Monday and I am off!

Breakfast of tofu scramble and cream of buckwheat. I wanted to make a nutritious breakfast. This one has lots of protein, iron, and vitamin C.
Before...

After!

Bibingka
(Coconut rice desert)

3 cups sweet rice
1/2 can coconut milk
1 cup raw sugar with 2 Tbsp organic molasses combined (this is how you make brown sugar. You can also add 1 cup brown sugar instead if you do not want to make it)
1 tsp vanilla (optional)

Preheat over to 350. Cook sweet rice in rice cooker. In a saucepan, combine coconut milk and half of the brown sugar mixture. Cook on medium until thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir constantly or it will burn. Put cooked rice into a bowl. Reserving 1/2 cup of the coconut milk mixture, stir remainder and remaining brown sugar evenly into the hot rice. Pour into baking pan. Top with the reserved 1/2 cup coconut milk mixture. Bake for 20 minutes, then broil for five minutes to set topping. Cut and serve!


Dinner was a Tofurkey dog with some of my kimchi and avocado, lots of mustard and ketchup.

  4. Nelly- ya I really like the Tofurkey brand sausages.

    Shen- haha yes they are, but people are very stingy with them. I buy canned coconut milk a lot and then get coconuts for two dollars each in North Shore when I go out that way.

  8. Mangocheeks- I really like cream of buckwheat. I pretty much only decided to buy it so that I could use it as a source of iron.

    Rose- The sweet rice is so yummy. If you have access to sweet rice you should try making it. Super easy!
