Yummy Green Grub!

  • Dec 13, 2009
1
Soursop
On its own, eaten as a fruit or drank as a juice, Soursop is refreshing. It has a unique taste and impossible to describe. Having tried it, one would never forget it. Not 'stinky' like Durian as some may choose to define Durian, it certainly is in a class of its own.
2
Lime
More specifically, lime juice is another refreshing drink. Lime on its own add taste to many Asian cuisines and is crucial to bring out the taste of Vietnamese, Thai and Indonesian cuisine. If you've not tried it before, try drinking it as a juice. In addition, a twist to this wonderful drink is Sugar cane juice mixed with lime! Best in tropical weather.
3
Avocado
It is rich and used abundantly in Japanese and Indonesian cuisine. It can be eaten raw or as the Japanese likes it, in California Roll. Alternatively, as a dessert in Indonesian cuisine, it's unbeatable when mixed with brown sugar and a tinge of coffee. A most recent discovery is Avocado mixed with Soursop or alternatively Mung beans.
4
Green Tea
I don't remember ever since when I fall in love with Green Tea but my guess is after my first few visits to Japan. The most expensive I've ever drank was probably those that cost something like US$100 per 100 grams! Yes, that's how highly prized green tea is in Japan. In China, green tea like Longjing (龙井茶) was drank by the emperor in the ancient days. Anyhow, green teas come in different grades and prices. It's said to be good for health. Beats me if that's true but drink them I do!
5
Green Seedless Grapes
Some of them are so sweet that I love mixing them with cereals and milk even! Great on its own and I do love them "crunchy"!
6
Sambal Kangkong
It's not something I must have but it's one that I long to have whenever I'm in the mood for Indonesian cuisine. Kangkong is a typical Indonesian & Malaysian vegetable and when stir fried with Sambal, it becomes a most delicious dish.
7
Edamame
A popular appetizer in the Japanese cuisine although if one has them in a Japanese restaurants, it's darn expensive! I found them in supermarkets in Shanghai 2 years ago at dirt cheap prices. All one has to do is to simply boil them and they serve as a great snack! My alternative to chips!
8
Salsa Verde
The best I've ever had was from a restaurant in Cancun. I haven't had much outside Mexico though & that's been a long time back!
