Meatless Zucchini Bolognese

February 13, 2018
: 4 Servings
: Easy

By:

Ingredients
  • 1 cup sundried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 3 large tomatoes
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp tamari, soy sauce, or light soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 large zucchinis
  • ***Optional Garnish
  • 1 cup walnut pieces
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp tamari or light soy sauce
Directions
  • Step 1 Place sundried tomatoes in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade and pulse into a paste, scraping down the sides of bowl as needed.
  • Step 2 Cut the fresh tomatoes and pepper in half, remove seeds, then coarsely chop and place in the food processor. Add garlic, tamari, oil, chili powder, and salt and pulse until it reaches a chunky sauce texture. The sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 week.
  • Step 3 Cut zucchinis into “noodles” using a spiralizer or a julienne peeler.
  • Step 4 Heat oven to 170°F (75°C). Line a 13×9-inch baking sheet with a clean tea towel. Spread zucchini noodles over the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. This will improve the texture of the zucchini by reducing moisture.
  • Step 5 Prepare the garnish: Place walnut pieces and cumin in the clean bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse until crumbly. Add oil and tamari and pulse to combine.
  • Step 6 To serve, arrange zucchini noodles on individual plates. Top with some of the sauce and garnish, if you wish.

NOURISHING SNOW PEAR LONGAN CHINESE SOUP REICPE 雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯

NOURISHING SNOW PEAR LONGAN CHINESE SOUP REICPE 雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯

As the weather gets colder and Autumn-Winter approaches it is very important to nourish ourselves from within. This snow pear longan sweet soup (雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯) is suitable for all ages. It helps to nourish the lungs and reduces coughing, reduces fire, removes dampness and heals the spleen and kidney. Longan calms and soothe the nerves…

This soup is neutral and suitable for most people. While it carries a sweet taste that can pass for a dessert if you add more dates.

The soup colour has a light brown colour.

To speed up the cooking process I like using the InstantPot Duo . Instead of a 6 hours boil, cooking time can be reduced to 1.5 hours.

 

Health Benefits of Chinese Herbs
