolofcooking.com/

Here's the original recipe below.  Sorry it's small and crooked.  To get the full experience and a nice (straight) copy of the recipe, you'll have to go to NOLA and attend a cooking class yourself.  😄

Sautéed Radishes

 

I got a small bag of radishes because I thought it would give a nice pop of color and crunch to a green salad.  It did indeed,  but then I didn't know what to do with the rest of the bag since I only needed one or two.

I found a recipe online for a sauteed radish side dish.   I served it with a turkey burger, onions, jalapeno slices, and some banana and apple slices with a sprinkle of cinnamon.  I like a variety of foods in my meal.  The radishes were similar to a scalloped potato, and the butter and seasonings took away the bite that you have when it's raw. 

I substituted lemon juice for lime, black pepper for white pepper, and dried parsley for fresh parsley.

Here's the link to the original recipe: https://www.landolakes.com/recipe/20291/sauteed-radishes/
