It is very simple and delicious. You may use any different sorts of vegetables, including baby corn, aubergine, etc. This time, I used okra and carrot which works very well together!

Braised Seafood and Vegetables with Rice

I love dishes with a rich, thick sauce packed with flavour from the ingredients after you stew them. For me, this is a perfect combination with plain boiled rice. Unlike some other cultures, which prefers flavoured rice, we usually have plain boiled rice. Therefore, the sauce is a very important element in our dishes. We can mix this sauce with plain rice. My favourite braised dish is sliced beef and egg with rice, the beef and egg are so tender but full of flavour. Yesterday, I wanted to have a similar dish and found some frozen mixed seafood in the freezer, so I quickly went the Tesco nearby and grabbed some mixed vegetables, the Braised Seafood and Vegetables with Rice is quick and easy to make! The rich and thick sauce from the dish is from the large amount of water-corn starch mixture. I made it at the ratio of 2:1 which gives the right consistency. Feel free to use any other ingredients you may like. This is super simple and easy dish to make.

Chicken Roll

Chicken thigh is an ingredient I like to use for cooking. It is easy to cook and has varied possibilities: From stir fry chicken with vegetables to Teriyaki Chicken. Recently, I use it to make chicken rolls. You can put anything you like inside the chicken roll – as long as it is delicious, no one will complain. Unlike the western style where you make it with spinach and cheese inside, I am going to use carrots and celery to pan fry it with soy sauce. This is by far my favourite way and easiest way to make chicken roll. Crunchy carrot with tender juicy chicken. Hope you will enjoy it.

Vegetables Soup

This soup is inspired by the New Covent Garden vegetables soup. When I traveled in Edinburgh recently, I tried this soup and I was very impressed by its richness. I used the ingredients as a reference and made my version of this vegetables soup. This is my first time I’ve use swede. It is not common in Asia so I was not sure if I would like its flavour. To my surprise, the taste was great and it worked well with other vegetables. Feel free to use different combination of vegetables such as sweet corn, turnip, etc to make your very own version of this vegetable soup!
