Vegan Taiwanese Popcorn "Chicken" - Made with Seitan!

I love hanging out at boba tea cafes. In fact, I would say I probably am at some sort of bubble tea place at least twice a week. (In my defense, I'm in approaching my mid-semester exams, and these places always have pretty reliable WIFI!) Anyway, my friends always buy popcorn chicken with whatever tea they end up ordering, and when I was looking at them, I realized that they would actually be really easy to recreate with vegan chicken pieces.
You should be able to find some sort of seitan-based chicken in the vegetarian section of your supermarket. Just make sure you're buying seitan chicken that hasn't been breaded yet because you're going to be using your own special batter to get that Taiwanese snack shop flavor into the dish. (Beyond Meat or Gardein both make really nice chicken strips.)

Vegan Taiwanese Popcorn "Chicken"

(Makes 2 cups)
INGREDIENTS:
2 cups thawed vegetarian chicken pieces, cut into bite-sized chunks

To Make the Marinade:
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp five spice powder (This is a powder blend found at Chinese markets next to white pepper bottles.)
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tbsp shaoxing cooking wine
1/2 tsp white pepper powder
1/8 tsp black pepper powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp sugar
For the Batter:
Handful of fresh Thai basil leaves
1 cup corn starch
1/4 cup soy milk
1 tbsp five spice powder for dusting
Oil for deep-frying


DIRECTIONS:
1) In a medium bowl, combine the 'chicken' pieces and marinade ingredients, making sure to completely coat. Let sit for 30 minutes to an hour.

2) Pour oil at least one inch deep into pot or wok being used for frying and turn to medium high heat. In a small bowl, pour in soy milk. In a separate small bowl, pour in cornstarch. When oil is heated, coat pieces in soy milk, then in cornstarch, and then place into hot oil. Let the pieces fry on both sides until batter becomes a medium brown (about 3 - 4 minutes). You can fry a few pieces at a time. When they're done, remove and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil.
3) After you have finished with all of the chicken, drop in fresh basil leaves. The leaves cook quite fast, so you only need to fry them for a few seconds. Be careful as they might make a popping sound. Sprinkle basil on top of chicken. Sprinkle an additional 1 tbsp of five spice powder on top, and toss to make sure all pieces are coated with powder and mixed with basil. If you feel more seasoning is necessary, sprinkle a little more five spice powder. Serve immediately while chicken is still crispy.

Meatless Monday Recipe: Lasagna Rolls with Seasonal Greens
Living in Southern California, I am truly horrible at knowing which fruits and vegetables are and aren't in season. I'm also horrible at knowing which recipes are and aren't seasonally appropriate. This is why, embarrassingly enough, I'm throwing up cards for grilled watermelon in the middle of January and teaching you how to make ice cream in December. Thankfully, Isa of Post Punk Kitchen is a New Yorker, and as the Northeast is getting hit by a particularly nasty winter, she knows exactly what to recommend. It's spinach season! It's basil season! And fortunately, this recipe for green lasagna rolls uses both in quite the abundance. Whip it up at home, and share some with me. (Promise?) -------------------------------------------- Green Lasagna Rolls 12 oz lasagna noodles For the white sauce: 1 cup cashews, soaked for at least 2 hours 1/2 cup water 2 teaspoons cornstarch 1/2 teaspoon salt For the pesto: 2 cloves garlic 3 cups fresh basil, loosely packed 1/2 cup pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds), plus extra for garnish 1/3 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon salt Several dashes fresh black pepper For the ricotta: 1 14 oz extra firm tofu, crumbled 1/4 cup pesto 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon salt For the spinach: 2 tablespoons olive oil 6 cloves garlic, minced 10 oz baby spinach Make the noodles: Bring a big pot of salted water to boil and cook the noodles al dente, stirring occasionally to make sure they don’t stick together. If they seem to be, use metal tongs to gently peel them apart. Once cooked, drain them in a colander and run them under plenty of cold water to make sure they stop cooking and don’t stick together. Make the white sauce: Drain cashews. In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until completely smooth. This could take 1 to 5 minutes depending on your blender. Scrape down the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula every minute or so to make sure you get everything. Set aside. Make the pesto: Place garlic cloves in a blender and pulse a bit to chop. Add basil, pumpkin seeds, olive oil, nutritional yeast, lemon juice salt and pepper and blend. It should still have some texure and not be completely smooth. Thin with a few tablespoons of water to get it into a spreadable consistency. Make the ricotta: In a medium mixing bowl, mash tofu with your hands or an avocado masher, until it resembles ricotta cheese. Mix in pesto, nutritional yeast, olive oil, lemon juice and salt until well combined. Set aside. Make the spinach: Preheat a large heavy bottomed skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium low heat. Add the olive oil and garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add spinach and cook, stirring often, until wilted, about 3 minutes. Set aside. Assemble and bake: Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch casserole dish with olive oil. Spread 3 tablespoons of ricotta mixture evenly over each lasagna noodle, leaving a little room around the side edges and 1/2 inch at each end. Scatter about 3 tablespoons of spinach mixture over the ricotta. Starting at the bottom end, roll noodle up and place, seam side down, in the casserole dish. Continue with all remaining noodles. Pour the white sauce over the rolls in thick ribbons. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until edges are lightly browned and white sauce is thickened. If after 25 minutes the rolls are not browning but the edges are crispy, place under a broiler on low heat for a minute or two, keeping a very close eye so that they don’t burn. Remove from oven and smother on remaining pesto. Garnish with additional pumpkin seeds and serve!
Meatless Monday Recipe: Chipotle Black Bean Tortilla Soup
One full week into June means that we're well on our way to Summer! But I'll be honest - the weather has been a little bit strange here in San Diego. With Tropical Storm Blanca coming up from Mexico, the month so far has been unexpectedly cool and overcast - a bit dissuading for those of us who want to reach for our flip-flops and head to the beach! However, the wonky weather of Southern California's late Spring and early Summer always has me looking to make some unconventional soups. For example, I might go for some matzoh ball soup with a side of sauerkraut pirogi or sprinkle some Follow Your Heart cheddar shreds on a hearty potato soup. But perhaps my favorite soup for this weather is a bean-based tortilla soup garnished with a couple corn tortilla chips for an added crunch, so I can enjoy the flavors of summer while beating that untimely chill! Try this recipe with a number of different garnishes. Top it with a dollap of Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream or chop up some fresh slices of avocado. Either way, you'll find yourself falling in love with the slight kick and aroma of this soup - and have plenty of leftovers too! Chipotle Black Bean Tortilla Soup (Adapted From Minimalist Baker) MAKES 6 SERVINGS INGREDIENTS: For The Soup - 2 tablespoons avocado, grape seed, or coconut oil 1/2 white or yellow onion, diced 3 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 red or orange pepper, diced 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 1/2 cups chunky spicy salsa 4 cups vegetable stock 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or maple syrup (optional, to taste) 2 15-ounce cans of black beans cooked in salt, slightly drained 1 15.25-ounce can of whole kernel corn, drained For The Garnish (Optional) - Lime juice Fresh cilantro, chopped Red onion, diced Tortilla chips Ripe avocado, cubed Hot sauce Non-dairy sour cream (or cashew crema) DIRECTIONS: 1) Heat a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add oil, garlic, onion, pepper, a pinch each salt, and pepper, and stir. Cook for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are translucent and the peppers have a bit of color. 2) Add cumin and chili powder and stir to coat. Then add salsa, vegetable stock, and coconut sugar. Stir to combine, then increase heat to medium heat and bring to a low boil. 3) Once it’s boiling, add black beans and corn, and stir. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for 30 minutes or more, stirring occasionally. 4) Serve as is or with recommended serving options above. Leftovers will keep covered in the refrigerator for 5 - 6 days, or in the freezer for 1 month.
Meatless Monday Recipe: Quick & Easy Pad Thai Spring Rolls
Making pad thai at home is deceptively easy, but making spring rolls is ridiculously fun! Combine both, and you have the pad thai tofu spring rolls below - a quick and creative meal you'll definitely find yourself making more than once. You should be able to find spring roll paper, tamarind, and chili garlic sauce in the ethnic food aisle of your local supermarket and most Asian grocers. 10-Ingredient Pad Thai Spring Rolls (Adapted From Minimalist Baker) MAKES 8 ROLLS INGREDIENTS: For The Spring Rolls - 14 ounces extra firm tofu 8 ounces white or brown rice noodles 8 - 10 white or brown rice spring roll papers 2 cups thinly sliced carrots 1 large handful fresh cilantro For The Sauce - 3 tablespoons tamarind concentrate 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce + more for tofu 3 - 4 tablespoons coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup 1/2 lime, juiced 1 - 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce + more for tofu For Serving (Optional) - Peanut sauce (Check out my Vegan DIY: Thai Peanut Sauce recipe card.) Sriracha Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wrap tofu in a clean towel. Set something heavy on top - such as a cast iron pan - to press out liquid for 15 minutes. Then cut into 1/2-inch wide rectangular strips. 2) Arrange tofu on the baking sheet, giving each piece some space so it can firm up. Bake for 28 - 30 minutes to dry and firm the tofu. For softer tofu, bake for 20 minutes. For firmer, bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Set aside. In the meantime, prep carrots, cilantro, and cook rice noodles according to package instructions, then drain and set aside. 3) To make the sauce, add tamarind, tamari, coconut sugar, lime and chili garlic sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once it begins bubbling, lower heat to low and cook for 3 - 4 minutes, stirring frequently.Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more tamari or soy sauce for saltiness, chili garlic for heat, coconut sugar, agave, or maple syrup for sweetness, or lime for acidity. Remove from heat and set aside. 4) Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add baked tofu and 1 teaspoon each chili garlic sauce and tamari or soy sauce, plus 1 tablespoon of the Pad Thai sauce. Sauté, stirring frequently, for 1 - 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. 5) Add cooked noodles to the still-hot pan over medium heat and add remaining Pad Thai sauce. Use tongs to disperse sauce and toss noodles. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes, then remove from heat and set aside. 6) Assemble a station for preparing the spring rolls with a shallow bowl or plate (for dunking the rice paper), bring a kettle or pot of water to a boil (to cook the rice paper with), and a clean work surface (such as a large cutting board). Gather all ingredients and add hot water to the shallow bowl or pan. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes, then add 1 rice paper at a time and cook/soften for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Lift and let excess water drip off, then transfer to your clean work surface. 7) Top with pad thai noodles, tofu, carrots and cilantro, then roll over once, tuck in sides, and continue rolling all the way up. Place seam-side down on a serving plate or baking sheet and cover with a damp, room temperature towel to keep fresh. Continue until all spring rolls are prepared - about 8. 8) Serve as is with a bit more chili garlic sauce or sriracha! Another great addition is the aforementioned peanut sauce posted above. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Word. ------------------------------------------------------------- Thai Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Flautas Peanut Sauce: 1 cup peanuts 1 cup water 1 tsp brown sugar 1 tsp toasted sesame oil 2 Tbsp soy sauce 1 Tbsp lime juice 1 small red Asian chili Flautas: 2 tsp toasted sesame oil 1 stalk lemongrass, beaten and finely chopped 1 medium head cauliflower, finely chopped ½ yellow onion, diced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 small red Asian chili, minced ½ sweet potato, grated ½ cup Thai basil ¼ cup cilantro, chopped salt & pepper cooking oil for frying 8 small tortillas (corn or flour) 1. First, make the sauce. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. IF you have time, add another half or full cup of water and bring to a simmer in a saucepan as you prepare the flautas. If not, no worries! You can also just use peanut butter, instead of peanuts, if that's what you have on hand. 2. In a frying pan over medium heat, add the sesame oil and lemongrass. Let cook for a minute or two before adding the cauliflower. Cook for another minute (assuming the cauliflower is very finely chopped, if not — cook it longer!

When the oil is hot, work in batches placing each flauta seam-side-down in the oil. Cook until each side is golden-brown, rolling over to get all sides. 6. Top with extra basil, cilantro, peanuts, and lime. Serve with peanut sauce.
Travel Singapore: 6 Dishes You Have to Try!
I just got back from Singapore which was basically just me eating everything in sight for 4 days straight. Here are 6 things I had a loved, but keep in mind there are a billion other things you have to try there as well! (Not listed: chili craaaaaaaaaaab!!!!!!) Pictured above: Teh O Limau (black tea with lime!) 1. Murtabak Murtabak is a super tasty dish from the Middle East that I could probably eat every day. You can get nearly any filling you want (we chose one Chicken and one sardine) and it will be wrapped up in a delicious bread similar to na'an or paratha. We got curry to dip it in and it tasted fantastic! 2. Fish Ball Soup For the unadventurous or those who avoid spice, this fish ball soup is perfect. If you find that traveling gave you an upset stomach, this simple broth with some onion, noodles, and a few balls made from fish will have you feeling better in no time. Serious comfort food. 3. Carrot Cake Carrot cake is my favorite thing on this earth. Rather than carrots, it is made using radish that has been pounded into a soft almost noodle. Think gnocchi, but with radish! It's then fried up with egg and chilis, then (if you get black carrot cake) tossed around in some soy sauce. It's DELICIOUS. 4. BBQ Sting Ray The dish to the left is bbq string ray, the first thing I ever ate in Singapore. Its a fishy taste covered in a really awesome chili sauce. Once I got the fact that it was sting ray out of my mind, it tasted just like any other fish I love eating! 5. Popiah See that egg roll looking thing? That's popiah. At first I expected something like the Filipino dish lumpia, but it is so much sweeter than that. These spring rolls are common in Singapore, Taiwan, and Malaysia and are filled with fresh veggies. You can get them spicier, but they'll always have a distinctly sweet taste to it. 6. Kaya Toast (with Teh O) Made from a mixture of coconut and egg (which I just found out last week, after years of eating kaya...) Kaya jam is one of the yummiest things you can spread on toast. Traditional kaya toast has kaya and a few thick slices of butter sandwiched between two freshly toasted slices of bread. Usually its also served with soft boiled eggs which you can add soy sauce to. Get your kaya toast with some kopi or teh o (black coffee or black tea) to start your day right! I also tried Salted Egg Yolk Croissant, since salted egg yolk ANYTHING is a huge deal in Singapore right now. And to be honest, I really didn't like it. It tasted like what happens when you make icing and add too much powdered sugar. It was really dry and didn't even taste like salt or egg at all. Maybe it's not supposed to and I'm missing the point, but I wasn't a fan :/ Have you ever had Singaporean food? What's your favorite?!
Do you know these foods are great enemies for thyroid problems?
Nowadays, many people take thyroid pills. They need to take it forever, much like diabetic medications. Many of us are talking about foods that lower diabetes risk and related dos and don’t. Similarly, we should be aware of the foods to eat and foods to avoid for thyroid problems. Let us discuss it in this article. What is the role of the thyroid gland in our body? The thyroid gland creates hormones that control the body’s metabolic rate, which affects bone growth and maintenance, heart, muscle, and digestive function. It balances our energy and regulates our mood and body heat. A sufficient intake of iodine from the diet is necessary for its proper operation. Two common types of thyroids – Hyperthyroidism & Hypothyroidism When the thyroid produces too much hormone or too little hormone, it is called thyroid disease. The disease known as hyperthyroidism causes the body to burn energy more quickly than it should. Hypothyroidism is just the opposite to it. The body is consuming energy more slowly than it should because the thyroid is not making enough hormones. With many health conditions, some factors are out of our control, including our family history and the environment around us. But diet also plays a big role — and since you’re the one in command of your plate, you can determine which foods to choose and which thyroid foods to avoid. Some of the foods to avoid for thyroid problems  1. Cruciferous Vegetables These vegetables belong to the Brassic plant group. This vegetable has distinctive petals like cabbage. It is one of the important foods to avoid for thyroid issues. Some cruciferous vegetables are: 1. Cabbage. 2. Broccoli. 3. Cauliflower. 4. Bok choy. 5. Brussels sprouts. 6. Kale. 7. Mustard plant. 8. Turnips. 9. Garden cress etc. You might wonder why cruciferous veggies should be avoided for thyroid health. More fiber and other nutrients are present in these plants. However, they might block the generation of thyroid hormones. If you are iodine deficient, you will experience additional effects. Iodine is necessary for a healthy thyroid operation. Therefore, it is best to consume fewer cruciferous vegetables. According to studies, eating these vegetables may prevent the thyroid from using iodine. Cruciferous vegetables that have been cooked can lessen the effect. So you can consume cruciferous veggies in moderation while avoiding salads made of them. 2. Fatty foods Butter, meat, and all things fried are fatty foods. According to Stephanie Lee, MD, Ph.D., associate chief of endocrinology, nutrition, and diabetes at Boston Medical Center and associate professor at Boston University School of Medicine in Massachusetts, fats have been found to interfere with the body’s ability to absorb thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Additionally, fats may prevent the thyroid from producing hormones. Some medical professionals advise avoiding any fried foods and limiting your consumption of fats from sources like butter, mayonnaise, margarine, and fatty meat cuts. 3. Soy Foods Even soy and meals containing soy are very good in protein and can prevent cancer and heart disease, but they also have some effects on thyroid issues. But according to current research, soy has no impact on thyroid hormones.  It is generally advised to take thyroid medicine on an empty stomach to prevent inconsistent absorption. Soy is the greatest food source of isoflavones which are linked with thyroid disorders. If you consume soy-containing meals, make sure to wait four hours between eating them and taking your dose. This is true because soy can interfere with proper thyroid medication absorption and cause uneven medication effects.
