Thursday and Friday were a bit crazy so didn’t get a chance to post. Here is a rundown of days 3 through 5.
Thursday, Day 3 – Quick, easy, and delicious
Work, class, mega sleep deficit…had some patjuk in the fridge that I heated up and ate along with marinated perilla leaves and grapes. Quick and simple. Patjuk is a Korean red bean (adzuki) porridge. Soak and cook red beans, make a puree and add a bit of water, cook with rice, a pinch of salt, and then add balls of rice-flour dough. It’s not as salty and savory as say black bean soup would be. This website has a basic recipe. There is a sweet version of this porridge that can be eaten as a dessert/snack.
Friday, Day 4 – A weird/quirky food combo I love
What exactly is a “weird” food combination? And which ones do I love? I came up with just a couple contenders. Here is a simple one – chopped/ground toasted fennel seeds, add to mashed banana, cook on skillet for caramelized and crispy goodness, put on toast. Optional peanut butter or drizzle of tahini. Enjoy!
Saturday, Day 5 – Best sandwich ever
Maybe not ever, but pretty darn good using what we had on hand.
Darn good sandwich:
- whole wheat bread
- sautéed red onion and mushrooms, with thyme and rosemary
- marinated artichoke hearts
- hickory smoked Tofurky deli slices
