Recipe below: I've always been a fan of the standard grilled corn with butter and herbs🌽 . However, I wanted to do something a little bit different...and I thought to myself, why not add some chili oil to the recipe? 💡 What better way to celebrate my love for grilled corn and Asian spices 🌶 than to combine the two together??? 💚 For this recipe, I've decided to team up with Lee Kum Kee to bring you guys this delicious and simple side dish that can be whipped up in just 30 minutes from start to finish!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I hope you guys had an amazing weekend! Awhile ago, I told you guys that this year, I’m trying to adopt a plant-based diet a couple of times a week - not only to help improve my health but also to help the environment and animal welfare as well! It was incredibly easy to make these vegan tacos and they are INCREDIBLY delicious!!! Not only do the beluga lentils have a hint of spice from the cumin seasonings, the guacamole and the chipotle crema lend a creaminess that help elevate the dish to a whole new level. Top these babies with some crispy and refreshing pea shoot slaw and I assure you that these are easily some of the tastiest vegan tacos that you will ever eat!!!
Note: This post is in collaboration with Purple Carrot, a food delivery company that focuses on plant-based foods! The link for the recipe will be here! If you don't want to click there, I will go ahead and put the recipe that they posted on their page down below:
•Extra Virgin Olive Oil
•1 Medium Onion
•1 Large bell Pepper(s)
•Serrano peppers or Jalapenos (*pick and choose whichever you like depending on your heat preference)
•3 Garlic cloves
•1 tbsp paprika & 1/2 tbsp cumin
•1 can of whole peeled tomatoes (*if you have regular tomatoes in hand, you can soften them up in the microwave and crush them with your hands)
•6 eggs 🍳
•Feta cheese 🧀
•Salt and Pepper to taste @mccormickspice
•Heat olive oil in a large skillet or a sauté pan over medium-high heat
•Add the chopped onion and bell pepper to the pan. Cook until everything slightly softens
•Add the diced chili and garlic into the pan and sauté for about 5-7 mins
•Sprinkle the paprika and cumin and stir around for about a minute
• Take the crushed tomatoes and add it to the pan. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 15 or so min. You can either increase or decrease your simmering time if you like a slightly runnier or thicker sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste.
•Make 6 wells and slowly break the eggs directly into them. While they're cooking, you can spoon a bit of the sauce to cover the egg white. •At this point, I will cover the pan with a lid and reduce the heat to the lowest setting. It should take another 7-8 minutes and then you are done! Sprinkle some cilantro and feta cheese on top and you got yourself a stellar dish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! As always, cooking should be fun! Just adjust the cooking time to your liking. ❤
Sorry for the 2 weeks hiatus guys! I took 2 weeks off from the Insta life to focus on my studies and I'm really glad that it is paying off! It has been a crazy month so far but you gotta work hard for your dream right?! If you have any questions about the lemon bars or any recipe suggestions, feel free to comment down below and let me know!!! :)
•2 cups + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
•1/2 pound unsalted butter at room temperature
•1/2 cup granulated sugar
•1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
•4 extra-large eggs at room temp
•1 ½ cups granulated sugar
•⅔ cup lemon juice (if you want to add more lemon juice, then just add a bit more flour to compensate for the extra filling!)
•Zest from 2-3 lemons (adjust it to your taste)
•¼ cup flour
•Confectioners' sugar/powdered sugar
■Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
■For the crust, blend the softened butter, sugar, flour, and salt until it’s well mixed. With floured hands, press the mixture into a 9x13 inch baking sheet pan
■Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until the surface has a light golden brown color. Let it cool down a bit before pouring the filling onto the crust
■In another bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and lemon zest. Then whisk in the eggs and the lemon juice until the mixture is well blended. Once the crust is cooled to room temp, pour the filling onto the crust and bake it for 24-27 minutes. Just give it a jiggle or two and see if the filling in the middle is set
■Once done, let it cool down to room temp. Cut into squares/rectangles and dust these delicious bites with confectioners/powdered sugar! ♡also, don't worry about being perfect w the cut! It gives the bars that beautiful rustic look!
I decided to make some homemade pork belly a few days ago when I saw a pic of a Korean dish called bossam, which means boiled pork wraps!!! I do think that the spice and zestiness from the kimchi do add that beautiful flavor to the entire dish! Of course, there's a similar dish in Vietnamese culture called 'banh trang cuon thit heo', which means pork spring rolls! So if you want to, you can wrap the pork belly in some rice paper with lettuce, shredded carrots, bean sprouts, sliced cucumbers, some herbs , and dip it in fish sauce!
