So i bought some kimchi saurkraut (which is yummy by the way….its saurkraut with kimchi seasonings), and had no idea what to do with it. My reference is saurkraut wih potatoes and sausage.
So thats what i did. White rice, potatoes in tamari and shrimp sausage. I basically used a shrimp burger recipe and shaped it as sausages, rolled in foil, froze to firm up and baked them.
From the silver palate, i am making arancini…and from my brain, shrimp meatballs.
Raw peeled and deveined shrimp in the vitamix
Maybe a little too vitamixed.
I added some gluten free bread crumbs and lemon juice…dill, salt
Meatball shaped, dipped in bread crumbs. Put it in the freezer …
Brought them back out and up to temp and fried
Finished off in oven
TVP soaked in tomato andWorcestershire and vitamixed
Draining the rice before mixing in butter and parmesan
Omg…i could stop here…buttery/parmesany rish rice cooling and drying.
Rolled up, filled with a piece ofmozzarella and tvp/tomato mix…then dipped in egg and then gluten free flour
Aperol spritz for jim and campari spritz for me
Pasta with chard and the shrimp meatballs
Egg noodle gluten free pasta was a fail.
Shrimp meatballs were perfect and arent so delivate icant sauce them better
Arancini…smaller next time. But thatnrice was wonderful, i really did learn a new technique.
So ive been craving kimchee fried rice…and made that plan..as the rice was chilling after its 10 minute ride theough the multicooker, i changed my mind…and rice bowl we became after axing the idea of bimbimbop and kimchee chigae (spelling?)…and i had this lovely kale, cabbage, beet, carrot mix already prepped so away i went
In the pan went garlic oil and chili oil (cant ise sesame in myhousehold whoch im sure is another reason i have had kimchee on the mind)
It just got a light saute and wilting
Meanwhile, i drained and rinsed some french lentils for the protein..
Using the same pan with some wxtra garlic and vegetable oil, i started to fru the dry jntil the pan was hot and in went the two eggs
Right here..you have to move your spoon or whisk or whatever fast and kinda whip the eggs and rice so its not egg clumped in rice like regular fried rice…its egg coated fluffy rice…and its creamy! I love it
Here is a dressing of toasted garlic, red pepper flakes, ginger, tamari, rice vinegar and a little vegetable oil
Here it is all composed with the dressing over it..i ate mine warm but jims is sitting at room temp until he returns from (surprise!) doll club meeting…i had the oven warmed but that will kill the greens.
I really did enjoy this meal as i often do when solo….it eveolved to such a degree that i have a peeled reed avocado that didnt get used…
