Western rice soup

24 Mar

Maybe Taiwan has started to influence me, because i eat rice everyday nowadays, in my soup. Rice soup is often eaten when you’re sick or for breakfast, but I prepare my own for diner. I don’t really like the Asian version because I find it too bland, so I use the same principle to make a different one. It’s simple and convenient for students, you just need the micro-waves and 8mn!

Ingredients:
– 1 asian instant soup of your choice (they’re creamier than the western soup and don’t have the ame flavors)
– 3 table soups of rice
–  Tofu, mushrooms….whatever you want
– Spices if you want: I use curry if it can go with the instant soup

 Put your rice, soup powder and all the other things you want to add in you soup. Add enough water to cover everything, mix and put 8mn in the micro-waves. Ready!

You can put whatever you want in your soup, so it’s always different.

Another round!

Bamboo or the Matcha Tea Opéra.

You first smell the matcha tea and then the chocolate. Well-balanced, you can find all the texture, from the slightly crispy thin chocolate layer to the tea mousse to the tea powder and biscuit. I think this one is one of the best-made pastries i have ever seen and also a really beautiful one.
So what’s the problem?… I don’t like Matcha tea. So i recognize that this is a really nice one, but since i don’t like the flavor in itself, i won’t take it again.

Coffee and walnuts, it’s more famous than the bamboo pastry. However i was quite disappointed by the coffee mousse that was too sweet for me compared to a coffee cream. And i don’t know if it’s me or if it’s really like this but i thought that the coffee tasted like the Taiwanese coffee taste they use in their pastries and bread, which is sweeter and has a strong taste of coffee but doesn’t actually taste like drinking coffee. As for the walnuts, it’s really not convenient to eat the pastry since you can’t cut it because of them. The little biscuits on the top don’t bring anything special. Not really good because of the coffee mousse, but the mixture of coffee and walnuts was nice.

The vanilla-almond diamants. Just loved them, the vanilla flavor was here, it was crispy not too sweet.
