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

Losing weight

Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* You can create really nice smoothies with reduced carbohydrate yogurt. Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you are missing your smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as the fiber is important too.

* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried foods. Whilst you can sometimes buy low carb breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in an airtight jar or container.

Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes eschalot, onions and welsh onion)

The onion and garlic family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is not enough, definitive proof present, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to reduce symptoms with colds, sterilization and insomnia.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
