Blanched Gai Lan Dressed With Rice Wine & O Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp chicken stock
1 tbsp shao hsing wine, or dry sherry
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 to 1 1/2 pounds gai lan (chinese br, occoli)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp peanut oil

Recipe Preparation

Gai lan is Chinese broccoli. It's not much like the Western stuff.
It has thinner stems, flowers and leaves and is eaten more as a green.

Combine the oyster sauce, chicken stock, Shao Hsing wine, sugar and
sesame oil in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until sauce
thickens. Set aside.

Wash the gai lan in cold water. Trim off and discard the tough
bottoms. Peel stalks if they are thick and tough; leave gai lan whole
or cut into thirds.

Bring 3 to 4 quarts of water to a boil in a wok or stock pot; add the
salt and oil. Add the greens, bring back to a second boil. Turn off
the heat and let greens stand for a minute or two. When the green
stalks brighten, test one for doneness. It should be tender and
crisp. Drain immediately and shake off excess water.

Transfer to a platter, pour dressing over, and serve immediately.

Serves 4 to 6.

Food Tips of the Week

Diet tips

At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods. Although you can buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carb bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is hard, whizz it in your food mill. To store, keep in a tupperware jar or container.

* Know what is in your food Don't trust food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the back of the package. A good number of are only slightly less and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identical.

Healthy foods with carotenes
(includes parsley, kale and tomato puree)
