27th-Feb-2011 04:57 pm
The SO and I had a late night event on FoodConnect box collection day, but nonetheless the SO organised to pick it up immediately before heading to our event.

  • Ginger x 1
  • Corn x 2
  • Potatoes x 8
  • Lettuce x 1
  • Mushrooms x 5
  • Tomatoes x 4
  • Pumpkin x a quarter
  • Sweet potatoes x 4
  • Zucchini x 2
  • Apples x 5
  • Bananas x 2
  • Pears x 2
  • Grapes – Black Muscat x 1

Check out how huge that lettuce is! We've been eating it the last 2 days with roast chicken and it is so yum! I'm not sure if we can finish the sweet potatoes, as we have been accummulating them. They're not our fondest vegetable and I don't do roasts often. Anyone with any ideas what to make with them?

Sweet potato fries? I just liked them zapped in the microwave a bit with some margarine...

That sounds do-able. How long do you zap them for?

I had this bookmarked so I am guessing I did it this way before: http://www.mealsforyou.com/cgi-bin/recipe?id.10180

Sweet potato mash? Tong sui - cooked sweet potato cubes in sweet Ginger soup?

OMG, I haven't had tong sui in aaaaaages! Now I must find me a recipe for it - with maybe lotus seeds. And hunt down from pandan leaves.

Also try using sweet potato in place of regular potatoes in Chinese soups.

uh.. porridge. sweet potato porridge

Weather here is still too warm for porridge, but will keep that in mind if we keep getting these through winter.

more water less soggy rice?
28th-Feb-2011 09:18 pm (UTC) - sweet potato rice
back home in singapore my mum's favourite would be to just cut the sweet potato up in cubes, and put it with the rice to cook in rice cooker. the rice comes out sweeter and slightly orange too.

Ooo! I might try that and throw in some bamboo shoots for some crunch too.
