My adventure on trying natto bean… numbered by left to right, top to bottom.

#1 came with mustard and soy sauce – I find the mustard quite spicy and while the soy sauce tasted good on it’s on, over all I didn’t love it.

#5 I love it, love the taste. comes with soy sauce and mustard.

#6 taste is not the best, the soy sauce and mustard packs are fancy tho. also the bean foamed a lot

#7 – smaller bean. Came with soy sauce only. Over had a bitter after taste.

Pan fry the veggitable to half cooked as well. 

And then add everything into the rice cooker to cook the rice. 

After mixing still try to have the rice grains submerged in water.

3 cups of rice makes a pot of congee. 

3 pieces of Chicken + sesame oil 

Or 

One slab of basa filet 

Scallop , clam and shrimp + rice wine 

Instruction: 

Soak rice overnight for quick cook 

Defrost seas food or chicken overnight. 

Bring rice and water to a strong boil and then add in chicken / seafood and slices of ginger. Once water come to a strong boil again, turn off the heat, cover and let sit (2 hours ). 

Then you get your delicious creamy congee 😀 

IMO the sesame made the congee smell really good! But the clam may have tasted a little too fishy to my liking.

1tbs butter (soft, @ room temperature)

1tsp, thyme, rosemary, black pepper,

sprinkle of salt

4 cloves of garlic

rub everything together and then mix with the potatos (1.5lb + 2fist sized ones).

baked at 400 for 30mins-1hour. I think it was more like 30mins, mix and then another 30mins.

baked this for a potluck and I think the butter killed it! everyone said it smell amazing 😉

recipe taken from simplyscratch

Ingredients:

1 recipe for Homemade Pizza Dough

1 recipe for Homemade Pizza Sauce, divided

1 8 ounce brick of Mozzarella Cheese, grated (1 bag of 340g grated mozzarella + cheddar cheese)

15 thin slices of Sandwich Pepperoni

10 thin slices of Ham

12 thin slices Genoa Salami

instead of using all those ham I used 300g of honey ham

1 whole Egg

1 tablespoon Water

3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees and line a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper

On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to a large rectangle.

Spoon on 8 tablespoons of pizza sauce and spread it over 3/4 of the pizza dough leaving an 1/2 inch border on three sides and a 2 inch border on the longer side.

Sprinkle with half of the grated mozzarella and top with the pepperoni, ham and salami. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

In a small bowl whisk together the egg and water and brush the edges with the egg wash.

Fold over the three {1/2 inch sides} and using the parchment paper, roll the dough 1/3 of the way. Grab the other side of the parchment {the side with the 2-inch border} and fold it over the rest of the way. Position the stromboli in the center of the pan, seam-side down.

Brush the entire thing with egg wash and make diagonal slits for venting. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 375 degrees and continue to bake for 10-12 minutes more.

Remove and allow the stromboli to cool for 5 minutes before slicing 1 to 2 inch strips.

Serve alongside the remaining warm pizza sauce for dunking.

I think I left mine at 500C for way too long hence too brown and burnt bottom

I sorta followed her pizza sauce recipe but instead I used

1 chopped onion (I forgot to prep mice)

3 cloves of garlic

1 1/2 tsp thyme

2tsp salt (too much!)

black pepper

chili (I like the kick to my sauce)

16oz diced tomato (miced)

1/4 C white wine

my sauce was way too watery so it took me and hour simmering to reduce 😥 !!

but the amount of sauce turned out perfectly, 8tbs goes into the pizza and a small bowl of sauce left for dipping 🙂

I wish I have sun dried tomato

I think I’ll make this next: http://www.laurenslatest.com/fail-proof-pizza-dough-and-cheesy-garlic-bread-sticks-just-like-in-restaurants/
