Bistro lunch

|Bistro lunch set|

I’m always so tempted to buy new kitchen toys whenever my new cooking idea comes up.

There are just so much out there in the market like blenders, food processors, panini presser etc, but they all comes in only one function, and end up your kitchen is piled up with machines that you may not even use twice a year.

Earlier on i was tempted to grill steaks at home so I got myself a grill pan, but other than grilling steak I hardly use it.

And then later I tasted the difference between a panini pressed sandwich and a toasted sandwich, I was again tempted to get a panini presser, and then I came up with this idea.

Why not grill and press my sandwich on my grill pan?

– Turkey sandwich with avocado and wasabi dressing –

you need:
– 2 slices of bread
– pinch of salt and pepper
– 5 slices of turkey breasts
– 1 piece of lettue
– 1/4 ripe avocado
– 2 slices of tomatoes
– 2 teaspoons of wasabi flavoured sauce for sandwich
– 1 teaspoon of maple syrup

you will:
1. spread the avocado with a small spatula on one piece of bread
2. sprinkle some salt and pepper
3. place turkey breasts and then top it with tomatoes
4. then mix the wasabi sauce with maple syrup and spread on the other piece of bread
5. assemble the sandwich and grill it on a preheated grill pan, press and grill one side after the other carefully using a spatula

– Green leaf lettuce salad with mixed berries and avocado –

What you need:
– green leaf lettuce
– bluberries
– strawberries
– pomogranate
– avocado
– pinch of salt and pepper
– balsamic vinaigrette
– olive oil
(amount used on the materials depends on your own preference)

What you do:
1. wash, dry and cut the lettuce
2. slice strawberries and avocado (or dice it if you like!) and prepare blueberries and pomegranate
3. to ensure freshness of the fruits, mix and toss the lettuce with ith olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette before adding the fruits
4. sprinkle some salt and pepper

 

|Bistro式午餐|

每次當你有新煮意的時候都會有衝動想買一個新的玩具嗎?

現在除了攪拌機、食物處理器、窩夫夾還有Panini三文治夾等等,其實又買得到幾多呢?現在大部分生產商為了謀利,推出一大堆只有一個用途的產品,市場上的策略就是要針對個別用家,不過其實實用性還是很低呢!

例如為了煎一塊有坑紋的牛扒,我特意買了一個grill pan,雖然可以用來煎其他肉類,不過用途就只有-煎。

接著在某Bistro吃過用Panini夾烘的三文治,我又想買一個Panini三文治夾。當然最後還是被理智煞停。

最後利用一些小創意既可以將原本用來煎牛扒的grill pan,利用鑊剷將三文治小心反覆按壓於grill pan上就輕易做出圖中效果。

火雞肉牛油果日式芥末三文治—

材料:
-兩片方包
-1/4個熟透牛油果
-少許鹽+胡椒粉
-5片火雞肉
-1塊生菜
-2片蕃茄
-2茶匙三文治用日式芥末醬
-1茶匙楓樹糖漿

做法:
1.利用牛油刀將熟透牛油果搽上其中一塊方便
2.曬上少許鹽和胡椒粉
3.將生菜葉放上已搽上牛油果的一面上,然後利用廚用剪刀沿邊剪掉凸出的生菜
4.然後放上火雞肉和蕃茄
5.將wasabi醬和楓樹糖漿攪拌,然後搽上另一片方包上
6.最後放上預熱後的grill pan,小心利用鑊剷將三文治兩面反覆按壓。

p.s. 避免使用生菜硬的莖部,這樣會比較難將三文治夾好

雜莓牛油果生菜沙律-

材料:
-生菜
-藍莓
-草莓
-番石榴
-牛油果
-鹽+胡椒粉
-Balsamic Vinaigrette
-橄欖油
(以上份量隨意)

做法:
1.最重要將生菜洗淨後抹乾或者待乾後才使用
2.將生菜切小、草莓切片,牛油果可以切粒或者片備用
3.為了保持水果新鮮,避免直接跟醋料一起拌,所以先將Balsamic Vinaigrette跟橄欖油與生菜拌好然後再下其他材料
4.曬上鹽+胡椒粉
