Tja, wat doe je ermee? Het ziet er in ieder geval mooi uit, zo'n steranijsje. Maar ze zijn ook nog gezond en lekker.
Hier leg ik uit dat je er o.a. thee van kunt maken, dat het al eeuwenlang in de Traditionele Chinese Geneeskunde wordt gebruikt als medicijn, en dat het juist NU, tijdens de herft, nuttig is om steranijs te gaan gebruiken. Het is een onmisbaar ingrediënt in de Chinese keuken, maar ook in Thailand en Maleisië wordt het veel gebruikt. Wil jij meer weten over kruiden en specerijen? Kom dan eens langs om één van mijn kookworkshops. Op vrijdag 17 November 2017 staat er weer een geplanned die al volgeboekt zit. Maar er komen er méér. Hou deze site dus in de gaten of schrijf je in op de gezonde nieuwsbrief voor updates.
I'm usually not too crazy about meat replacements, as in a slab of soy on your plate. Don't like soy, for a reason, this is for another blog. I'm very interested, though, and always look out for good replacements, as I don't eat a lot of meat. Some of them have the right ingredients, lots of vegetables and not too many perservatives. But often they contain gluten, so that's a no-go for me. So I just stick to the real thing instead, real meat, in small quantities, organic.
Last week I was intrigued by this seaweed burger sold at the Jumbo. I love everything seeweed. Not only because of the flavour, but also because of its health benefits. It contains lots of iodione, calcium, iron, to name a few. Most of us are deficient in iodine, which is necessary for a good thyroid function. This particular burger was also gluten free! The ingredients also looked promising. But the flavour.... I would have loved this one to taste good but it was a bit disappointing. It was very peppery, or, there was something spicy about it that was overruling the seaweed taste. I can handle some spiciness and found it intriguing that I could not find anything on the ingredients list that could cause the spiciness. Maybe, maybe, without the pepper (or chili?) it would have been alright? Maybe a bit more herbs to enhance the flavour?
Anyway, I always try to highlight the positive rather than the negative, so here might be the solution: my husband ate the other burger (very brave I must say) and he added some mayonaise. He said it was 'not too bad' with mayonaise. So, I will give it another try in a few weeks time and will try it with mayo. I would love this brand to be successful, because this is just what I'm looking for in my food: nutritious, healthy, fair, environment friendly. Way to go Olijck! May my little tiny blog help a lot ;o)
