Kishi

Side Quest 5 - COOKING PVP

Recommended Posts

Yeah, it's a little late. But get ready, because this is gonna be the toughest, gnarliest challenge ever. Awwww, yeah. You ain't even ready. It's gonna be-

 

...

 

seriously. What is that amazing smell? It smells like all my hopes and dreams. Apparently, my hopes and dreams smell like sweet potatoes. :)

 

Yep, after seeing all the cooking topics come up yesterday, I decided to have a change of heart and go with a food-related challenge. After all. Being tough takes energy, and you need to get it somewhere, right?

 

So, here's how it's gonna be: someone posts a recipe. If someone else wants to try it out, you are entered into a match. Winner of each match is decided based on how long it took to prep the meal and whether it was edible or not.

 

Casual participation with food porn is encouraged, but keep it classy - each steak was some cow's offspring at one point. ;)

 

GO!

>_> So RisenPhoenix and I had been discussing doing a PVP with cooking. You must have read our minds.

RISENPHOENIX I CHALLENGE YOU.

(I'm in the midst of finding a recipe.)

 

Actually, it was RisenPhoenix who gave me the idea. And I thought maybe y'all could use a break from the torture challenges. :)

Ahh. I suppose that makes more sense than you being psychic...

Alright, here goes!

 

Caponerd's Beef Stroganoff recipe! (actually, I found it online but don't remember where...)

 

1 Onion (I prefer red for this one)

1 Carrot

1 Blue Styrofoam thingie of mushrooms (cup?)

2 Tablespoons of garlic (diced)

1 pound ground beef

1 cup Greek yogurt

1 Beef Bullion cube

 

Cook the ground beef in a large pan until it is no longer pink, then add the onions. garlic and bullion cube. leave them in to cook a little bit before adding chopped carrot and mushrooms. Stir in a cup of Greek yogurt and you are done!

 

Yeah, super basic. Any cooking newbs feel free to try this out, it is almost impossible to mess up. Which is why I cook it fairly often! I have a picture, but can anyone tell me how to paste it from my computer?

No, I'm still pretty sure Kishi is psychic.  Magical Guild Leader powers, I tell you.

 

RISENPHOENIX I CHALLENGE YOU.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

 

Kinda.

 

Uh, so, slight kink on my end.  I have a friend visiting starting today, who's the pickiest eater in the world.  I kinda convinced him to try some of my infamous curried sweet potato and lamb stew, but most of the time we're going to be out and about.  Until Sunday.  When I will then have little energy to do anything cooking related.  So I'm kinda gonna miss this challenge.  Unless we accept these bad boys. 

 

Baconsprouts_zps9506e3a9.jpg

 

Garlic and Bacon Brussels sprouts.  Two slices of bacon, pan fried.  Some of the fat drained off and the remainder used to saute the quartered sprouts, which were also covered in some garlic powder (was too lazy to use proper garlic >.> <.< ) and a bit of pepper.  Then used a bit of water tossed in the pan to steam the suckers so they were completely cooked.

 

Another option for Sunday could be me playing with kale.  Raptron and AKLulu were kinda making fun of me Wednesday morning when I admitted most of my vegetables for my meals come from steamer bags.  (To be fair, getting home at 8 most night from aikido means I want to just devour as many things as possible, as quick as possible.  Five minutes to cook a large quantity of veggies is a good plan, in my book.  When I have guests I don't do that, but those are rare occasions.)  Anyway, I bought a bunch of kale and was going to play with it.  Maybe make kale chips or something.  Something with salt and garlic (I've been craving salt, lately.  I realized that last night when I was mindlessly munching on my roommate's open bag of chips.  Whoops).

 

Of course, another option is something Hobbit-inspired.  Friend is coming up mainly to go see the Hobbit.  Tolkien-fare may overcome his picky habits.

Ooooo.... I love beef stroganoff.  It was one of my favorite dishes my mother would make when I was growing up.  I think I may have to try this in the near future.

Here's a few favourites.  I'm not so big on fixed recipes so they're both pretty flexible.

 

Strawberry banana protein ice cream

1 medium banana - peeled, sliced, and frozen

140g Frozen sliced strawberries

30g vanilla whey protein powder, though I keep meaning to try it with chocolate

130g greek yogurt

 

Place all in food processor and process until fluffy and smooth.  Serves two, leftovers do not save terribly well in the freezer.

 

Garam Masala Veggies and Protein - contents are flexible depending on what I have so it isn't really a fixed recipe.  This is my best version.

 

1 tsp olive oil

50g kale (or swiss chard or spinach) - washed and chopped, including the stem.

75g mushrooms

15g sun dried tomatoes

100g zucchini, sliced with peel

75g edible pod peas (sugar snap preferably)

30g Halloumi cheese

100g chicken (pre-cooked and chopped)

60g Tuna (half can of drained tuna in water)

Lots of garam masala spice mix ~1/2 to 1 tsp, depending on how much you like it.

 

Sometimes I use both chicken and tuna, sometimes one or the other.  Makes one BIG meal or two small ones.

 

Large frying pan over low/med heat.  Heat oil a bit, add mushrooms and tomatoes and cook until mostly done.  Add everything else, cook another 5 or so min until the kale is soft but the zucchini isn't mushy.

After hours and hours of meditating about the right recipe I finally have my champion. Or two of them.
 
Lets start with:
Mysterious Potato and His Companions (because I could not find proper word to describe it, even google failed)
 
We need potatos and zucchini, in 2 to 1 proportion, one big carrot and around two onions. Also three table spoons of linseed.
Now grate potatos, carrot and onions, and proceed zucchini to a smooth paste. 
Mix everything and add some hot pepper powder and salt if you wish.
 
Form little cutlets and fry it on olive oil.
 
Best when served with paste made from avocado and garlic.
 
 
Mighty beetroot:
 
This very simple, but I truly love this way of consuming beetroot.
 
Take as many beetroots as you wish. Peel them and cut in thick slices, and put them in heat-resistant vessel. Pour some olive (or other) oil on them, and add some provence herbs. Now put it in the oven and bake for about 40 min in 180 degrees.
In meantime prepare some pumpkin seeds. Just before taking beetroots out roast them on pan, and use to sprinkle beetroots before serving.
 
And enjoy.
 
I just tried:

 

 

 

Strawberry banana protein ice cream

1 medium banana - peeled, sliced, and frozen

140g Frozen sliced strawberries

30g vanilla whey protein powder, though I keep meaning to try it with chocolate

130g greek yogurt

 

Place all in food processor and process until fluffy and smooth.  Serves two, leftovers do not save terribly well in the freezer.

 

 

I took the liberty to veganize it, so instead of yoghurt I added silky tofu. It came out great and I loved it, despite the fact it's snowing outside so not the best time for ice cream. I will be making it again, when the winter is over.

Hey, eat what you can :-)  Glad you liked it.  I hear that tofu is incredibly versatile and useful.  Which protein powder do you like?  Is it easy to sub whey for something else?

 

Hmmm, I've been meaning to try beets.  I friend loves them roasted but this seems a bit more my speed.  The other one looks good too.
