Pate chinois

40 minutes - 4 servings 1c2rv3l

Whenever i ask Devine what he wants to eat, he'll always say pasta. I don't always say yes to this, not unless i want to eat pasta everyday. Secondly, he'll ask for Pâté Chinois. It's always hard for me to say no to, so i succumb, peek into the fridge and see what variation of it i can make. It's a super versatile dish, my recipe has layers consisting of tofu and burmese tofu, green peas, sweet potato and cauliflower.

Pâté Chinois is very much like Shepherd's pie, which is why i will use these 2 terms interchangeably in this recipe. My mom made this all the time when i was a kid, she would make the traditional meat version, with corn and all. My meals are always meatless, but it has the same general idea. This dish inspires the same kind of comfort.

I've made versions of this dish with just cauliflower, or just using tofu, or just potatoes too. I've made it so often, i've gone through every possibility. This Pâté Chinois happened because me and Devine both wanted different things.

I wanted cauliflower...

...he wanted sweet potato.

I wanted burmese tofu...

...he wanted tofu.

So what did we do? We combined it all so both of us will get what we want! Ever since i discovered burmese tofu i've been making it regularly, so it's simple for me to add it to recipes. If you don't have time to make it (it only takes 15 minute of active prep time), just using tofu alone will be delicious.

Hope you like this recipe!

Flautas de coliflor

30 minutes - 5 servings 2ov1of1c2rv

Flautas de coliflor or 'Cauliflower flutes'; a delicious treat, consisting of curried cauliflower wrapped in corn tortillas, and draped with an avocado-coriander sauce. The flutes are also topped with some roasted, thyme-pumpkin bits.

Typically, this type of dish is fried in oil; i thought they would be just as delicious as cold wraps. For a hot version, place in pan with a bit of vegetable oil (canola or corn oil) and fry until browned on both sides. Then, add the sauce and toppings.

It's best to steam the tortillas, before spooning in the filling to help soften them. That way they can be folded easily, with no risk of tearing - No one wants torn tortillas.

Most people steam the tortillas beforehand with a microwave; to do this, put your tortillas in a bag, and heat for 30 seconds. Note that I don't have a microwave at home, it's an appliance I don't care to own. - i've always done well without it. If like me, you don't have one, you can use a big pot with a basket steamer, or a colander - it works just fine. Just make sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of your steamer, or colander; because what you will get are wet tortillas - much unpleasantness.

Made these on a lazy sunday afternoon, it's quick and very delicious!
