Malunggay Soup and Oatmeal Bread


Malunngay Powder in the jar tastes less "swampy" than the dried version i brought from Manila.

Oatmeal and Wheat Germ bread, just slightly warmed. My lunch yesterday and i did not feel hungry until 5 pm.


I used 3/4 teaspoon of the Malunggay Powder (standard measuring teaspoon). The jar comes with its own mini teaspoon so use 3 of this.

The soup is a puree of soybeans, celery, carrots and mushroom that i had stashed in the freezer for some 3 weeks now, just reheat it with the Malunggay Powder, add salt and pepper and a small pinch of paprika.


Dried Malunggay my brother made for me to bring to New York, too strong a taste so use gradually and taste every now and then. I am experimenting so i think the jarred version will be more pleasing to those who are first time Malunggay eaters.

Use


Whether you like it or not, it will taste different so learn how to use spices sparingly like i do. I make my own blend of spices from www.spicesage.com, they ship for free when you order at least $35.oo worth of spices and no tax. I never thought spices could taste that good when they are F R E S H. Some of them i will grind fresh like the Caraway, Dill, Coriander, Whole Peppercorns etc., because i don't use them often the way i use fennel, sage, thyme and the others.

The reason why i am hyping about Malunggay is that my mother, who is totally gray haired from nape to forehead is now sporting tufts of black hair growing from the roots. She has been taking Malunggay pills for about a month now, and we just could not believe that she is undergoing some reverse aging of some sort. Her skin is supple at 82, hair thicker and getting darker, i just commented on how smooth her skin was too when i saw her this February, little did i know that she was taking this pills for quite some time now.

So if you are balding maybe you can try this one too.

3rd Class Flour, What's It All About

For starters i cannot make this Hard Monay if i did not bring any 3rd class flour or soft weak flour to New York. Once i ran out of 3rd class and tried Cake Flour, it turned bad, do not even think of using All Purpose, it will be soft but not chewy as this one made with yes, 3rd class indeed. So third class is hard to find here in the US if you will use that term. You have to say or look for soft wheat flour, that's it, not hard wheat flour, not cake or All purpose but something in between these two. It is easy to find in the Phil., just ask your local bakery suppliers and they know it is Tercera. Tercera is not for bread, bakers use it basically for cookies, cakes and other pastries, but we bakers know how to create bread recipes using part of this flour with the bread flour or hard wheat flour. It makes a softer version of any of your fave breads, with a cheaper price tag. Plus if i own a bakery, i get to use the third class for my cakes and cookies, lowering my food cost i…

July Session

This is the only session I had so far where i used 2 different brands of flour which is Globe by Universal Robina and Sun Moon Star by Pilmico.Now, if you have attended my class, and I know some of my former students still read my blog then you know that i preach water and adore first class flours with a high protein content. Anything that is lower than my expected level is out of the book just like this popular brand I will call Brit (not it's real name). If you know your history and you bake breads, you know what this brand is. Now, you can certainly email me so I can divulge to you in secret what this horrible I mean disappointing brand of first class is.First off, it does not deserve it's price tag. Too expensive for an over P800.00 per sack flour when a P720.00 sack can use up more water. Why is that important? Well, too long to discuss but I hope your teacher can tell you why. If not, then you went to the wrong school.So here I am, using my student's flour ( they alr…

Baking Pandesal, Once Again on Proofing

I finished my one one one last August, fortunately my student arrived and made it on time before i left or went back to New York. Originally, she was asking for a September 23 to 27 date and since my flight was September 7, i had to decline her request.

I was surprised to hear from her a couple of days later when she changed her mind and decided to go home so she can catch up with me. Paid her deposit and we set the date. 3 days later, she sent me a photo of one of her cook, badly burned and all bandaged up from the hospital. Class postpone. I prayed for her that she gets well so my student can still make it. I was thinking, she would have to wait till December and well, December being a busy month, i have a feeling we will not make it and i have to return her deposit.

Praise G-d, she made it and we had a really really fun session. Her goal was to bake Pandesal and Ensaimada. She has a restaurant in Taiwan and she caters to Pinoys there selling Chicken Inasal which judging from her st…
