I don’t like broccoli and only eat them because I have to. 🙂 I hope they gives me iron, lots of them because I am going to try, (try only) to donate blood and hope I do not get rejected again (been rejected twice).
So, I bought this large head of broccoli and was stucked with finishing them.
At first, I made a salad with it by blanching them in hot water with white button mushroom, red capsicum and tomatoes. I used French vinaigrette. Anything this colourful must surely be healthy, right?
Yesterday, I finished off the broccoli by making loh han chye with them. Recipe given in my Food Haven blog.
I do not have the neccesary ingredients needed to make loh han chye so I just put mung bean noodles, broccoli, carrots, canned button mushroom and red capsicum.
I ate it as a meal on its own, minus rice as the mungbean filled me up. Do try stir frying vegetables with the Chinese red preserved beancurd (ang tau joo in Hokkien or fu yi in Cantonese, picture can be found here). It has a distinct flavour and sort of cover the ‘green’ smell of vegetables. It is something you either like or simply hate it.
Hope to bring real food with real oomph when I finished my vegetarian fast. Less than 20 days to go….
