I love smoothies and I'm always trying out new flavours as it is such a quick and delicious way to keep you full and happy !!
My favourite smoothie/shake before trying out this yummy avocado smoothie used to be strawberry banana and orange, but seriously after I got a taste of this rich and creamy smoothie I got hooked and guess what this is the 3rd time I'm making it in 2 weeks so so sooo good.
Somehow I never end up posting drink recipes but I just had to post this mind blowing avocado shake/smoothie. The actual name of this drink is Sin To Bo and it is a very popular Vietnamese drink.
You can add soy milk if you want to skip diary and also skip the condensed milk and add honey, but I say try it just the way it is supposed to be made. What say?
Here's the yummy recipe you guys !
Oh ya !
All you need for 2 medium size glasses
A very ripe avocado
Sweetened condensed milk (more or less to your taste)
Ice 1 glass
Milk 1 glass
A tiny bit coconut milk (optional)
All you need to do is blend everything till smooth and creamy and you are done. You can add less milk if you want the smoothie to be thick.
Steamed Chinese chicken rice is packed with flavour and mostly made in a clay pot, hence the name clay pot chicken rice, but I do not have a clay pot so I cook this dish in a basic non stick pan.
It still tastes amazing and so comforting, the best part is that this is an easy one pot meal.
One of our favourite weekend lunch.
Such amazing flavours in there ,you got to try it
You may use any vegetable, but these are what I like in this dish
beans ~ carrot, celery and spinach
1 cup jasmine rice - wash and drain the rice
medium ginger cut in thin large pieces
4 garlic clove slit in half
1 tsp coarse five spice powder
small pinch sugar
pepper and salt to taste
mix of soy and chili sauce
2 tsp chicken stock powder
1 cup boneless chicken Marination for chicken (marinate 1 hour)
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 tsp rice vinegar
some crushed chili
1/2 tsp sesame oil
a pinch sugar and salt
In a large pan or wok add some sesame oil and saute the marinated chicken. Cook for 3/5 min
Add in the veggies, I add the spinach later. Saute well for2/3 min then add in the five spice powder.
Keep the heat to medium and now add in the salt and sugar, by now the chicken will be half cooked. Add the rice and saute for 5 min the rice gets well coated by doing this.
Make sure to not break the rice.
Add in the sauces and saute another min, also add in the spinach.
I am using 1 cup of rice so I added 2 1/2 cups water , adding 2 1/2 cup water makes the rice a bit mushy, if you like the grains separate add in only 2 cups water.
Chinese pot rice tastes great when it is mushy and sticky.
For more flavour add in stock powder.
Wait for a boil and then immediately turn the heat to low and cover the pan with a tight lid.
Cook for 15/20 min and it will be ready !
Now your done !
Serve with a fried egg on top, the aroma and flavours will get you hooked once you try this recipe for sure. Enjoy !!
Here is a quick and yummy cheesy tuna casserole filled with veggies, coated in a creamy sauce and with a delicious crusty top. Serve it with a green salad or corn and dinner is ready in no time.
These kind of recipes are a great way to clear up any left over veggies before you go to stock up your fridge again.
You may also add any vegetable of your choice and make it along with chicken or entirely a veggie bake, my personal favourite is this simple tuna bake.
So for cheesy tuna and veggie bake you need...
1 can tuna
1 cup mix veg of your choice (I used cauliflower, beans, peas and carrots)
1 onion chopped
2/4 cloves garlic chopped fine
1 tsp oregano
1tsp dried parsley
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 tsp chili flakes
1tbs whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup half cooked pasta of your choice
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tbsp. butter and olive oil
1 cup or more cheese (add more if you want it super cheesy)
salt and pepper to taste
Start by adding butter and olive in a pan and then add in the onion and chopped garlic.
Then add in the mix veg, saute for 2/5 min
Add in the whole wheat flour and saute for 2 more min on low heat, also add in the chili flakes,oregano and parsley and cook another min.
Now add in the milk and stir, the flour helps the milk get thick and your creamy sauce is ready.
Add salt and pepper too,make sure to keep stirring to avoid any lumps.
Time to add in the pasta and the drained tuna,cook till everything is well coated with the sauce . You can add some cheese at this stage.
While this is cooking make the bread crumb mix, all you do is mix the bread crumbs with the cheese some Italian seasoning. Keep it aside for later.
It is time to bake now, add the tuna and pasta in a baking dish and bake covered with foil for 15 min on 180 c.
After 15 min remove the foil and top with the bread crumb cheese mix as shown in the above pic and grill uncovered for 10 min on 200c, bake longer if you want it more crusty, but do keep an eye, you do not want to burn it.
It is ready now. See the crusty cheesy top?
I served it with boiled corn and mint lemonade. It was perfect !
So hope you all try this cheesy and creamy tuna veggie bake, it is the bomb.
