Ayam Tauco (Chicken Cooked With Salted Yellow Recipe
1 medium roasting chicken
4 cloves garlic
2 tsp dark soya sauce
3 tbsp tauco (salted yellow beans)
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp paprika (optional)
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup tamarind water
1 cup water
This recipe calls for 'tauco' which can be either salted black beans
or salted yellow beans. Either can be found in a Chinese market as
salted black bean or salted yellow bean sauce. Or you can track down
Indonesian salted yellow beans and smash 'em up yourself. Thai
markets carry them.
Cut the chicken into serving pieces; wash, and dry. Slice the onions.
Pound the garlic and the tauco into a smooth paste.
Fry the onions in the oil for half a minute. Add the tauco, then the
chicken. Stir well, so that every part of the chicken is coated with
tauco. Put in the soya sauce and the rest of the ingredients. Cover,
and simmer very gently for 45 minutes. Then take the lid off, and
cook for a further 5 minutes to reduce the sauce. Serve hot.
Makes 4 servings.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Don't trust food labeling that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins baking mix. In many cases, you can change your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
