花椰菜起司濃湯 Cauliflower Cheese Soup


花椰菜,屬十字花科蔬菜,與甘藍菜,捲心菜和羽衣甘藍為同樣的植物家族。所有十字花科的蔬菜都能提供人體所需的不同營養成份,如:維生素、礦物質、蛋白質和碳水化合物等。 
現在一年四季都能買到花椰菜,但本地產的話,則每年的 12 月至隔年 3 月是花椰菜的最佳品嘗季節。我喜歡買回來炒,或與綠花椰一起汆燙,然後,灑上刨碎的起司放進烤箱焗至微焦。 更喜歡用它來煮湯。 
Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable. It belongs to the same family as broccoli, kale, cabbage and collards. They're a particularly nutritious vegetable family, providing vital vitamins, minerals, proteins and even carbohydrates. 

Nowadays you don't have to wait for it to be in season to get your hands on it; it's available all year round. However, it's at its best from December through till March. I love using them in a stir-fry, or roasting them in the oven along with some broccoli, topped with cheddar cheese to make a lovely vegetable bake. But one of my all time favourite ways to use this versatile vegetable is in a soup.

烤番茄甜椒湯 Roasted Tomato and Red Sweet Pepper Soup


好朋友沈倩如取我書中的其中一道食譜做了這個烤番茄甜椒湯,並拍下了如此美麗的照片!

她不准我謝她,又不讓我宣揚她的過人之處和優點;更不許我提及她出色的專業攝影和獨特的作者風格。

我只能引用 E. B. White 在經典兒童故事 Charlotte’s Web 中所說的:『 不常有成為你真正好朋友的人,也是一位優秀的作者。』倩如就是那位真正的朋友,她還是一位傑出的攝影師!

自製照燒醬紅燒嫩豆腐 Pan-Fried Silken Tofu cooked in Homemade Teriyaki Sauce


我們全家都愛吃豆腐。但最接近的唐人街離住處那麼遠,要經常買回來做菜並不容易。幸而每間大型超市一年四季都有那些紙盒包裝的絹豆腐。它們真的又軟又滑,吹彈得破!但別以為絹豆腐這麼幼嫩便很難處理,其實只要付出一點心思和時間,你可以把這些非常健康營養的好東西變化為極之美味的菜餚。一經嘗試之後,相信這道菜式將會成為你心愛的食譜,一款你會不時重覆為自己和家人泡製的拿手小菜。

We love tofu, but living so far away from the nearest China town means we can’t always get it as often as we would like. Luckily local supermarkets do have those carton-packed silken tofu on the shelves all year round, they are really silky-smooth and delicate. If you handle it with care and cook it with love and attention, this super healthy and fantastically delicious dish will be something you love to cook for yourself and your family all the time.

烤地中海式蔬菜和布利乳酪帕尼尼 Toasted Panini with Brie & Mediterranean Vegetables



今天,我想用昨天吃剩沙拉盒內的朝鲜蓟 artichokes 、曬乾番茄和烤甜紅椒,加些布利 Brie 乳酪來做一款地中海式蔬菜帕尼尼作我們的午餐。因為我知道這些餡料都會很厚和很大塊,我們那枱家庭式的小帕尼尼三明治機一定掩蓋不下。便決定改用一個鑄鐵長方條紋鍋代替。

Today I wanted to use up the left over artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and roasted sweet red peppers from the Mediterranean salad box we had from yesterday, adding some Brie to make us some vegetarian panini for lunch. Because the filling would be quite chunky, I used a cast iron square griddle pan to grill the bread instead of our small domestic Panini sandwich maker.

無麵粉巧克力蛋糕 Flourless Chocolate Cake



這是個非常簡單易做的巧克力蛋糕,但在我們心中,它並不只是一個普通簡單的巧克力蛋糕。

This is a very simple and easy to make chocolate cake, but it's no ordinary chocolate cake in our hearts and minds nevertheless.
