Yesterday no cooking just dinning outside of the house, they made some real nice vegan dinner for me at pont 13 ( ferry 13 this used to be a ferry for cars and buses between Amsterdam and the North of Amsterdam)
My boyfriend really surprised me and made me really happy and feel like a lady again and no mum!!. I put on my nicest clothes and my zombie high heels shoes, ok on the end of the evening I realized I drunk much, so the high heels were a problem 😉
After the dinner we went to a nice feel-good-film (Les femmes de 6-eme etage) with Jael (the laughing lady) also, I really loved it, after the film I felt so happy and felt like, do not complain but enjoy life. Ok it works for one week and after you have again all the “problems’ !!
So today recovering from all the alcohol in my body and chatting with my friends Judith and Kimberley, about the daily life, …drinking tea and eating home-baked cupcakes (They were really surprising! the taste: chocolate/ coffee cupcakes), I still wanted to put my recipe from the nasi goreng (I think it’s Indonesian food) on the blog, so also today is the day for it…because it is again raining outside pffff…and my friends went for their home.
It’s not the most healthiest dinner but sometimes you have to have greasy food!
So the ingredients of the nasi goreng with peanut sauce (4 persons)
for 4 persons cooked rice
100 gram chard cut in little pieces
200 gram Chinese cabbage cut in slices
1 onion cut in whatever you like
250 gram green beans cut in half
1/2 tablespoon curry powder*
1/2 tablespoon ground coriander*
1/2 tablespoon ground turmeric (to make the rice yellow)*
1/4 tablespoon ground cumin*
(Maybe if you like bake some tempeh)
* approximately, because I always do this on taste
For the sauce
2 cups water
some fresh ginger root like 2 cm by 2 cm grated
1 tablespoon peanut butter
2 cloves of garlic
100 gram of peanuts
5 by 5 cm of santen (coconut cream)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 onion cut in little pieces
some sambal (hot pepper sauce)
½ lemon ripped of the juice
some oil for cooking
a sauce pan
a cooking pan
a wooden spoon
So what to do…?
cook the rice and in a colander you put the Chinese cabbage and green beans for steaming ( 10 min) above the cooking pan.
When the rice is ready get rid of the water (maybe you can put in a glass and use it for something else, rice water) put the spices in the rice, the same like the Chinese cabbage, green beans and chard.
In a sauce pan you put some oil and bake the onions (the half of the onions you put in the rice) after you put also the garlic in it, In a meanwhile you boil the 2 cups of water in a kettle and get a bowl. Mix the santen (coconut cream) and the water in the bowl. And now you can pour the mixture in the saucepan, put the peanut butter, the soy sauce, ginger root peanuts, sambal and lemon juice all together in the pan.(If the sauce is too watery put some all purpose flower in it to get it more thick). Stir and the sauce is ready, get some nice plate, put some rice on it and pour on top of the rice some sauce And the dinner is ready!!
enjoy your meal/ selamat makan
