Old dog, old tricks

I finally got it together to pull some old tricks in the New Place.

The dodgy looking … matter in the bowl is my first successful Vietnam attempt at almond bread / cake. Ingredients are pretty simple – baking powder ( mixed myself from baking soda and cream of tartar ), a duck egg, and almond flour, or ground almonds.

It soaks up anything – I could use it to mop the bench – and is healthy and satisfying.

In today’s case, it’s on the menu with the crockpot dish above. That’s Basa fish, red peppers, pak choi, and carrots. Here’s the directions – throw the veges in with some water, bring to the boil, let cool, add fish. Maybe some salt. Simmer. Forget until hungry.

At chow-down time, I’ll usually add coconut cream, and maybe turmeric, but today, I’ll be sampling it with said almond bread.

Phwoar !!

  1. Hello O’Neill, wow, that there looks good enough to eat, I could certainly be tempted to have a lashing! Im guessing its satisfying but dosent leave you with a big lump sitting in the belly…
    I see you’ve found a local coffee haunt…whats youre favourite style? I’ve gone back to good ol fashioned italian dark roasted beans. With a lashing of full milk cream, it dosnt leave you ‘searching’ for its flavours…hits you smack in the face. A couple times a week is my quota though, unless…hehe

    Cheers, Jeremy
