Wheatgrass Egg Tofu with Shrimp and Broccoli

Today I decided to make this dish again after so long. My best friend of 30 years is coming over to visit me, and this is one of the dish that I prepared, because she is a tofu lover! Apart from this dish, I still have other dishes prepared like Salted Egg Yolk Prawn, Seafood clear soup with Fish Maw, Steamed Seabass and Black Vinegar Chicken. One of these days, I will write out the recipe for the Black Vinegar Chicken to share with you too.

Vegetable Ingredients

  • 200g broccoli

Method

  • Prepare some ice water and set aside.
  • Add a pinch of salt into a pot of boiling water, blanch the broccoli for 2 minutes. Drain and put it into the ice water to stop the cooking process. Remove from the ice water after a minute, drain and set aside.

Egg Tofu Ingredients

  • 6 eggs (55g each)
  • 16g wheatgrass (chopped)
  • 400g unsweetened soy milk (200+200g)
  • pinch of fine salt
  • aluminium tray lined with cooking paper ( I bought the cooking paper from Phoon Huat, see photo below)

Method :

  • Using Blender blend the wheatgrass with 200g of soy milk. Sieve the wheatgrass, set aside the wheatgrass juice. Dispose the grass.
  • Beat the egg until the egg yolk and egg white are well combined. You should not see any coagulation of the egg white.
  • Add the wheatgrass juice and the remaining 200g of soy milk and salt, mix again until well combined.
  • Use a sifter to sieve the mixture. Pour your mixture onto a tray lined with cooking paper, steam at medium heat for about 20 minutes. Kindly note that the steaming time depends on how thick your egg tofu is. The pan I used is 7″ pan. There is no definite rule to this because everyone’s burner are not the same. Material of the pan and other factors might contribute to the timing. The important thing is just keep an eye on it, and when you see the top of your mixture solidifies then it means it is already cook, unlike cake that you still need to use a skewer to poke and check if it is all well done.
  • Turn off the heat, and let it cool.
  • Flip and pat dry, cut to your desired size.
  • Pan-Fry each pieces and set aside. Lay it neatly on a plate. Lay also the blanched broccoli on top

Ingredients for the toppings

  • 1 pack bunashimeji mushrooms
  • 100g shrimp
  • 1 small minced shallots
  • 1 small minced garlic
  • 15g red bell pepper (chopped into small pieces)
  • 15g yellow bell pepper ( chopped into small pieces)
  • 245g chicken broth ( Swanson brand)
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • 5g cornstarch + 10g water to make slurry

Method

  • In a heated wok, drizzle about 1 tablespoon of oil. Sauté the spices like garlic, shallots and bell peppers. Sauté until you can smell the fragrance coming out from the spices
  • Add the the mushrooms. Sauté until the mushrooms become soften
  • Add in the shrimp, followed by the broth, mix and let it boil
  • Add Salt and Pepper to taste (I didn’t add any more salt, because my chicken broth is salty enough for me, but do it according to your preference)
  • Add the Slurry, and let it boil for a minute or two. Drizzle the mixture onto the broccoli and egg tofu plate.

Baked Souffle Pancake

Baked Souffle Pancake

I love pancakes that are light, fluffy and especially jiggly. So that is what I’ll be presenting you today, a jiggly pancake! I prefer to use the oven instead of the stove as with the oven I can just leave it and do other things while it is baking. My soufflé’s risen so much, but as you know it has to be served and eaten quickly though I was so busy plating that it deflated. (Oops! Hahaha)

Ingredients

  • 117g egg white
  • 55g egg yolk
  • 45g sugar + extra for coating the ramekin
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 57g sifted All purpose flour
  • 50g melted butter + extra for brushing the ramekin
  • 95g buttermilk
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Prepare your ramekin, melt some butter and lightly brush the inside, coating it with some sugar, this will help to more easily release your pancake. Tap out excess sugar, and avoid using too much butter, you do not want to end up having an oily and too sweet pancake. I prefer to use sugar instead of flour because I do not want to see any white residue when I release the pancake from the ramekin. Preheat your oven to 190 degree celsius.

Now beat the yolk, vanilla extract, melted butter, and buttermilk altogether. Mix it until all are incorporated. Then add in your sifted flour. Beat it all together until no lumps or white residue from the flour can be seen.

Now prepare your meringue. Start by adding your egg white with the lemon juice. Use your mixer to beat until foamy. Gradually add in the sugar in 3 portions then continue beating until soft peak. Remember to not over beat!

Soft peak

Now fold in the meringue into the egg yolk batter in 3 batches. I prefer to use the whisk to slowly mix it instead of a spatula, but do it gently. You do not want all the air to pop.

Now scoop the mixed batter into your ramekin. Fill it up to 3/4 full. Bake it for about 18 minutes. Your soufflé’s should have risen nicely. Now flip your ramekin to release the pancake onto your serving plate. Sprinkle some snow powder on top for presentation.

look at the texture!
