FUSION FOOD FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

HAPPY VALENTINE’S EVERYONE!

FUSION SPRING ROLLS

If you want to make something special for valentine’s day, this could be a nice option!

After having learned to make some little stuffed things from a few countries, I now want to try to make some fusion food. I’m an international person and since I love all kinds of food, lets try to mix it up!
Here goes an idea for valentine’s day!
Lets start with a made up recipe for spring rolls as a main course. Since a piece of dough can be stuffed with anything, how about adding my favorite ingredient? CHEESE! I am adding some brie to my spring rolls, rolling it up and frying it. Thats literally it!  A long with it, we’ll make some colorful  beat salad.  Here is a nice recipe for the BEETS

Normally I like to make a beats salad with goat cheese but since we already have brie in the spring rolls, there is no need.  To compensate for the delicious crunchy deep fried spring rolls, beats work well and they are very healthy!

Why eat beets on valentine’s day:
First of all, for anyone who is dating and has plans after dinner: it’s a natural viagra!

Some other great things you should know about beats:
1 Beets are high on vitamins and minerals
2 Beets cleanse the body
3 Beets help your mental health
4 Beets are used as a stomach acid tester
5 Beets are a high source of energy

Here is our second part of our special menu for valentine’s day:

I’m making a tapioca desert.  Tapioca in the form of little balls is derived from manioc roots which are one of the most important ingredients in the Brazilian native Indian diet.   The original recipe for this is called “sagu ao vinho” a recipe that originates in the south of Brazil and is a mix with the European traditions of cooking with wine and the indigenous use of manioc. My recipe is a little different.  I’m using ginger with originally from the Indonesian Java island which has indian and Chinese history.  I love ginger specially at this time of the year.  When it’s cold, ginger is very good for sore throats.  In this delicious desert, ginger is just adding a little fragrance and a nice touch!

Enjoy!

Tapioca Desert

Two cups of tapioca pearls
A can of coconut milk
A can of evaporated milk
A can of condensed milk
A piece of ginger

Directions: 
For 8 servings
First of all, this is very simple however, you’ll be required to stir from the minute it starts boiling till the end because it is very sticky and can early burn.

Chop the ginger in thick pieces.
Add all ingredients to a large cooking pan.  Believe me, these more than triple in size!
It will probably take about 30 minutes until the pearls are soft.

Make sure you still have enough liquid when it’s done.  If it starts getting too thick you can add some normal milk.
It can be served warm or cold, it’s your call!
