Veggies & cheese Omelette

4 Jul

I had some eggs left…inspired from the family version of the piperade, but with other veggies since i didn’t have them.

– Green Aspargus
– Broccoli
– 2 eggs
– 1/2 slice of Bayonne ham
– 4 really thin slices of camembert
– pepper
– 1 tablespoon of olive oil
(- butter for the omelette if you want)

Cook your aspargus and bocolis in a pan with the olive oil. Remove them from the pan. Beat your eggs and add the butter if you want to, the ham. Empty it in your pan with the remaining of oil from your veggies, quickly add the cheese and the vegetables. You can do an omelette or like scrambled eggs, as you prefer. Once cooked, add the pepper. You shouldn’t need any salt because of the ham and the cheese.

NCCU – Jim’s burger

31 Mar

I’ve been there twice now, and it’s one of the foreign students’ favorite places. Jim’s burger is one of the few to provide salads, sandwiches, hamburgers, pancakes, toasts and bagels for a price under 100NTD. So of course all the girls run there when the university bell rings to have a chance to get a seat. Last time i tried there salad, which was nice with cheese, salad, pasta, tacos, olives, chicken, tuna or beef depending what you order. The only bad point is their sauce which is sweet and that i don’t really like, and which you can’t ask to be removed.

This time i tried a chicken-egg bagel, which was actually a chicken omelette bagel. The chicken was to totally cooked. I also discovered that i wasn’t really fond of bagels (i had never eaten any before). It was nice to try anyway. So if you crave for foreign food and well-balanced one, you definetely have to go there!

Oyster Omelette

13 Nov

Yeah, i ate Oysters. I had to try one of the most typical Taiwanese night market food, so i did it. But that was the one and only time. I just hate it, because of oysters, so i can’t really say anything about it. Just put sauce on it, because it doesn’t have any taste without it. I think that’s the main point of the omelette. It doesn’t have any interest without sauce.

Restaurant Sanshia

24 Oct

The Taiwanese students brought us to a typical restaurant. I was able to recognize to dishes that i had already tried, but the discovery of the day was the fried tofu (the biggest picture). That’s really good! Otherwise, as usual: a tofu soup, cabbage, tofu and oysters (didn’t try this one, you know why), chicken, omelette with shrimps, pig blood, bamboo, mushrooms, beef and onions, and beef and cabbage. Nice, but the beef and onion wasn’t that great because of the meat.

Taiwanese Breakfast part 2

25 Sep

Another typical taiwanese breakfast (3 meals for me) today.

I tried a chocolate steamed bread (巧克力馒头). I tasted more like licorice than chocolate, and it was quite tasteless in fact. Not really good, but since it’s steamed, i guess that’s why it’s like this. I really like the shape though.

Secondly, i tried a congpao (葱包), with a lot of pepper, onion and some other plants but i’m not really sure of what it is. The bread tasted like real western bread, maybe less salted but there was quite a lot of pepper so it was hard to say. On the top, there were some seeds. Quite good.

Then, i went for the famous fried thing called Youtiao (油條) for taiwanese breakfast. Oily, fat, and even if it’s dough, that’s really empty inside, not like churros at all. And it’s salted. But just too oily for me.

Then tried the pancake i had last time but with cheese and bacon. They didn’t do it the same way as the other shop, and the taste was quite different, but this is like a real omelette. And the other pics are some i took in the morning. The one on the right is people queueing for their breakfast in the famous shop. The one in the middle is the shop i tried today.

Finally, i chose a little cake called supin or something like that. I thought there would be mean inside but it’s just like red beans execpt that’s white and the inside is a little bit like “pâte feuilletée”/puff pastry.

Cep Omelette or the art of cooking an Omelette

10 Aug

This is an easy recipe if you have so many ceps that you don’t know how to cook them anymore. I just watched a video about how to make a great omelette. Yeah, that may sound stupid, because an omelette is really easy to make, but in fact there’re a lot of tips that will help you to make a really great omelette.

Ingredients for 3 people:
– 6 eggs to room temperature
– 20g of butter to room temperature
– ceps as you want
– 1 garlic in pieces
– parsley
–  chive
– oil
– salt & pepper
(- if you have: goose fat)

In a frying pan, cook your ceps in small pieces the Sarlat ways: goose fat/oil, cook your mushrooms 5 mn, add the parley, the garlic, the chive and cook again 10mn.Add salt/pepper if needed.

Heat another your frying pan with a really small heat because the pan will heat uniformly, and then your omelette will have a nice color everywhere and be be burned of too cooked.

Break your eggs by knocing on a table and not on your container (or the shell would get in your egg and you would have some pieces, and you don’t want that). Mix your eggs using a spatula and not a whisk because air would go in your eggs and dry them.
Add your butter in small pieces in your eggs to hydrate them.

Soak a kitchen paper with oil that you spread on your frying pan then put your eggs. Mix a little and wait 3mn, add salt and pepper if needed, then pour your ceps on half of the omelette and fold your omelette to cover your ceps.

Voici une petite recette rapide si vous avez des cèpes à ne plus savoir quoi en faire. J’ai regardé une vidéo sur comment faire une omelette, et donc je voulais essayer. Oui, rigolez, faire une omelette c’est super facile, faire en faire une uniformément dorée d’une belle couleur et un peu baveuse, allez-y, est-ce que vous connaissez toutes les astuces, hein??

Ingrédients pour 3:
– 6 oeufs à température ambiante
– 20g de beurre à température ambiante
– cèpes coupés en petits morceaux mais pas trop car ils réduisent à la cuisson
– persil en morceaux
– ciboulette en morceaux
– ail en morceaux
– huile
– poivre & sel
– et si vous avez: graisse d’oie

Dans une poêle, cuire vos champignons à la sarladaise (graisse d’oie/ huile, rajouter les champignons, attendez 5mn que ça cuise un peu, rajouter l’ail, le persil, la ciboulette) et continuer environ 10mn. Ajouter sel et poivre.

Faire chauffer à feux très doux une autre poêle.

Casser les œufs sur le plan de travail, pas sur le récipient, car la coquille à tendance à rentrer quand un tape sur le rebord, ce qui fait qu’il reste des bouts de coquilles. Mélanger vos œufs à la spatule et non au fouet, car au fouet, l’air rentre dans les œufs et les assèche.
Rajouter le beurre en petits morceaux.
Une fois la poêle uniformément chauffée, tremper votre sopalin dans de l’huile et étaler sur le fond de la poêle, ce qui permettra à l’omelette d’avoir une seule couleur unique et non pas des endroits trop cuits et d’autres pas assez.

Verser vos oeufs battus, mélanger quelques secondes au milieu pour bien étaler la préparation et attendre 3 mn qu’elle soit baveuse. Verser vos champignons sur une moitié de votre omelette, et la plier en deux de façon à recouvrir vos cèpes. C’est prêt!!
